Natalie's Score: 93/100

Black and brooding as Heathcliffe on the moor (can’t think of the Italian equivalent just now, sorry). Plush, opulent layers of black plum, blackberry and smoke. Long and satisfying. Finishes with wild truffle, violets, black cherry and cigar box. Pair with truffled risotto.

Brunello Di Montalcino food pairings: beef bourguignon, spinach and pepper jack stuffed chicken, scallops with a sesame ginger dressing, toasted ravioli served with Alfredo sauce.

Reviews and Ratings

Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Brunello is like the investment piece in your wardrobe. When it's crafted well it never disappoints and always rewards the investor.This sultry red wine of 100% Sangiovese is deep garnet in the glass with inky extractions. Robust aromas and flavours of black plum, dark cherry, smoke, herbal tea, tar, leather, prune. The palate is full and tannins are evident but softening. Dark cherry leaning to tart cherry, toffee, resin, cedar. Acidity is harmonious and cleansing. A great gift wine. Pair with rare steak, roasted game meats, anything in tomato sauce. This wine is at it's best now.
Tasted: February 2015
The 2009 vintage of this Brunello di Montalcino is spectacular! Black fruit, tar, smoke, violets all wrap around your senses. Velvet texture on the palate. This wine is aged in oak casks and tonneaux. Finishes with anise and black truffle. Decant 2-3 hours. Pair with truffle risotto, mature cheeses and wild boar or game meats. - Community Wine Reviews

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
