More Brunello

The tasting seminar for the 2009 Brunello was held in a space high above the main floor of a former bank.  On the main floor there were 42 producers presenting not only the 2009, but also other Brunello vintages as well as other wines that they produce.

There is always a big turn out for this event and the main floor was very crowded. Since there were so many wines, I limited myself to tasting the 2009 Brunello but did not get to taste all of them.IMG_4732

I found most of them to be less modern in style than in the past and hopefully they will continue in this direction.

Here are 10 wines that I tasted and really liked:

Banfi

Barbi

Castelli Martinozzi

Col D’Orcia

Greppone Mazzi-Ruffino

Il Pazzone

La Fiorita 2008IMG_4733

Palazzo

Pian Delle Vigne-Antinori

Tenute Silvio Nardi
