88(+?) Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - June 2014

Moderately saturated red.  Aromas of black cherry, licorice, menthol and quinine, along with a slightly funky note of faded flowers and tar and underbrush nuances.  Dense and chewy but a bit folded in on itself today, with reticent red and darker fruit flavors complemented by a flinty nuance, but there's also a weedy green note I'm not wild about.  Finishes with good breadth and youthfully chewy tannins, as well as notes of wet herbal underbrush and raisin.  This is usually one of my favorite Brunellos of all, but this 2009 does not strike me as one of the better vintages made by talented owner Diego Molinari.  Tasted three different times with similar results.
