James Suckling 92 Points
A 2009 Brunello with dense, compact fruit and silky, refined tannins. Full body. Tight finish. Needs time to open. Very well done.
Decanter Magazine 91 Points
A very clean, fresh and focused wine with flint and bitter herbs plus complex dark berry notes.
Wine Advocate 90 Points
The loaded 2009 Brunello di Montalcino is packed tight with mature tones of dark fruit, cherry liqueur, kirsch, cola and dark spice. There’s a dusty, earth note that grounds the wine to a sense of Sangiovese and the special territory that shapes this sun-drenched wine. The wine is a little hot on the palate (with 14.5% alcohol) and overcharged in places, but it also offers a cheerful dose of genuine personality.
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar 90 Points
Bright red. Perfumed aromas of red cherry, blueberry, bitter chocolate, earth and violet. Not quite as dense as some other 2009 Brunellos, but boasts excellent thrust and energy to its flavors of red fruits, licorice and herbs. The big, sweet tannins arrive quite late. This appears to be a slightly more concentrated than usual entry-level Brunello for Silvio Nardi.
Intense ruby red color with garnet highlights. Clean, sophisticated, intense and complex aromas, rich in evolved overtones, with hints of anise, ripe wild berries and a light touch of vanilla. Warm with supple tannins, great structure, good length and considerable aging capacity.
Tenute Silvio Nardi consists of 80 hectares of vineyards in an unspoiled part of central Tuscany: Montalcino, whose symbol is its great red wine, Brunello. Silvio Nardi founded the estate here at Casale del Bosco; since 1985 it has been run by his youngest daughter, Emilia.
Emilia Nardi knows she can depend on Casale's special and distinctive territory to produce a contemporary and elegant Brunello. She has invested single-mindedly in the vineyards in this harmonious natural setting - as any tasting of her fine wines will attest. Each of her signature wines expresses the differing character of Sangiovese when it is grown at Montalcino.
The estate's vineyards are situated between 140 and 420 meters above sea level: some extend north-west of Montalcino on the hills around Casale del Bosco, while others are located to the north of it at Tenuta di Bibbiano and to the south-east at Manachiara, where the precious cru of the same name originates.
