95 WA / 93 WS

The 2009 Flaccianello della Pieve is now hitting that very specific point in a wine's evolution in which you still identity some of the fruit, but you also get a supporting chorus of evolved aromas that enhance the overall finesse and depth of the bouquet. This wine is coming along beautifully and seems right on point in terms of its forward moving aging trajectory. Dried blackberry, cherry confit and plum are rounded out by spice, toast and bitter chocolate. The bouquet fires out on multiple sides, thus increasing the perceived complexity on hand. This vintage is very open and frank, and this is another endearing quality to admire. Interestingly, this vintage saw naturally high yields. Giovanni Manetti tells me they had to work very carefully in terms of green harvest and fruit selection in order to achieve this impeccable level of balance.- Monica Larner, the Wine Advocate

Elegant, this is also closed, showing some tannins at the moment, along with black cherry, black currant, and spice flavors. In an awkward phase right now, yet this feels like it will develop a little more quickly.—Non-blind Flaccianello vertical (July 2014). Best from 2016 through 2028.-Bruce Sanderson, The Wine Spectator
