Mate Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2009

Husband and wife Ferenc and Candace Máté have been quietly producing some very fine examples of Brunello di Montalcino at their lovely estate near that of Gianfranco Soldera and Angelo Gaja for the past several years. This 2009 Campo Alto is a new bottling and for my thoughts, the best wine they have produced to date. Displaying rich aromas of morel cherry, tar, Damson plum and a hint of coffee, this is medium-full with a rich mid-palate. It certainly is flavorful with very good varietal focus and the persistence is more pronounced in this wine as compared with previous efforts from this producer.

It looks like we don't know much about Mate or maybe we did but it's possible that they told us at a bar and the music was loud... we forget.
