95 Points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - 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.

94 Points Vinous - The 2009 Flaccianello is gorgeous but the relative shortcomings of the year relative to the sublime 2010 are apparent when the wines are tasted side by side. Firm tannins support a core of dark red fruit smoke and crushed flowers. Readers will need to give the 2009 time to settle down but it is unquestionably a fine Flaccianello.
