    Brunello di Montalcino "Pianrosso" DOCG 2016

    Pianrosso comes from a southwestern location of the Castelnuovo dell'Abate subzone at an altitude of about 300 m with mainly Galestro soils. It opens the pleasure cinema with a rich, sparkling garnet red. The bouquet is seductive and deep with hints of dark and black fruits, sage, rose petals and violets. Then on the palate, a pronounced salty-fresh minerality that immediately enters into a wonderful harmony with the fine-grained tannins and perfectly layered fruit, powerfully guiding the wine with optimal balance into a soft, never-ending finish. The overall level of most Brunellos from this dream vintage is already extremely high, but Pianrosso 2016 raises the bar a notch higher even among these strong competitors! SUPERIORE.DE

    "Sparkling, bright garnet red. Opens with notes of tobacco and ripe plum, licorice in the background. Gripping, firm tannin on the palate spreads out richly, firm and sturdy, showing lots of ripe fruit notes, slightly malty on the final, yet rich pressure and long finish." Falstaff

    "Dark, rich and deeply alluring, the 2016 Brunello di Montalcino Pianrosso boasts a display of ripe black fruits encased in an air of crushed stone, sage and exotic spice. While velvety and almost creamy in texture, it finds harmony through juicy acids and a mix of ripe black cherry and plums. Hints of licorice and baker’s chocolate balance the Pianrosso’s salty minerality and fine-grained tannins through the long and dramatic finale. There’s beautiful symmetry here for a wine with such power. Place this in the cellar for ten years or more; but don’t make the mistake of not checking in from time to time, because I expect the 2016 to enjoy a long and open drinking window." Vinous

    "Lots going on here with black plums, ripe cherries, cedar, smoke and cocoa on the nose. Ash, chocolate, crushed walnuts and some praline. Mushrooms. This has firm, ripe tannins and a full body. Flavorful and juicy finish. Very structured." James Suckling

    "The Ciacci Piccolomini d'Aragona 2016 Brunello di Montalcino Pianrosso is a single-vineyard expression that draws its fruit from an 11.7-hectare parcel with moderately thick galestro soils with ancient marine material. This special site, awash under the brilliant light of a big, open sky, does indeed deliver a more pronounced mineral signature, with wild berry, rose and rosemary essence. This is a beautiful wine, taut and silky, with elegant tannins that will endure ambitious bottle aging." Robert Parker
