    Brunello di Montalcino "Pianrosso Santa Caterina d'Oro" Riserva DOCG 2015 <br>6 Bottles in OWC

    The single-vineyard Riserva Vigna di Pianrosso Santa Caterina d'Oro, filled only in exceptional years, is a fine and delicate wine, endowed with great depth, perfectly balanced power and plenty of drive. Mocha, black cherry, smoke, liquorice and dark, fleshy fruits are some of the typical signatures of this extreme growth. Juicy and full-bodied on the palate, it gradually opens up with finely meshed tannin and lots of cherry, showing itself to be highly elegant and describing a wide arc in its overall appearance. The 2015 edition is a particularly dark, deep Brunello that will gain even more tension and finesse during its deserved further maturation. SUPERIORE.DE

    "Sparkling, medium dense garnet red. Opens with notes of pickled cherries and black nuts, fine plum. Builds up firm pressure on the palate, grippy, hearty tannin, plus lots of sweet melting, then seems a little rough and slightly alcoholic on the final." Falstaff

    "A selection of bunches from Ciacci Piccolomini's iron-rich Pianrosso vineyard in Montalcino's southeast, this sees a long maceration and ageing in variously sized used Slavonian oak barrels. It strikes a fine balance of generous ripeness with freshness and juiciness. Pure strawberry, cherry and raspberry meet lilac, rose and an underlying minerality. It's fluid and almost easy to drink, though long, powdery tannins expand across the palate giving textural complexity. It leaves the mouth clean but wanting more with an appetising blood orange finish." Decanter

    "The 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Vigna di Pianrosso Santa Caterina d'Oro is a fine and delicate wine that cleverly delivers the intensity of the vintage but without the heaviness or the ripeness. This wine holds back, just enough, to affirm its poised balance in terms of fruit richness, texture and tannic structure. It shows symmetry throughout. Dark cherry fruit, cassis, plum, lavender and campfire ash set the tone. The mouthfeel is thickly woven and generous." Robert Parker

    "There's a bright edge to this red, harnessing the cherry, strawberry, rosehip, mineral and tobacco flavors that build on the palate to a long finish. Displays terrific energy and balance, with an aftertaste that echoes both fruit and savory elements." Wine Spectator

    "The opulence of fruit and complexity of earth, meat, mushroom and cedar is breathtaking. It's full-bodied, deep and powerful with so much intensity and depth. Chewy and layered, it goes on for minutes. Give it even more time." James Suckling
