"Aromas of lilac, dark berry and sandalwood follow through to a full body, with fine tannins and an intense and savory finish. Very intense and very long. Succulent. Amazing balance and depth to this red. It's so beautiful to taste now but it will be much better in five to ten years. A triumph. - (December 2014)"

"Mint, freshly cut flowers, cinnamon and sage meld into a resonant core of fruit in Ciacci's 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Vigna di Pianrosso. Here the flavors are ample, rich and built on pure volume. Readers who like bigger Brunellos will love the Pianrosso. Proprietor Paolo Bianchini has done a terrific job with Brunello that expresses the personality of Sangiovese in this site on the southern edge of Montalcino. Bianchini had the 2010 three and half years in cask. - (February 2015)"

Wine Information:

Customer Reviews

5/5 stars
Assolutamente Magnifico! - Here's the deal: Buy 6 of these today, open 1 and decant for 2 hrs and be AMAZED. The heavily perfumed complex bouquet is almost narcotic. Try to stop inhaling this nirvana long enough to take a sip and you may become emotional, it's that good. Now, pat yourself on the back for buying 6. You've got 5 left. What's the chance you'll have any left in 10 years when the wine has fully evolved? Hmmm, maybe get a case?
