Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.
Intense garnet color with a complete balsamic, spiced and fruity nose. Strong tannic structure with an ample palate. Hints of chocolate and coffee on the finish. Intense and persistent. Recommended with grilled meat and game. Excellent with aged cheeses.
"The 2005 Brunello di Montalcino Piaggione is a sensual wine endowed with layers of ripe fruit that come to life in the glass. There is a combination of richness and transparency that is alluring. A second bottle was quite a bit more firm, suggesting the wine will need a few more years in the cellar for some of the tannins to soften. This is one of the more imposing, deep wines of the vintage, and it will require patience. That said, I tasted three bottles of the 2005 Piaggione, and there appears to be a degree of bottle variation. Some bottles have been sweet, open and delicate, while others have been more stern. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2025."
The Wine Advocate
"Medium ruby. I nitially a little reduced, but opens to show floral aromas of red fruit, sweet spices and minerals. Enters smooth and deep, displaying a strong mineral underpinning to the ripe red fruit flavors. Finishes with polished, smooth tannins and a lingering saline note. This outstanding 2005 Brunello displays an uncanny combination of seamless texture and sneaky concentration."

Sangiovese (SAHN-gee-oh-VAY-zee) Blood of Jove (literally translated) The principal grape of Chianti - in fact, the principle grape of all of Tuscany - has had its ups and downs. For a stint in the 70s and 80s, wines labeled Chianti contained cheap red wine packaged in a straw casked bottle, most popular for the candle holder it would become. But no more. Sangiovese re...Read More About Sangiovese
