tannic structure frames the palate with hints of coffee, tobacco and chocolate lingering on the finish.
Concentrated, intense, and persistent. This is an artisanal Brunello, and an authentic gem from
"The 2004 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Piaggione is an understated, classy wine. Dried cherries, flowers and spices are framed by silky tannins in an elegant, layered style. Sweet tobacco, anise, fennel and herbs add complexity on the round, supple close. I am not sure the Riserva is worth the premium in 2004, but it is undoubtedly quite pretty.

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.
