Winemaker's Notes

The Piancornello Brunello di Montalcino shows notes of raspberry and vanilla, with lots of toasty oak. It has a medium body and finish, with soft, silky tannins. Drink now or later, it just gets better and better!

Critical Acclaim

"The 2009 Brunello di Montalcino sees fruit sourced from the thicker soils of the Abbazia Sant’Antimo area in the southern part of the appellation. This is a very compelling wine. What I liked most about it is its frankness and its simple lines – it’s a wine that paints in primary colors. Decidedly uncomplicated, it spells out clean aromas of bold cherry, dark spice, smoky mineral and sweet almond. The delivery is impeccable and pristine in the mouth as well where smooth tannins and a bright spot of acidity form this Brunello’s backbone."

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...
