Winemaker's Notes:

The color is an intense ruby-red, with a tendency to turn garnet-red after some aging.

The Perfume is round, intense and well-balanced, with a long finish. On the palate, the wine is complex, elegant, full-bodied, velvety.

My Notes:

About Pietranera:

Agricola Centolani is a world-famous wine estate located in the heart of Montalcino, one of the most evocative villages in legendary Tuscany. Brunello di Montalcino, one of the world’s top wines, grows here in the Siena area, amid Valle d'Arbia's stark landscape and Valle d'Orcia's wild, sunny stretches. The Peluso Centolani family owns the homonymous company and possesses two major wine estates in Montalcino: Tenuta Friggiali, with cellars and offices, and Tenuta Pietranera, whose vineyards, olive groves, arable land and woods cover approximately 200 hectares.
