"Here's a Brunello with a determined focus on sophistication and elegance. The wine is smooth and pristine and delivers delicate nuances of wild berry, graphite, smoke and Indian spice. The overall approach here is one that fully embraces Brunello tradition: the wine offers power and intensity but not in an exaggerated manner. "
"Has some earthy character, with raspberry and blackberry aromas. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a long finish. A bit tight now, but pretty, cheery and structured. Best after 2009."
"The 2004 Brunello di Montalcino from Pietranera is a sweeping, rich Brunello loaded with black cherries, violets, spices, new leather and French oak. Made in a big, powerful style, the wine possesses notable vibrancy and detail, along with more than enough fruit to balance the firm tannins. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2021."
