Winemaker's Notes

Garnet in color, with scents of ripe red fruit (plums), tobacco, balsamic notes. Intense. On the palate, it is full, warm and well-structured, with flavors of red fruits (plums, cherries), and a hint of mint. Elegant and long lasting.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2004 Brunello di Montalcino Piaggione possesses striking depth, transparency and weightlessness as it opens up in the glass. This deeply-scented, layered Brunello offers superb pedigree and class in its ripe red cherries, wild herbs, tobacco, spices and licorice, with a powerful blast of melted road tar that provides the final exclamation point. A firm, structured wine, the profound 2004 Piaggione desperately needs some bottle age, but readers will have a hard time finding a wine with this much sheer class and pedigree. The Piaggione spent two years in medium-size French oak barrels and was neither fined nor filtered prior to bottling. This is a wonderful effort. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024."
95 Points

"Aromas of plums and dried mushrooms follow through to a full body, with soft and silky tannins, ripe plum character and a long finish. A little tight still. Best from 2010 through 2014. 665 cases made. "
91 Points

"Medium bright red with a palish rim. Lively aromas of redcurrant, rose petal and minerals. Graceful and silky, with a restrained sweetness and lovely energy and definition to its red fruit and floral flavors. Juicy and light on its feet, finishing with firm tannins and a perfumed note of blood orange."

Learn About Sangiovese

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...
