Winemaker's Notes

Intense garnet color with a complete balsamic, spiced and fruity nose. Strong tannic structure with an ample palate. Hints of chocolate and coffee on the finish. Intense and persistent. Recommended with grilled meat and game. Excellent with aged cheeses.

Critical Acclaim

"Shows fine depth, from the floral and berry aromas to the sweet cherry and raspberry flavors. Detailed and elegant, with accents of mineral, tobacco and underbrush adding complexity. Features a terrific finish, with a fruit and mineral aftertaste. Best from 2014 through 2025. 670 cases made."
95 Points

"Intense aromas of mushrooms, plums, meat and spices follow though to a full body, with velvety tannins and a coffee, meat and ripe fruit aftertaste. Made from organically grown grapes. Very enjoyable now but will improve years ahead. "
93 Points

"The 2007 Brunello di Montalcino Piaggione needs a lot of air for the bouquet to find its focus. Silky tannins frame sweet red berries, flowers and licorice in this mid-weight Brunello. The purity of the fruit is striking, but the aromatics aren't perfectly clean. This is an underachieving effort from one of Montalcino's top properties. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025"

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...
