Winemaker Notes

Intense ruby red with a garnet hue. The nose opens to notes of red and black berries, spices and herbs. The palate is full-bodied and fruity, with a consistent, dense and perfectly balanced tannin, followed by balsamic notes and a long, harmonious and gradual finish.

JS 95
James Suckling
There’s a cascade of dried florals here, ranging from rose petals to lilacs; the glazed strawberries and cherries are equally intense. So much power and ripeness to the full-bodied palate, but there’s a savory, stony flavor and texture that permeates the whole package. Long on the finish. Drink from 2024.
V 93
Vinous
Moderately saturated red. Ripe nose of cherry, orange blossom, licorice and sweet spices. Smooth and glyceral, with ripe flavors of red cherry nectar and plum enlivened by balsamic oils and earth tones. Closes long and round. In my experience, Piancornello’s wines age very well.

Piancornello Piancornello at Sunset Winery Image

The estate vineyard at Piancornello was bought by the Pieri Family in 1950. The fruit was sold to other Montalcino producers until they began making their own wine starting with the 1990 vintage. Silvana Pieri has since passed down the estate to her son Claudio (who has been and continues to be the winemaker) and his wife, Silvia.

Piancornello takes its name from the hamlet just South of Montalcino where the winery is located. Because of the warm climate and unique, rocky/mineral-rich soils, this is considered one of the finest areas of Brunello. The vineyards are located on moderately sloped hills with southern exposures. The clones at Piancornello were chosen carefully in order to have low yields and looser bunches. Additionally, a modern, temperature & humidity-controlled winemaking facility has been built in front of the old cellar, allowing for an even greater attention to detail and quality in winemaking.

Though the estate has been farming organically for many years, it has recently made plans to become certified. Beginning with the 2013 vintage, the estate in Montecucco (Podere del Visciolo) will be Certified Organic, while the main estate plans to finalize its organic certification with the 2015 vintage.
