Ruby red tending toward garnet. Intense and complex aromas. Sensations of ripe red berry fruit are completed with various spicy notes; the taste is warm, harmonious with pronounced tannins; a full-bodied wine with a long taste-olfactory persistence that can still evolve with a long aging in the bottle. Ideal with roasted or stewed game and with first courses with seasoning based on the same meats. Also excellent with aged cheeses.

Outer quote mark Lots going on here with black plums, ripe cherries, cedar, smoke and cocoa on the nose. Ash, chocolate, crushed walnuts and some praline. Mushrooms. This has firm, ripe tannins and a full body. Flavorful and juicy finish. Very structured. Inner quote mark (10/2020)

Dark, rich and deeply alluring, the 2016 Brunello di Montalcino Pianrosso boasts a display of ripe black fruits encased in an air of crushed stone, sage and exotic spice. While velvety and almost creamy in texture, it finds harmony through juicy acids and a mix of ripe black cherry and plums. Hints of licorice and baker's chocolate balance the Pianrosso's salty minerality and fine-grained tannins through the long and dramatic finale. There's beautiful symmetry here for a wine with such power. Place this in the cellar for ten years or more; but don't make the mistake of not checking in from time to time, because I expect the 2016 to enjoy a long and open drinking window.
