Ruby red verging on garnet. The bouquet is intense and complex: fruit-forward, spicy and ethereal, with hints of red berries and various spices. Warm, harmonic with pronounced and soft tannins. A full- bodied wine with a very long aftertaste. A Brunello that can be refined in the bottle for many years. Open an hour before pouring and serve at glass concrete vats, temperature-controlled via cooling 18°C (64,4° F) in large crystal glasses. Bottles should be plates and jackets. kept in a horizontal position, far from light sources and protected from both extremes and changes in temperature. Excellent with roasted and game meat. Enjoyable with mature cheeses or as a meditation wine.

There's a bright edge to this red, harnessing the cherry, strawberry, rosehip, mineral and tobacco flavors that build on the palate to a long finish. Displays terrific energy and balance, with an aftertaste that echoes both fruit and savory elements. Best from 2024 through 2050. 833 cases made, 450 cases imported.

The 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Vigna Pianrosso Santa Caterina d'Oro is nuanced with dark florals, hints of black cherry, mint leaf and smoky minerals. With time, more baritone notes of tobacco come forward. It's velvety in the mouth, showing ripe red and black fruits, licorice and sweet herbal tones. Fine tannins settle in through the finale; yet they don't get in the way, as this tapers off to hints of dark chocolate and savory spice.
