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.
