Piancornello 2017 Brunello di Montalcino 750ml
The 2017 Brunello di Montalcino is buoyant and lifted with lots of bright cherry and raspberry fruit that pops from the glass. Despite the heat and the drought of the growing season, this wine produces grace and softness with ethereal layers of balsam herb, cola and dried rose potpourri. The finish is dry, tight and firm but also silky and long. This is a terrific effort from Piancornello.
