Product Description

The 2012 Piancornello Brunello di Montalcino offers oak-driven aromas of toast, wood shop, vanilla, and a hint of underbrush. The rich palate delivers cherries marinated in spirits, toasted oak, espresso, pipe tobacco, vanilla, and a confectionary note alongside bracing wood tannins. A licorice note marks the finish.

Varietal Composition: 100 percent Sangiovese
Appellation: Brunello di Montalcino DOCG
Aging: 12 months in tonneaux and wooden casks, followed by 24 months in larger 40 hl wooden casks, roughly 30 percent new oak

92 Points - Wine Advocate
"Darkly saturated and rich in personality, the 2012 Brunello di Montalcino offers an immediate and approachable expression of the grape. Your palate yearns for succulent bistecca alla fiorentina with roasted potatoes on the side—all of it drenched in olive oil. That's because the wine is so upfront and soft even at this young stage in its evolution. This Brunello is soft in texture and mouthfeel, yet it offers loads of chewy fruit and enough bright acidity to pair with whatever you have on the menu tonight." -ML, 2/28/17

90 Points - Wine Enthusiast
"Aromas of sun-baked soil, stalky underbrush, crushed herb and toast lead the nose while the ripe full-bodied palate offers fleshy black-skinned berry, coffee and oak-driven spice. Rounded tannins support the juicy fruit. Drink 2018–2024." -KO, 5/1/17
