    Winemaker's Notes:

    The bouquet is intense and complex: fruit-forward, spicy and ethereal with notes of red berries, black cherry, sweet and warm spices and leather. Warm, harmonious and well balanced with firm tannins and a long finish.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Vigna di Pianrosso Santa Caterina d’Oro is impressive. Interestingly, it is quite a bit better than the regular Pianrosso. In this difficult vintage the decision to make a Riserva probably robbed the straight Pianrosso of some high quality fruit. Black cherries, flowers, licorice and mint are woven together in this powerful, structured Brunello while firm tannins frame the long, intense finish. I especially like the way the fruit continues to flesh out with additional time in the glass. This is a great showing and a terrific effort from Ciacci. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2026.

    The Wine Advocate

    Good full, deep red. Bitter cherry, dried flowers, menthol and smoke on the nose and in the mouth. Rich, lush and seamless, but with plenty of energy to give shape to the deep middle palate. Impressively tactile wine with substantial chewy tannins and powerful, resounding finishing flavors of menthol and minerals. Has the structure for a graceful evolution in bottle.
