Winemaker 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

WS 98
Wine Spectator

lous aromas of cherry, fresh rose, blackberry and tar, with hints of raisin. Full-bodied, with wonderfully polished tannins. Ultrarefined. This is the greatest wine ever from this producer.

RP 94
The Wine Advocate

The 2001 Brunello di Montalcino Vigna di PianrossoSanta Caterina d'Oro is another terrific effort from Ciacci and proprietor Paolo Bianchini. This sumptuous, deeply-colored wine is gorgeously sweet and long, with endless layers of well-defined smoke, tar, earthiness, tobacco and black cherries. It reveals superb balance as well as ripe tannins that convey an image of elegance. As appealing as it is today, this Brunello will be even better in a few years' time. It is one of the vintage’s unqualified successes.
