Pietranera Brunello di Montalcino is an intense ruby-red, with a tendency toward garnet-red with aging.
The nose is round, intense and well-balanced, with a long finish. On the palate, the wine is complex, elegant, full-bodied, velvety.
Opens with dark concentration and ripe berry fruit with layers of plum, blackberry, dark chocolate, high- quality pipe tobacco, cherry liqueur, cola and underbrush. It offers a wonderful 360-degree portrait of Sangiovese Grosso. Tight structure, integration and loads of fruity intensity. Beautiful. Drink after 2018.
Distinctive iron, balsamic and tobacco notes accent the core of cherry in this intense red, which is firmly structured, with moderate acidity. The finish evokes underbrush and tea. Best from 2014 through 2023.
A wine that is slightly jammy, but shows flower and light herb character too. Full body, chewy tannins and a long finish. Better in 2014.
Agricola Centolani is a world-famous wine estate located in the heart of Montalcino, one of the most evocative villages in legendary Tuscany. Brunello di Montalcino, one of the world’s top wines, grows here in the Siena area, amid Valle d'Arbia's stark landscape and Valle d'Orcia's wild, sunny stretches. The Peluso Centolani family owns the homonymous company and possesses two major wine estates in Montalcino: Tenuta Friggiali, with cellars and offices, and Tenuta Pietranera, whose vineyards, olive groves, arable land and woods cover approximately 200 hectares.
