Colour is ruby red verging on garnet. The bouquet is intense and complex: fruit-forward, spicy and ethereal, with hints of red berries and various spices. Warm, harmonic with pronounced and soft tannins. A full- bodied wine with a very long aftertaste. A Brunello that can be refined in the bottle for many years. Open an hour before pouring and serve at 18°C (64,4° F) in large crystal glasses. Bottles should be kept in a horizontal position, far from light sources and temperature. Excellent with roasted and game meat. Enjoyable with mature cheeses or as a meditation wine.

Outer quote mark The opulence of fruit and complexity of earth, meat, mushroom and cedar is breathtaking. It's full-bodied, deep and powerful with so much intensity and depth. Chewy and layered, it goes on for minutes. Give it even more time. Inner quote mark (10/2020)

The 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Vigna Pianrosso Santa Caterina d'Oro is nuanced with dark florals, hints of black cherry, mint leaf and smoky minerals. With time, more baritone notes of tobacco come forward. It's velvety in the mouth, showing ripe red and black fruits, licorice and sweet herbal tones. Fine tannins settle in through the finale; yet they don't get in the way, as this tapers off to hints of dark chocolate and savory spice.
