Brunello di Montalcino Piancornello 2006

Member Review by jtryka:

This wine has been in the bottle for considerably longer than 4 months, as most Brunellos really start coming into their own when they hit about 10 years old, so this one is just about to hit its stride. The color on this wine is a rich garnet hue, certainly a bit lighter than your typical Napa Cab. The nose has quite a bit of herbs, some classic spice, anise, and ripe red fruit with a hint of sweetness. The taste was a bit tart up front but quickly transitioned into some rich ripe fruit and even a bit of prune midpalate which gave way to some interesting chocolate notes. The tannins are somewhat subdued providing for a long, silky smooth finish that left me wanting another sip every time!
