Piccini Brunello di Montalcino Villa Al Cortile Riserva 2004
Our story begins in 1882 with Angiolo Piccini, from a small family enterprise of only 7ha. Guided only by passion for winemaking, from him the next generations inherited the most important rule in Piccini winemaking, Now we have 4 estates and we are one of the most recognized brands of Tuscan wine in the world.
First open, lots of earth on the nose and some funk. With time and air, a chalky, cocoa powder nose of rich cherry fruit emerges. Dark chocolate and leather notes give way to floral tones. On the palate, it's rich and well structured. Dark cherry fruit intermingled with toasty cocoa and charred oak. Some hints of coffee as well. It retains great acidity and is very food friendly. Dry, but with round tannins. Tasty wine! 90 pts.
