Review:
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. Try after 2023.

Review:
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.
