Ciacci Piccolomini d’Aragona Brunello Riserva “Santa Caterina D’Oro” (OWC) 2016

Druerne der anvendes til denne Riserva hentes fra Piccolominis 11,69 ha på marken Pianrosso og vinen repræsenterer ikke blot det ypperste ejendommen formår, men tillige noget af det mest storslåede området formår. Den aromatiske profil samler sig til stor skønhed med balsamiske og æteriske noter: intens, storladen og med et klassisk udtryk, der knytter an til traditionen, idet Piccolomini ikke anvender nye små franske fade. I munden er der denne forunderlige balance mellem det frodige, det strenge og det luksuriøse, der indfanger smageren i en veritabel tryllekreds. Vinen fremstilles udelukkende i de bedste år.

Glorious aromas of flowers, nutmeg, dark berries, earth and black cherries follow through to a full body with ultra-fine tannins that are long and extremely polished. They go on for minutes. Reserved and shy still, due to its excellence. Give this four or five years to come around.

97+ point. The Ciacci Piccolomini d'Aragona 2016 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Vigna di Pianrosso Santa Caterina d'Oro is gorgeous, full stop. It shows an incredible level of Sangiovese purity and sharpness, and you taste the grape as if you were eating berries straight out of the vineyard. On top of that healthy and bright primary material, the wine layers on elegant aromas of spice, ferrous earth, balsam herb and red rose potpourri. The aromas meet with seamless integration and segue to ongoing depth and complexity offered to the palate. This Riserva is rather delicate in terms of mouthfeel; however, it is powerful and long, with high alcohol, polished tannins and a silky texture. A hint of sweet cherry mixed with menthol freshness pulls it together at the end.

Dark yet wonderfully perfumed, the 2016 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Vigna di Pianrosso Santa Caterina d'Oro blossoms in the glass to present a bouquet of dried strawberries and roses complemented by hints of blood orange and clove. It shows the power and grace of a well-muscled dancer as a dense wave of ripe red and black fruits rushes across the palate, lifted by bright acidity, while leaving a mix of saline-minerals and grippy tannins toward the close. Though structured for the long haul, the 2016 maintains unexpected vibrancy, finishing with hints of plum and almond. This is simply stunning.
