2016 Piancornello, Brunello di Montalcino (RT95+) The recently released 2016 Brunello is a power packed, gorgeously crafted, masterpiece of winemaking. Translucent medium ruby, the aromatics are compact and brooding with notes of black cherry, red currants, hints of saddle leather, spice, dried herbs and crushed stones. The palate shows regal balance with airy fruit, shaping mineral-acid thrust, and sweet, sultry tannins. Already drinking well, but the best is yet to come for this magnificent wine. An additional 5-10 years of cellaring should bring it to early peak drinking allowing the magnificence of the vintage and impressive attention to detail to shine. Drink now (with plenty of air)-2040+
