1995 Ciacci Piccolomini "Pianrosso" Brunello di Montalcino

SKU #238037 95 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Medium-deep red. High-pitched aromas of roasted cherry, mocha, gunmetal, Cuban cigar tobacco, animal fur and oak spice; showed an explosive raspberry scent with aeration. Pure, thick and utterly suave, with very concentrated, delineated flavors of extraordinary sweetness and depth. The lush tannins are currently buried in fruit, but this highly aromatic, multidimensional Brunello has solid underlying structure. A knockout. Inner quote mark (2/2000)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Lots of ripe fruit and milk chocolate in this wine. Full-bodied and loaded with fruit and soft tannins. Very fresh, yet round and caressing. Serious new-wave Brunello. Drink now through 2008. Inner quote mark (6/2001)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 1995 Brunello di Montalcino Vigna di Pianrosso is a full-bodied, backward, seriously-endowed, muscular offering requiring an additional 3-5 years of bottle age. It is not for those who are unable to defer their gratification. The wine exhibits Asian spice, black cherry, and grilled meat aromas and flavors intermixed with dried Provencal herb and underbrush notes. Anticipated maturity: 2004-2016. Inner quote mark (8/2000)
