2012 PIANCORNELLO BRUNELLO DI MONTALCINO

$50.00 $44.99 $44.99

Cutting across the palate with unbridled determination, and unfurling an array of deeply etched piquancies of Morello cherries, crushed chamomile, blue violets, leather and wild lavender, Picancornello’s 2012 Brunello di Montalcino is a textbook example of this classic varietal.   Antonio Galloni alerts readers that Piancornello is “One of my favorite under the radar estates in Montalcino,” and with no shortage of confidence, the 2012 has already earned a stellar 92 point review from Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate.

The Pieri family purchased the Estate at Piancornello in 1950 and sold fruit to neighboring wineries for four decades before producing their first vintage in 1991.  The name Pian refers to the vineyards location on the hamlet of rocky, volcanic soils, which are perfect for growing world class Sangiovese.  A wonderful expression of this region, the 2012 is impeccably layered, rendering a long succession of floral infused dried cherries, plum cake, black truffle and incense.   I highly recommend securing a case of this fantastic Brunello.

2012 PIANCORNELLO BRUNELLO DI MONTALCINO

 

From Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate, “Darkly saturated and rich in personality, the 2012 Brunello di Montalcino offers an immediate and approachable expression of the grape. Your palate yearns for succulent bistecca alla fiorentina with roasted potatoes on the side—all of it drenched in olive oil. That’s because the wine is so upfront and soft even at this young stage in its evolution. This Brunello is soft in texture and mouthfeel, yet it offers loads of chewy fruit and enough bright acidity to pair with whatever you have on the menu tonight.” 92 Points
