Pietranera Brunello di Montalcino Riserva 2010
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Brunello di Montalcino|
Aromas of espresso, underbrush, leather, dark spice, mature black-skinned fruit and a suggestion of oak lead the way. The firm palate offers dried black cherry, mocha, vanilla and star anise alongside fine-grained tannins that leave a dusty finish.
A compact frame delivers cherry, currant, tobacco and tar flavors in this rich, beefy red. In the end, the balance leans toward the tannins, and the finish is astringent. Best from 2018 through 2030. 700 cases made.
