Piancornello, 2016 Piancornello Rosso di Montalcino

90+
"Piancornello does a great job with its lower-end Rosso. Indeed, the 2016 Rosso di Montalcino makes a great impression in the glass, thanks to its beautifully dark ruby color. The bouquet offers black cherry, spice, tar and licorice. The mouthfeel is simple and crisp. It makes the perfect pairing partner to wood-fired pizza with extra mozzarella cheese melted on top."

WINE
2016 Piancornello Rosso di Montalcino
Piancornello

The Piancornello Rosso di Montalcino is 100% Sangiovese. This wine is always a bit more aggressive and masculine than the Sant’Antimo, with slightly more tannic grip and a bit less acidity. As with all of Piancornello's wines, this wine shows off the perfect use of oak. Since there are no more barriques at the estate, the wine is aged in tonneaux (25% new) for 10 months and then bottled.
