Piancornello, 2013 Piancornello Brunello di Montalcino

93
"The 2013 Brunello di Montalcino offers a plump and cherry-rich bouquet that is youthful and vibrant at this young stage. You really get a sense of the tonic fruit that is achieved in this cooler vintage. Wild cherry aromas segue to violets, roses and medicinal herbs. You'll love all that special detailing. Yet the wine also shows a thick and firm texture that would benefit from another 3-5 years of cellar aging."
