Piancornello’s Brunello seems to get more popular with each vintage. One sip and it’s easy to see why! This is a firm, linear red that’s layered, chewy and intense. It tastes like it should be a cellar treasure to keep hidden from company, but the price makes it easy to keep a few on hand to share. Cherry, plum, chocolate and bark all weave together among fine tannins. Decant now if you can’t keep your hands off it, but a couple of years in a cool cellar will add even more depth.
