Wine EnthusiastYou'll find ripe plum, forest floor, exotic spice, menthol and espresso aromas in this structured red. The palate is bright and linear with youthful tension, delivering red cherry, strawberry, white pepper and anise notes set against compact, fine-grained tannins. Drink 2020-2030.

Wine AdvocateThe Pietroso 2012 Brunello di Montalcino is an elegant and graceful expression. The wine ages in oak for three years and has emerged after that long and careful process with a soft and streamlined disposition. The bouquet opens to flirtatious tones of dried lavender, rose petal and wild forest berry. Light tones of rosemary and cola appear at the back and there is good mineral definition as well. The wine performs very nicely overall, despite moderate intensity and mild persistence. It should flesh out further with a few more years of bottle aging.
