K&L Notes

Just down slope from Sesta on the south face of Montalcino, this property continues to produce marvelous wine. Piancornello's trademark of ever-present ripeness of fruit is there but with an incredible focus, a spine of structure that is the defining feature for greatness at this winery. The wines are always pretty, smooth, soft and fruity but this year the structure defines the fruit it isn't just mono-flavored it stands out not just plum, there's wild cherry and a hint of floral zip is mixed in too. Spice, however, is what drives this wine: supple warmth on your palate, yes, but the multifaceted fruit flavors that are bright, fresh, and clean allow the spicy nature to stand out, bringing in earthy notes, leather, and touches of middle-eastern spice. Excellent drinking wine but will age well for 15-20 years. (Greg St. Clair, K&L Italian wine buyer)
