About this Wine:
Ruby red verging on garnet. The bouquet is intense and complex: fruit-forward, spicy and ethereal, with hints of red berries and various spices. Warm, harmonic with pronounced and soft tannins. A full-bodied wine with a very long aftertaste. A Brunello that can be refined in the bottle for many years.

Vineyard: 11,69 hectares (29,22 acres) are named after “Pianrosso”: situated at an altitude between 240 and 360 a.s.l. with a soil of medium grain with good levels of marl, dating to the Eocene period.

Grape varietal: 100% Sangiovese

Fermentation and refinement: In stainless steel and glass concrete vats, temperature-controlled via cooling plates and jackets.

Ageing: more than 3 years in 7,5 - 30 hl Slavonian oak barrels, followed by over 12 months of bottle ageing.


Ratings & Reviews
100 Points & # 6 of Top 100 Wines of Italy 2020 - James Suckling:
"The opulence of fruit and complexity of earth, meat, mushroom and cedar is breathtaking. It’s full-bodied, deep and powerful with so much intensity and depth. Chewy and layered, it goes on for minutes. Give it even more time. Try after 2023." - (December 2020)

97 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Vigna di Pianrosso Santa Caterina d'Oro is a fine and delicate wine that cleverly delivers the intensity of the vintage but without the heaviness or the ripeness. This wine holds back, just enough, to affirm its poised balance in terms of fruit richness, texture and tannic structure. It shows symmetry throughout. Dark cherry fruit, cassis, plum, lavender and campfire ash set the tone. The mouthfeel is thickly woven and generous, more so than the more linear and focused 2016 Brunello Pianrosso (that I preferred by a tiny margin). This special Riserva represents a 11,000-bottle production." - Monica Larner (November 2020)


92 Points - Vinous Media:
"The 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Vigna Pianrosso Santa Caterina d'Oro is nuanced with dark florals, hints of black cherry, mint leaf and smoky minerals. With time, more baritone notes of tobacco come forward. It’s velvety in the mouth, showing ripe red and black fruits, licorice and sweet herbal tones. Fine tannins settle in through the finale; yet they don’t get in the way, as this tapers off to hints of dark chocolate and savory spice." - Eric Guido (November 2020)
