Agostina Pieri has crafted a delicious wine. The 2012 Brunello di Montalcino is a dark and deeply perfumed expression of Sangiovese. The wine opens to a much deeper and blacker ruby hue than compared to past years and the bouquet is polished and smoothly textured. The alcohol is high at 15.5% but that power and intensity is nicely wrapped within the wine's supple richness. This is a delicious Brunello at a quasi-affordable price tag ! 2017-2028. 95/100.
