The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino Pietranera is a beautiful mid-weight wine graced with exquisite aromatics well-articulated fruit and a long polished finish. This remains a medium-bodied focused style of Brunello that shows the more feminine side of Sangiovese. Saline notes frame the focused energetic finish. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024. -AG

Black cherry blackberry and violet flavors are matched to a dense profile. Firm and fresh with grainy tannins carrying the finish. There's ample sweet fruit so be patient. Best from 2014 through 2028. 4000 cases made. -BS

Structured and dense this bold Brunello offers big color density and extraction. On the nose it is characterized by elegant oak tones of vanilla and spice that are married to bright cherry after tones. M.L.

Sexy aromas of red cherry rose petal and spices reminded me a bit of a Chambolle. A juicy lithe midweight with very firm acidity giving focus to the pretty high-pitched flavors of black raspberry and candied violet. Still youthfully tight but this stylish wine finishes with suave tannins.

Dark berries such as mulberries and ripe strawberries on the nose. Full body with velvety tannins and a fruity clean finish. Delicate and flavorful. Best after two to three years.

Lovely aromas of dark cherry black tea leaf violet spice and just a hint of wild herbs reveal themselves. On the palate the wine shows well-integrated tannins and a supple mouthfeel supported by firm structure. Very well-balanced overall this offers the hallmarks of a great Brunello without the big price tag. Though this should continue to improve for at least another 5-8 years there's no reason not to drink this straight away.
