2004 Brunello di Montalcino, Piaggione, Podere Salicutti


$100.00 per Bottle


3 Bottles




"The 2004 Brunello di Montalcino Piaggione possesses striking depth, transparency and weightlessness as it opens up in the glass. This deeply-scented, layered Brunello offers superb pedigree and class in its ripe red cherries, wild herbs, tobacco, spices and licorice, with a powerful blast of melted road tar that provides the final exclamation point. A firm, structured wine, the profound 2004 Piaggione desperately needs some bottle age, but readers will have a hard time finding a wine with this much sheer class and pedigree. The Piaggione spent two years in medium-size French oak barrels and was neither fined nor filtered prior to bottling. This is a wonderful effort." Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com

"Aromas of plums and dried mushrooms follow through to a full body, with soft and silky tannins, ripe plum character and a long finish. A little tight still. Best from 2010 through 2014. 665 cases made." Wine Spectator

"Medium bright red with a palish rim. Lively aromas of redcurrant, rose petal and minerals. Graceful and silky, with a restrained sweetness and lovely energy and definition to its red fruit and floral flavors. Juicy and light on its feet, finishing with firm tannins and a perfumed note of blood orange." Stephen Tanzer, Vinous.com
