Ciacci Piccolomini Brunello di Montalcino Pianrosso 2012
JS97: "This is all about finesse and beauty with such great length and polish. It literally melts in your mouth. Full-bodied yet agile and vivid. So many undertones of cedar, berries, cream and light toffee. Fabulous. Contender for the wine of the vintage."
