96 points "96 points James Suckling Complex aromas of red fruits, flowers and fresh mushrooms follow through to a full body, with ultra-fine tannins and intense fruit and bright acidity. Goes on for a long, long time. So juicy and fruity. Hints of bitter lemon rind. (1/ 2012) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate The 2007 Brunello di Montalcino Pianrosso is fresher, more floral and more delineated than the straight Brunello bottling. There is plenty of Ciacci depth and muscle in the glass. Layers of dark red fruit, crushed flowers, licorice and spices wrap around the intense, deep finish. This is a huge wine with tons of 2007 Castelnuovo character, but also with enough freshness to balance out the wine’s more extroverted leanings. (4/ 2012) 92 points Wine Spectator A mix of cherry, strawberry, earth, iron and dried beef aromas and flavors make this complex in a lighter style. Balanced between the fruit, moderate acidity and tannins. Very elegant. (6/ 2012) 91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar Dark bright red. Black cherry, dark raspberry, licorice and graphite on the nose. Rich, vinous and deep, with dark cherry fruit complicated and lifted by flowers and licorice. Chewy and large-scaled but smooth and not heavy. Finishes with fine-grained tannins and lingering notes of licorice, dark chocolate, licorice and smoky minerality. In a distinctly dark style.
