The 2016 Brunello di Montalcino Piaggione pulls you deeper and deeper into the glass with an alluring display of floral-tinged wild berries, balsamic spices and sweet pipe tobacco. For all of the intensity on the nose, the palate is incredibly pure and energetic, offering notes of plum and currants cascading across a core of bright acidity. This is a mix of opulent pleasure and tension, tapering off to a nuanced coating of tannins and a mix of blue and purple-tinged inner florals. There is much more balance here than I recall, as the Piaggione is coming along beautifully in the bottle. (Eric Guido, Vinous, December 2021)
