Today, Filippo tastes the Brunello di Montalcino 2016 from the Pietroso Wine Estate.
One of the Montalcino area’s more recent wine estates, Pietroso has been excelling at producing high-quality Brunello di Montalcino wines since their inception in the 1970s. A wine estate with family roots running towards a deep passion for the Montalcino lands, the Pignattai family’s fervor and devotion to their lands can be felt in the very wines they produce.
With a relatively small annual production focusing on the creation of quality wines rather than quantity wines, the Pignattai family’s mission is one we can easily get behind. Ruby-red and entrancing, the Brunello 2016 vintage expresses a sensation of innate elegance the Pietroso Brunello wines typically feature.
Thanks to the typical Montalcino micro-climates, the Pietroso wine estate has vineyard parcels each with individual climatic characteristics that allow the Pietroso grapes to produce well-balanced, reliably wonderful wines that are enjoyable at any meal in your day!
Featuring hand-processing for the most delicate moments of the Brunello wine production, classic Slavonian aging, and a dedication to making the absolute most of their lands, the Pignattai family, assisted by enologist Alessandro Dondi, are today producing a classic Brunello di Montalcino wine selection, particularly this 2015 Brunello vintage, that is one of the more enjoyable vintages in the Montalcino market.
