Wine Spectator   There's fine depth to the cherry, plum and licorice aromas and flavors in this supple red, which is concentrated, yet balanced and refined, with the dusty tannins asserting themselves on the finish for now. Very complex and long. Best from 2013 through 2027. 120 cases imported. Bruce Sanderson
Wine Advocate   The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino Piaggione is superb. Smoke, tar, wild cherries, underbrush and licorice are some of the notes that emerge from this expansive, textured Brunello. In 2006 the Piaggione shows that extra level of richness and depth that can be elusive in this bottling. The explosive, building finish leaves a lasting impression. Today the wine is young and not fully composed, but it will be sublime in another few years. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2026. Antonio Galloni
