April 30, 200798 Fabulous aromas of cherry, fresh rose, blackberry and tar, with hints of raisin. Full-bodied, with wonderfully polished tannins. Ultrarefined. This is the greatest wine ever from this producer. Best after 2011. 750 cases made.
October 200794 The 2001 Brunello di Montalcino Vigna di PianrossoSanta Caterina d’Oro is another terrific effort from Ciacci and proprietor Paolo Bianchini. This sumptuous, deeply-colored wine is gorgeously sweet and long, with endless layers of well-defined smoke, tar, earthiness, tobacco and black cherries. It reveals superb balance as well as ripe tannins that convey an image of elegance. As appealing as it is today, this Brunello will be even better in a few years’ time. It is one of the vintage’s unqualified successes. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2019.
