The 2007 Pietranera Brunello di Montalcino Riserva offers aromas of blackberries, fresh mushroom, spices and even some pretty floral and fresh mineral notes coming through with some air. It shows impeccable balance, boasting a full body with gorgeous velvety tannins and a soft caressing mouthfeel. The finish is ultra-silky with blackberry and spices making an encore.
