Tasting Notes

Robert Parker 93

The 1997 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Madonna del Piano shows a rustic fringe (especially compared to the super-refined 1999 edition of the same wine) with some aromas of braised meat, pecorino cheese rind, black fruit, smoke and barbecue spice. It’s a wine with thicker bones, chunky parts and more abrupt movements. Having said that, its hearty, hometown-homeboy personality makes it just the kind of wine to pair with grilled meat and crunchy, oven-roasted potatoes with rosemary and olive oil. It’s definitely a wine that brings on your appetite. Drink: 2014-2022. [27/02/2014]

Vinous 93

The 1997 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Madonna del Piano is a sweet, opulent wine packed with generous, super-ripe fruit. It is hard not to admire the wine’s youthful personality. Still, warm vintages often mute varietal and vineyard character, as is the case here. Admittedly this big, brawny Madonna del Piano lacks some complexity and delineation, but the wine has also aged admirably and should drink well for another decade or so. [Antonio Galloni, 11/01/2008]

Anticipated maturity: 2008-2018
