The outstanding 2016 vintage in Montalcino also yielded very ripe grapes at the more traditionally producing Pietroso winery, which resulted in an unusually rich Brunello that hides the tannins that are present. The wine was stored for 36 months in large wooden barrels made of Slavonian oak, which represent the traditional way of aging in Montalcino.

Falstaff magazine awarded 93/100 points for this great wine, while Intravino was even worth 96/100, both for the 2015 vintage. Oddly enough, we haven't found any awards for the even superior 2016 vintage.
