Podere Del Visciolo Brunello di Montalcino (Piancornello) 2013
YOU. DO. YOU. We’ll do US -- and that means Brunello, baby! A Last bottle World Exclusive (has a nice ring to it), rockin’ sweet Brunello deal (over 50% OFF!)! We sold the 2012 of this pretty-much-totally-exclusive-to-us wine (read on below, but don’t wait too long…) to straight-up RAVES from you -- this ‘13 is even better!! BRUNELLO! Yell it from the treetops!
Crank up whatever jam gets your blood racing (Sabotage, anyone?), because it's ALL THAT --- classy, succulent Tuscan magik-juice from a fine vintage! Podere Del Visciolo is a true family-run operation, too, and they are incredibly lucky to get some of their best grapes for this wine from the coveted Montosoli area north of the town of Montalcino. Serious real estate.
2013 is SO, so good. How good? That NOSE!! AHHH! It enraptures us immediately. Elegant, but SOARING with smoky, complex red/blue fruit and a whiff of citrus, violets and deep, earthy spices…mmmmm, baby! Grabs your mouth right away with freshness and raciness, then the deeper notes kick in on an oh-so satisfying finish. The best!! We bring in as much as we can, but it will sell out!! Brunello!!
Piancornello is a winery born from strong ties with the land and the hard work of four generations, in a territory where Brunello, the village of Montalcino and a centuries-old history blend together.

About The Producer
"In 1950, my great grandfather Zefiro fell in love with Montalcino and acquired the property of Piancornello, which consisted of a rural house dating back to the 1700s and the land surrounding it, and started to plant the first Brunello vineyards. In the years that followed, great part of the family left the estate, but my great grandparents and my parents, Alfeo and Silvana, continued to cultivate it: living on their own land was, for them, an important value. Today, that tradition continues to live through my wife, my daughters and myself. Piancornello is located in the zone of Sesta, between Sant’ Angelo in Colle and Castenuovo dell’Abate, nestled on a plateau facing Val d’Orcia and Mount Amiata on the horizon; it covers a surface of around 20 hectares in an area characterised by a Mediterranean microclimate and steep hills rich in rocks and stones. Such favourable conditions allow organic agriculture and the production of a genuine, elegant and generous Brunello di Montalcino that is inextricably bound to the territory where it is produced."
