The Ciacci Piccolomini d'Aragona 2016 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Vigna di Pianrosso Santa Caterina d'Oro is gorgeous, full stop. It shows incredible Sangiovese purity and sharpness, and you taste the grape as if you are eating berries straight out of the vineyard. 

On top of that healthy and bright primary material, the wine layers on elegant aromas of spice, ferrous earth, balsam herb, and red rose potpourri. The aromas meet with seamless integration and segue to ongoing depth and complexity offered to the palate. 

This Riserva is somewhat delicate in terms of mouthfeel; however, it is powerful and long, with high alcohol, polished tannins and a silky texture. A hint of sweet cherry mixed with menthol freshness pulls it together. - The Wine Advocate
