Bright dark red.  Enticing aromas of redcurrant, iron and mocha are complicated by a strong violet topnote.  Supple red fruit and iron flavors are lifted by a peppery element and complemented by suggestions of fresh citrus fruits. Nicely plump and gently tannic Brunello with outstanding length.  This is a first-ever bottling for owner Francesco Leanza: rather than produce his usual single-vineyard Piaggione Brunello, Leanza opted to blend the sangiovese grapes from all three of his vineyards.  Leanza decided that the unusually low yield of Piaggione and the high production of the Sorgente vineyard, as well as the latter's quality (Sorgente has always been the grape source of Salicutti's Rosso di Montalcino, at least up until the 2009 vintage), was an ideal opportunity to see what the Sorgente grapes could deliver--or add--in a Brunello blend.  Much as his friends Jan Erbach and Caroline Pobizer are doing at Pian dell'Orino, Leanza is closely evaluating his single vineyards of sangiovese in an effort to one day produce mainly vineyard-designated Brunellos, each with a different story to tell.
