This is very ripe, verging on raisin. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins and a lot of dried fruits on the palate, like fruitcake. Slightly overdone, but still likeable for its character and richness. Cabernet Sauvignon. Best after 2011. 850 cases made. –JS

The 2006 Pietradonice (Cabernet Sauvignon) explodes from the glass with the essence of blackberry jam, French oak, grilled herbs and cassis. This super-ripe, opulent wine offers tons of elegance and finesse in a full-bodied style. The tannins are firm but ripe, and beautifully balanced by the wine’s radiant, warm fruit. This is a gem from proprietor Giacomo Neri. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2026.

Wine maker notes
A wine born from our cabernet sauvignon in the vineyards south of Montalcino where a combination of careful farming practices, the right ratio of vines, the unique microclimate and soil components have resulted in a wine of exceptional analytical values. It stands as an interpretation of this variety in Montalcino, the fruit of a vineyard project eager to confront itself with an ”international” grape variety. A profound red wine, with a complex, a superb aromatic chiaroscuro the uniqueness of the territory in its richness of flavours, its fulsome tannins perfectly melded in the smooth persistent length of its taste. Particularly elegant and with great fineness, it is the fruit of a high- level vintage that led to the harvest of grapes with the perfect level of ripeness.
