Other Reviews....
The Salicutti 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Piaggione is a mid-weight red wine with a deep and lasting aromatic impact. The wine offers very vertical or lifted aromas of dried fruit, cedar wood, tilled earth, cigar, cola and medicinal herb. It also shows a lot of balsamic character, and this is something I often recognize in warm-vintage Brunello, while it offers less primary fruit. The character here is ethereal and fragrant, shedding any monolithic tones you might expect of a wine of this depth and persistence. I would recommend a medium-term drinking window so that you catch the fruit before it fades.

Monica Larner - Wine Advocate (Oct 2020)

Fully saturated red. Captivating aromas of red cherry, strawberry nectar, roses, violet and sweet spices. Dense, juicy and extremely well-balanced, with vibrant flavors of red fruit, spices and minerals complicated by notes of sweet pipe tobacco and coffee. The finish is long, precise and very pure. One of the year’s best Brunellos.

Ian D'Agata - Vinous

Bright cherry and juniper flavors are the main flavor themes, augmented by strawberry, wild thyme, stone and loam notes. Taut, elegant and well-structured, balanced and long. The finish reveals this wine's potential. Best from 2023 through 2045.
