Tasting Notes
Tasting Notes

"Pietroso's 2010 Brunello di Montalcino opens to smoky tones of ash and brimstone followed by dried cherry and plum. The alcohol is listed at 14% and you feel the power immediately. Within a few minutes in the glass, it begins to offers more fruit tones although they are definitely on the dry side, including prune, fig and cassis. The medium-bodied mouthfeel offers compact structure and polished tannins. This is a good effort but not an overwhelming one." Monica Larner

Sweetness Explained
Sweetness Explained

Sweetness

All our wines are given a Sweetness Indicator from 1 to 5, with 1 being the driest and 5 being the sweetest.
This can be found for every wine under the Wine Details tab. 

Most red wines are dry and therefore are indicated with a 1. The sweetness becomes more relevant with white wines, sparkling wines and pudding/dessert wines such as Sauternes and Tokaji.
