Salicutti is a boutique producer of Brunello. They make less than 700 cases of this wine. The grapes are all sourced from the small 5 acre Piagionne estate that is farmed organically, free of chemicals. International Wine Cellar scored this 91 and The Wine Advocate rated it 92 points saying "The 2005 Brunello di Montalcino Piaggione is a sensual wine endowed with layers of ripe fruit that come to life in the glass. There is a combination of richness and transparency that is alluring. A second bottle was quite a bit more firm, suggesting the wine will need a few more years in the cellar for some of the tannins to soften. This is one of the more imposing, deep wines of the vintage, and it will require patience. That said, I tasted three bottles of the 2005 Piaggione, and there appears to be a degree of bottle variation. Some bottles have been sweet, open and delicate, while others have been more stern. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2025."
