I believe I Pentri is determined to make me a lifelong fan of Piedirosso. Here In the 2016 Piedirosso Kerres I find a dark, moody, and intense display, leading off with black raspberry and crushed cherry encased in an air of smoky minerals and earth tones, with savory herbs and a hint of animal musk. It floods the palate with silky textures, contrasted by a wave of tart red and black fruits, yet cool and poised, as brisk acids add energy, and savory spices seem to saturate all that they touch. The finish is long, structured, and a bit tart, showing its youthful state, with a coating of concentrated fruits that slowly fade to reveal dark florals and a pinch of tannin. The balance in the 2016 Kerres is remarkable, promising a long and enjoyable evolution in the cellar, but don’t make the mistake of not trying one today.
