    The vintage ripeness, seen here with blackberry syrup and cherry liqueur, definitely comes through in this 2017 Brunello di Montalcino from Agostina Pieri. So does the high alcohol content, measured at 15.5% in this bottle. The wine does show good acidity to balance the effects, but ultimately this Sangiovese is a bit overpowering. Like other wines from 2017, I would suggest a near-term drinking window.
