Dried red cherries and orange peel and cloves in this brunello. Pian delle Vigne has adopted the philosophy of aging in large casks that preserve the exceptional integrity of the Sangiovese berry and impart the characteristic vibrant elegance of Brunello to the wine. Brunello Pian delle Vigne is an extraordinary expression with great finesse.
The Pian Delle Vigne estate is located 6 kilometers (3.5 miles) southwest of Montalcino. Its name comes from the eponymous area where a characteristic nineteenth century railway station is located. The property consists of 460 total acres (184 hectares), 160 of which (65 hectares) are planted to vines with generally a south-western exposure at an altitude of 430 feet (130 metres) above sea level. The estate, since the very beginning, has followed a philosophy based on ageing in large casks. The latter are capable of preserving the exceptional integrity and fruit of the Sangiovese grapes and of endowing this Brunello with a characteristic vibrant elegance. Pian delle Vigne has belonged to the Antinori family since 1995, the year of the very first Brunello di Montalcino Pian delle Vigne vintage.
