Description

Antinori is the most famous name in Italian wine and the influence of Piero Antinori in the last 25 years has been nothing short of revolutionary.

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 capable of preserving the exceptional integrity and fruit of the Sangiovese grapes and endow this Brunello with a characteristic vibrant elegance. Pian delle Vigne has belonged to the Antinori family since 1995, the year of the first Brunello di Montalcino Pian delle Vigne vintage

Underbrush and baked plum aromas mingle with whiffs of new leather and camphor. It’s medium in weight and well structured, delivering dried black cherry, liquorice and tobacco set against taut, fine-grained tannins. 94 pts Wine Enthusiast
