      Text follows. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Aromas of wild berry and a whiff of ground clove form the subtle nose. On the fresh palate, notes of vanilla and star anise back up a juicy core of Morello cherry while polished tannins give smooth support." Wine Enthusiast

      "The aromatics are dark at first, showing crushed black cherry and plum, yet opening to reveal sweet herbs and tobacco, with moist soil and hints of worn leather. On the palate, silky textures flood the senses with a mix of black and red berry fruits, enlivened by brisk acids, as sweet spices and minerals settle in. The finish is long, with a dark, alluring sweetness, as notes of spiced-black cherry and sweet floral tones slowly fade. There is a balance and sheer enjoyability factor to the 2018 Pian delle Vigne Rosso that’s impossible to ignore." Vinous

    • Brunello di Montalcino "Pian delle Vigne" DOCG 2015

      Brunello di Montalcino “Pian delle Vigne” DOCG 2015

      Brunello Pian delle Vigne is an open, accessible wine from a great vintage: red cherries, flowers, tobacco, spices and herbs in an attractive bouquet, very full-bodied on the palate, yet particularly elegant, silky and refined, with a wonderfully harmonious structure. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Quite reductive and earthy, but opens to show tidy cranberries and glazed red cherries. Hints of citrus and spice. Full-bodied and rich, but there’s savory edge to the plush, juicy tannins, and lots of weight and density. Drink from 2024." James Suckling

      "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, licorice and tobacco set against taut, fine-grained tannins." Wine Enthusiast

      "The nose shows an alluring display of hauntingly dark florals giving way to crushed black cherry, plums, and tobacco, with hints of spiced citrus and undergrowth adding further depths. On the palate, silky textures flood the senses with ripe red and black fruits, carried by vibrant acids, as sweet spices and minerals slowly saturate, and fine tannin begins to mount toward the finale. The finish is long and structured, resonating on zesty wild berry fruits, spice, and minerals; yet its tannic heft keeps it all in check. The 2015 Pian delle Vigne is one of the few wines of the vintage that requires some time in the cellar, and with this balance of primary fruits, acids, and structure, it should emerge as something to behold."

    About the winemakers
    Pian delle Vigne | Antinori
    Tuscany | Montalcino
    Pian delle Vigne | Antinori

    The Tenuta Pian delle Vigne is situated about six kilometres south of Montalcino above the Val d'Orcia. Its name derives from a typical 19th century railway station on the estate, which is still in use today. The vineyard, acquired by Marchesi Antinori in 1995, covers 184 hectares, of which 65 hectares are registered. The property also includes about two hectares of olive groves and 117 hectares of forest.

    The vineyards, most of which face south-east, reach a height of between 130 and 200 metres above sea level. The loamy soils are clayey and calcareous, rich in skeletal elements and therefore ideal for growing Sangiovese. Half of the vineyard area is used exclusively for Brunello production.

    After destemming and pressing, the berries destined for Brunello are placed in stainless steel tanks in which fermentation takes place for about three weeks under temperature control. The wine obtained in this way then undergoes malolactic fermentation. The ageing phase, which can last up to three years, then begins in oak barrels with a capacity of between 30 and 80 hectolitres before the good wine is bottled.

    The first production of Brunello di Montalcino (vintage 1995) was launched at the beginning of 2000. The wines are considered balanced and very sustainable. With his Brunello Pian delle Vigne, Piero Antinori once again proves his reputation as one of the most important Italian wine producers.

    Under the management of Piero Antinori, the quality of Italian wines has been significantly influenced and improved in recent decades. Among other things, the wine enthusiast was one of the first to experiment with barrique ageing. The Antinori House - an ancient Florentine family that switched from silk trading to viticulture in 1385 - has its headquarters in a Renaissance palazzo built in 1469 in Florence. Today the Empire includes numerous wineries and cellars, mainly in Tuscany, but also in the wine-growing regions of Apulia, Piedmont and Umbria. SUPERIORE.DE
