            [Notes1] => Pian delle Vigne Brunello di Montalcino has a ruby red color.

On the palate the entrance is persuasive, silky, characterized by sweet tannins and supported by excellent freshness. Along the aftertaste characterized by aromas of vanilla and notes of violet, the latter typical of Sangiovese.
            [Notes2] => 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 meters) above sea level. Soil composition is essentially clay, calcareous and rich in very fine gravel. The vineyards are planted entirely with Sangiovese.
            [Notes3] => 
            [Notes4] => Winter and spring 2018 were characterized by slightly below average temperatures and frequent rainfall. These climatic conditions have guaranteed the accumulation of excellent water reserves in the soil, favoring a regular budding and an excellent fruit set. The defoliation carried out in June and the thinning of the grapes between the end of July and the beginning of August guaranteed an excellent vegetative balance and the optimal ripening of the grapes. The harvest, slightly postponed compared to the historical average, began on September 21st and ended the first days of October with healthy and fragrant berries.
            [MediaNotes] => 
            [ServingSuggestion] => 
            [WineMakingNotes] => Upon arrival at the winery, the grapes were destemmed and softly crushed and then transferred to stainless steel tanks where alcoholic fermentation took place. Maceration took place on average in twelve days at a temperature of 28 °C. After malolactic fermentation, the wine was transferred to oak barrels between 30 and 80 Hl in size where it began the maturation process in wood. After two years Pian delle Vigne left the large barrel to start towards the long aging in bottle.

medieval castle. 160 ha of vineyards sit on particularly complex land at 
altitudes of between 164 & 650 ft above sea level. The textural, smart Chardonnay and focussed blending in of other varieties mean that these wines are among the most sought after whites from this part of Italy.
                    [Notes2] => The total surface area of the Pian delle Vigne estate is 184 hectares (470 acres), 65 of which (over 160 acres) are planted to vines; there are two hectares (five acres) of olive groves and 117 hectares of woods. The entire vineyard is planted to Sangiovese (known locally as “Brunello”), the altitude varies from 130 meters to 250 meters (430 to 825 feet) above sea level, and the exposure is prevalently southeast. The soil is principally clayey and calcareous and is rich in stones.
 Approximately half of the vineyard was planted in 1996-1997, and these vines are now in excellent productive balance and give wines of very high quality indeed; these “older” vineyards have
 been joined by 33 new hectares (82 acres) which will produce the new wines of the estate utilizing five Sangiovese clones from Montalcino along with Antinori selections of their finest Sangiovese. As a result of the temperate climate which prevails at Montalcino, the grapes in this township ripen a week or two earlier than those in Chianti Classico and this allows harvesting to begin in mid-September. In addition, the particular mineral richness of the soil give an even greater savor and elegance to the tannins of the wines, a quality which becomes even more perceptible with age.

                    [Notes2] => The total surface area of the Pian delle Vigne estate is 184 hectares (470 acres), 65 of which (over 160 acres) are planted to vines; there are two hectares (five acres) of olive groves and 117 hectares of woods. The entire vineyard is planted to Sangiovese (known locally as “Brunello”), the altitude varies from 130 meters to 250 meters (430 to 825 feet) above sea level, and the exposure is prevalently southeast. The soil is principally clayey and calcareous and is rich in stones.
 Approximately half of the vineyard was planted in 1996-1997, and these vines are now in excellent productive balance and give wines of very high quality indeed; these “older” vineyards have
 been joined by 33 new hectares (82 acres) which will produce the new wines of the estate utilizing five Sangiovese clones from Montalcino along with Antinori selections of their finest Sangiovese. As a result of the temperate climate which prevails at Montalcino, the grapes in this township ripen a week or two earlier than those in Chianti Classico and this allows harvesting to begin in mid-September. In addition, the particular mineral richness of the soil give an even greater savor and elegance to the tannins of the wines, a quality which becomes even more perceptible with age.

About this product +

Producer >

Tuscany is famous for its red wines so when Marchese Niccolò Antinori, father of Piero, the current chairman of the company, decided to make a great white wine, he looked to Umbria and bought the Castello della Sale property, intrigued by the potential of the land and the beautiful medieval castle. 160 ha of vineyards sit on particularly complex land at altitudes of between 164 & 650 ft above sea level. The textural, smart Chardonnay and focussed blending in of other varieties mean that these wines are among the most sought after whites from this part of Italy.

Viticulture >

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 meters) above sea level. Soil composition is essentially clay, calcareous and rich in very fine gravel. The vineyards are planted entirely with Sangiovese.

Winemaking >

Upon arrival at the winery, the grapes were destemmed and softly crushed and then transferred to stainless steel tanks where alcoholic fermentation took place. Maceration took place on average in twelve days at a temperature of 28 °C. After malolactic fermentation, the wine was transferred to oak barrels between 30 and 80 Hl in size where it began the maturation process in wood. After two years Pian delle Vigne left the large barrel to start towards the long aging in bottle.
