CLIMATE The early months of the year were marked by rains which left substantial reserves of ground water in the vineyards. As a direct consequence, there was an important and constant growth of the vegetation during the entire spring and an ample development of the canopy. The summer months were prevalently hot and dry, but the accumulated ground water enabled the vines to resist the dry spell without any particular difficulty and bring the grapes to complete ripeness at the end of their cycle. VINIFICATION A careful selection of the finest grapes, carried out as early as the month of July during the so-called “crop-thinning” phase and before the harvest as well, left only superior bunches for picking on the vines. The destemmed and pressed grapes were fermented for fifteen days in stainless steel tanks at temperatures held to a maximum of 81° Fahrenheit (27° centigrade). The wine then went through a complete malolactic fermentation and was aged in oak casks with a capacity ranging from 800 to 2100 gallons (3000-8000 liters). After more than two years of aging, the wine was bottled during the second half of January of 2013. HISTORICAL DATA The Pian delle Vigne estate is located 3.5 miles (6 kilometers) south of Montalcino and takes its name from a typical 19th century railroad located on the property. The estate consists of some 460 total acres (184 hectares), approximately 165 of which are planted to vines.  The vineyards have a predominantly southeastern exposure and their altitude varies from 430 to 660 feet (130-200 meters) above sea level. The calcareous clay soil is rich in small stones. TASTING NOTES The 2009 Pian delle Vigne is ruby red in color with garnet highlights, and its nose shows intense floral (violets) and fruity (plum and blackberry) aromas along with well integrated notes from the oak casks. Light spices and chocolate fuse on the aromatic finish with suggestions of leather, tobacco leaves, and balsamic notes. The palate is ample and elegant with silky and supple tannins and flavors of length and persistence which highlight a vibrant acidity and a mineral freshness. Given these characteristics, it is easy to foresee an important longevity and potential for development over time.

Pian Delle Vigne

Product by: Pian Delle Vigne

nThe 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 excellentproductive balance and give wines of very highquality 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.n
