Florence's Antinori family has been making wine in Tuscany for more than 600 years and produce one of the perennially best-selling Brunellos. Their Pian delle Vigne Estate is located 3.5 miles south of the town of Montalcino and was named after a characteristic 19th century train station located on the property, which is still in use.
Deep and brilliant ruby red in color, Pian delle Vigne is characterized by complex and intense aromas. The wine expresses floral notes accompanied by fragrant sensations of wild cherries, raspberries, and citrus fruit followed by chocolate, toasted tobacco leaves and licorice. On the finish, there is a perceptible presence of plums, mint and eucalyptus. Balanced and ample on the palate with full and intense flavors and texture, the wine is elegant and noble in the tactile sensations of its tannins and very mineral. This Brunello promises significant expressive possibilities as it ages and develops over time. Enjoy with steak, game birds and pasta with meat sauce.
