2011 Brunello di Montalcino Pian delle Vigne Magnum 1.5L Antinori Tuscany - Italy Red
The Antinori Family has been involved in the production of wine for over six centuries, ever since, in 1385, Giovanni di Piero Antinori entered as a member, the “Arte Fiorentina”, the Winemakers’ Guild of the city of Florence. The Pian delle Vigne estate is located 3.5 miles to the south of the town of Montalcino above the Orcia river valley. The estate takes its name from a typical 19th-century railroad station located within the confines of the property.
The estate consists of 460 acres of land, 160 of which are planted to vines situated between 440-660 feet above sea level and with an exposure which is principal to the southwest. The soil consists prevalently of clay and limestone and is rich in small stones. The estate’s Brunello di Montalcino is produced exclusively from Sangiovese grapes.
The wine shows a brilliant ruby red color, and the nose is characterized by red fruit along with hints of tobacco and such spices as vanilla, cinnamon, cloves, and cardamom.
The palate is distinguished by balance and finesse: soft and silky tannins, the characteristics of this vintage, sustained by an excellent freshness, capable of adding elegance and flavor grace.
