PIAN DELLE VIGNE ROSSO DI MONTALCINO DOC 2019A wine that enhances the pleasant fragrance of pure Sangiovese, a historic variety of Montalcino.....
The spring of 2019, characterized in the first part by above average temperatures, gave way to a generally cool and dry climate in the second half of the season. During the month of May, frequent rainfall favored a slight slowdown in vegetative growth, while ensuring the excellent accumulation of water reserves in the soil. The summer season, remembered by many as one of the hottest in the Montalcino area, never recorded high thermal peaks in the Pian delle Vigne area where, on the contrary, well-distributed rainfall and excellent temperature variations between day and night created the ideal conditions for a correct maturation of Sangiovese. The harvest, slightly postponed compared to the historical average, began in the second half of September with healthy and fragrant grapes.
Upon arrival in the cellar, the grapes were de-stemmed, softly pressed and transferred to stainless steel tanks where alcoholic fermentation took place at a temperature of 25 ° C, which took about 8-10 days. At the end of the malolactic fermentation, the wine began its refinement period lasting about 8 months.
Pian delle Vigne estate, located 6 km. south-west from Montalcino, it takes its name from a characteristic nineteenth-century railway station on its grounds. The company consists of 184 hectares, of which 65 are vineyards exposed mainly to the south-west at an altitude of about 130 meters above sea level. Pian delle Vigne represents the Marquises Antinori's personal and profound interpretation of a prestigious and traditional wine such as Brunello. The company has been owned by the Antinori family since 1995, the year of the first harvest of Brunello Pian delle Vigne. Pian delle Vigne's Rosso di Montalcino enhances the pleasant fragrance of pure Sangiovese, a historic variety of Montalcino. The vineyards located on calcareous-clayey soils give life to a fresh, mineral and highly drinkable wine.
The wine has a lively ruby red color. The nose is expressed with pleasant hints of red fruit, such as cherry and black cherry, with small floral notes of violet and lavender. On the palate it is fresh, fine and tasty, with soft and enveloping tannins; it strikes for the succulence of the fruit and for the persistence of taste. Excellent drinking pleasure.
