DENOMINATION Brunello Di Montalcino DOCG

PAIRING Aperitif, Meat, Cold cuts

The Montalcino estate Pian delle Vigne was acquired by the Antinori family in 1995 and is located on the southeastern slope of the Montalcino hillside in the direction of Val d'Orcia. It benefits from its name from an 1800s railway station still in operation that lies within the beautiful 184-hectare estate, one-third of which is planted with Sangiovese grosso vines. It is from these grapes that Pian delle Vigne, the Antinori house's Brunello di Montalcino, originates, an elegant and sensual wine that matures in large oak barrels for more than two years before refining in the bottle.

Ruby color tending toward garnet. The nose is followed in sequence by sensations of violets, berries and plums, then black pepper, pleasant mentholated touches and hints of leather and chocolate. In the mouth it expresses vigor and roundness, with tannins of excellent carat that anticipate a very long finish.

Ideal with delicious stuffed meats such as quail or pigeon.

The Winery

Talking about the Antinori winery is very difficult because you really have to go back in time! In fact, it was back in 1385 when Giovanni di Piero Antinori joined the Arte Fiorentina dei Vinattieri, and it was not until the 16th century that the family's wines became known outside the borders of Italy. Today, the family continues to write its very long history of tradition and quality, helping to bring Italian wine to the top of the world, through the many estates it owns from which an ever-expanding range is born: Guado al Tasso, Pian delle Vigne, La Braccesca, Castello della Sala, are just a few of the protagonists of this never-ending story, located between Bolgheri, Montalcino, Montepulciano and Orvieto, territories considered the 'cradle' of central Italian wine-making. Not to mention Solaia and Tignanello, among the most appreciated red wines in the world, symbols of a constant and continuous search for quality; what we most want to emphasize is how, even in the most 'simple' expressions, the family knows how to bring out its proverbial appeal: each Antinori-branded glass reveals a glimpse of the lands from which it comes and of the history linked to these lands, giving satisfaction with aristocratic ways and always managing, at the same time, to maintain an international outlook because, as the family likes to tell it, ancient roots play a fundamental role in the philosophy but will never inhibit the company's innovative spirit!
