Winemaker Notes

Deep and brilliant ruby red in color, the 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.

Critical Acclaim

JS 94
James Suckling
A soft and silky 2011 Brunello showing richness yet balance and freshness at the same time. Full body and round textured. Fine velvet mouth feel. Plenty of complex berry and light hazelnut character.
WE 91
Wine Enthusiast
Truffle, scorched earth, graphite, mature black-skinned fruit and crushed blue flower aromas emerge in the glass. The firm palate offers dried black cherry, mint, clove, anise and a gamy note alongside youthfully assertive tannins.
W&S 90
Wine & Spirits
Flavors of black and red cherry feel juicy and fleshy, showing good freshness for the warm 2011 vintage. Those fruit flavors gain richness after a few hours, taking on notes of black spice, wild herbs and a roasted mushroom earthiness. The tannins feel pliant and chewy, ready to complement beef tenderloin seasoned with a dried porcini rub.Ste. Michelle Wine Estates, Woodinville, WA

Tuscany, Italy

Famous for its bold, layered and long-lived red, Brunello di Montalcino, the town of Montalcino is about 70 miles south of Florence, and has a warmer and drier climate than that of its neighbor, Chianti. The Sangiovese grape is king here, as it is in Chianti, but Montalcino has its own clone called Brunello.

The Brunello vineyards of Montalcino blanket the rolling hills surrounding the village and fan out at various elevations, creating the potential for Brunello wines expressing different styles. From the valleys, where deeper deposits of clay are found, come wines typically bolder, more concentrated and rich in opulent black fruit. The hillside vineyards produce wines more concentrated in red fruits and floral aromas; these sites reach up to over 1,600 feet and have shallow soils of rocks and shale.

Brunello di Montalcino by law must be aged a minimum of four years, including two years in barrel before realease and once released, typically needs more time in bottle for its drinking potential to be fully reached. The good news is that Montalcino makes a “baby brother” version. The wines called Rosso di Montalcino are often made from younger vines, aged for about a year before release, offer extraordinary values and are ready to drink young.

Among Italy's elite red grape varieties, Sangiovese has the perfect intersection of bright red fruit and savory earthiness and is responsible for the best red wines of Tuscany. While it is best known as the chief component of Chianti, it is also the main grape in Vino Nobile di Montepulciano and reaches the height of its power and intensity in the complex, long-lived Brunello di Montalcino. Somm Secret—Sangiovese doubles under the alias, Nielluccio, on the French island of Corsica where it produces distinctly floral and refreshing reds and rosés.
