Winemaker Notes

Vignaferrovia show an intense ruby color. The nose is distinguished by its excellent balance of ripe red fruit in admirable harmony with sensations of black cherries and hints of tobacco. The palate combines impeccably, pleasurable fruit, balance, and freshness, creating a very lengthy and persistent finish and aftertaste.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WE 95
Wine Enthusiast
Baking spice, red-plum, blue-flower and wild herb aromas emerge from the glass. The elegantly structured palate delivers juicy Morello cherry, raspberry compote and licorice while taut, fine-grained tannins and fresh acidity provide balanced support. A tobacco note lingers on the long linear finish.
Cellar Selection
RP 94
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
This wine reaches into the deep end of the Brunello intensity spectrum. The 2013 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Pian delle Vigne Vignaferrovia is a compact and robust expression of Sangiovese that presents a thick core of dark fruit followed by savory tones of tobacco, spice and cured leather. You might mistakenly conclude that this vintage offers a more international interpretation of Montalcino (with 30 months of oak aging), but I don't necessarily believe this to be the case. The wine is instead accurately reflective of Sangiovese with more textural richness, sunshine and structure locked within. This Riserva embodies a sense of place more than it does winemaking style.
JS 94
James Suckling
Some ripe berry-compote aromas with cola and vanilla. A very smooth and succulent palate with juicy tannins, drenched in rich, sweetly ripe cherry liqueur and chocolate flavors.
WS 93
Wine Spectator
Cherry, plum and blackberry fruit flavors mix with leather, tobacco and bitter almond notes in this solid, balanced red. Intense, driven by lively acidity and muscular tannins. Finishes with an aftertaste of plum, savory almond and light cumin.
D 90
Pian delle Vigne has belonged to the Antinori stable since 1995 but the Riserva wasn't produced until 2004. It hails from a 4ha gravelly plot that naturally curbs the vine's vigour. Aged in a succession of smaller then larger casks, it's already open in its expression. Think tea and leather with rosemary-studded plums. It has plenty of concentration with soft, mouthfilling tannins that will carry the wine for another eight to 10 years.

Montalcino Wine

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.
