Antinori Pian delle Vigne Rosso di Montalcino 2019

This wine accentuates the pleasant freshness of the Sangiovese grape, Montalcino’s historic variety. The vineyard’s soil composition is calcareous-clay that allows Rosso di Montalcino to develop its characteristic freshness, minerality and finish.

Antinori Pian delle Vigne Rosso di Montalcino 2019

The vintage was characterised by a winter which, on the whole, saw little rainfall and by a mild spring. These climatic conditions favored as lightly early bud break and flowering, balanced by a regular epoch of bud set. The summer was marked by temperatures above normal seasonal averages, particularly during the months of July and August. Light rainfall during September and the consequent fall in temperatures assisted the grapes in achieving full ripeness in an optimal fashion, giving the Sangiovese a surprising freshness along with balanced and supple tannins. The picking of the Sangiovese grapes to be used for the Rosso di Montalcino took place during the second half of the month of September.

Upon arriving in the cellars, the grapes were destemmed and lightly pressed and then went into stainless steel tanks to be fermented at temperatures held to approximately 77° Fahrenheit (25° centigrade) in order to fully conserve theiraromatic patrimony; the fermentation lasted from eight to ten days. At the end of the malolactic fermentation, the wine went into large oak casks where it was aged for a period of approximately twelve months. Historical Data Pian del Vigne estate, located 3.5 miles (6 kilometers) to the southwest of the town of Montalcino, takes its name from a characteristic 19 th century railroad station situated within the confines of the estate. The property consists of 460 total acres (184 hectares), 160 of which (65 hectares)are planted to vines with generally a south-western exposure at an altitude of 430 feet (130 meters)above sea level. Pian delle Vigne is the personal and profound interpretation on the part of Marchesi Antinori of a traditional prestigious wine such as Brunello di Montalcino. The estate has belonged to the Antinori family since 1995, the year of the first vintage of the Pian delle Vigne Brunello. The Pian delle Vigne Rosso di Montalcino aims to fully bring out the fragrance of pure Sangiovese, the historic grape variety of Montalcino. The vineyards are situated on calcareous clay soils which create a wine which is fresh, mineral in character,and excellent drinking.

Tasting Notes

The wine is an intense ruby red in colour and its nose is dominated by notes of such ripe red fruit as wild cherries and raspberries given an additional complexity by hints of violets and dog roses, spices,and the characteristic herbs of Mediterranean brush land. The flavours are fresh and vibrant with supple and silky tannins. On the aftertaste, the notes of such ripe red fruit as red currants and raspberries fuse with light balsamic sensations to compose along and savoury finish
