Brunello di Montalcino 2010 Pian Delle Vigne, Antinori
Antinori’s Pian Delle Vigne is unique single estate in Montalcino. The estate is located 3.5 miles south of Montalcino and takes its name from a historic 19th century railroad located on the property. The estate consists of approximately 165 acres of vines with a predominantly southeastern exposure and altitude up to 660 feet above sea level. The calcareous clay soil is rich in gravel which provides good drainage. A careful selection of the finest grapes, carried out as early as the month of July during the so-called “crop-thinning” phase and before the harvest as well, left only superior bunches for picking on the vines. The destemmed and crushed grapes were fermented for fifteen days in stainless steel tanks at temperatures held to a maximum of 81° Fahrenheit (27° centigrade). The wine then went through a complete malolactic fermentation and was aged in oak casks with a capacity ranging from 800 to 2100 gallons (3000-8000 liters) for more than two years. After aging, the wine was bottled during the second half of January of 2013 and released on Spring 2014. For this Brunello yields are kept extremely low with a green harvest in July. Only the healthiest grape bunches are nurtured to full ripeness. Handpicking is followed by de-stemming and a fifteen day temperature controlled fermentation. The wine is aged in traditional large oak casks allowing the Sangiovese full expression. James Suckling scored this 2010 96 points saying "Lots of candied-orange, dark-fruit and dried-flower character on the nose. Full body with soft, silky tannins and a chewy finish. Funky and intense. Lots of smoked-meat, berry and dark-chocolate character. Very rich and delicious. Best Brunello from here in a long time. Try in 2016."
