Pian dell'Orino Brunello di Montalcino 'Vigneti del Versante' 2012

Pian dell’Orino’s six hectares of vines sit next to Biondi Santi, the most iconic and influential name in all of Montalcino. Vines are farmed organically and biodynamically, producing pure, high-quality wines, from low-yielding plants. The 2012 ‘Vigneti del Versante’ is highly fragrant, showing notes of cherry, dried roses, ginger, and herbs. Crunchy acidity and savory fruitiness make this highly anticipated vintage both harmonious and delicious.

Sangiovese

Italy’s most-planted red and one of its noblest: a Tuscan icon (Chianti Classico; Brunello) that wanders through many regions. Crisp cherry-scented with a woodsy savor; Italy’s answer to Pinot Noir.

Montalcino, Italy

Whereas Chianti and Montepulcino anchor Central Tuscany, the vintners of Montalcino, located further south, call Sangiovese 'Brunello' and take it in a bolder, brawnier, more ageworthy direction.
