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.
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.
