Why this wine made the cut…
An exemplar of why Pian dell'Orino is one of Tuscany's top producers.
Montalcino, Tuscany
GRAPE VARIETAL(S)
Sangiovese
100% San-Joe-VAY-say
Sangiovese is grown throughout Central Italy, but is most famous for Brunello Di Montalcino and Chianti Classico in Tuscany. While historically the quality of Sangiovese wines was variable, the best wines are influenced by terroir and low yields. At its best, it makes some of some of Italy’s best wines. It performs particularly well on limestone soils at higher altitudes yielding elegant age-worthy Tone & Backbone wines with a complex combination of red fruit, earth, and minerals.

Pian dell'Orino

Montalcino, Tuscany

Pian dell’Orino is among the early pioneers of organic farming in Montalcino. This small, artisanal estate is not only dedicated to sustainable and biodynamic farming, but also making wines of uncompromising quality.

Pian dell’Orino’s meticulous focus on letting the vineyard speak for itself is evident in their approach. They do a strict green harvest so that each vine yields only four bunches of grapes, they harvest by hand, and their winemaking follows the same natural ethos. 

The Rosso di Montalcino is perennially one of the best around. The Brunello di Montalcino deftly balances power and elegance—a wine of seductive aroma and unique character.
