|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Brunello di Montalcino|
Madonna del Piano is the first single-vineyard in Montalcino. Our philosophy is to work more in the vineyards to respect the balance of the place. We like to produce a Brunello that represents the best tradition in structure and aromatics with more elegance, harmony and fruit.
Mind-blowing aromas of crushed berries, meat, blackberry and violet. Full-bodied, with layers of incredibly velvety tannins and a long, long finish. This is so complex and long, and the mouthfeel is spellbinding. Develops wonderfully in the glass, becoming more and more rich with air. One of the greatest Brunellos I have ever tasted. Best after 2012.
The 2001 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Madonna del Piano is another remarkable wine. It is a ripe, ample Brunello with tons of fruit. Compared to the broad-shouldered 1999, the 2001 possesses a touch greater detail and more finesse in its tannins. This is a beautifully delineated, chiseled wine of the highest level. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2023.
