(From 2009 Vintage) The 2009 Pian delle Vigne is ruby red in color with garnet highlights, and its nose shows intense floral (violets) and fruity (plum and blackberry) aromas along with well integrated notes from the oak casks. Light spices and chocolate fuse on the aromatic finish with suggestions of leather, tobacco leaves, and balsamic notes. The palate is ample and elegant with silky and supple tannins and flavors of length and persistence which highlight a vibrant acidity and a mineral freshness.
a beautiful hue of garnet gives way to a near perfect nose of dried cherries and gig, coupled with a hint of all spice. Laced structure yielding a smooth tannin trip. a never ending finish that transports you Montalcino!
hint of floral note, dried red fruits, full body, finish a bit short, palate a bit flat,
