PIAN DELL'ORINO 2011 ROSSO DI MONTALCINO

The gorgeous and Certified Biodynamic Pian dell'Orino estate in Montalcino sits adjacent to the famed property of Biondi-Santi. In 1996, Caroline Pobitzer purchased the Pian dell'Orino property, and brought German-born Jan Hendrick Erbach on as winemaker. Erbach worked as an enologist in his home country and made wine in France. They married years later. Together they run the Pian dell'Orino winery with a fanatical commitment to maintaining a As a relatively young winery, Pian dell’Orino has only begun to receive critical attention from the wine critics. But oh what attention! Antonio Galloni waxed poetic: “It is amazing how far Pian dell’Orino has come in just a few years. Proprietors Jan Erbach and Caroline Pobitzer own what is now one of the very top estates in Montalcino, hands down. Tasting the wines from barrel is an amazing experience equaled by visits in only a handful of top domaines in the world. In this cellar, Sangiovese boasts striking finesse and crystalline purity… Readers who haven’t discovered Pian dell’Orino are in for a treat.”

The 2011 Rosso bursts with a knockout nose of red berries, vanilla, orange peel, plum and sandalwood. Bright and fresh in the mouth, the palate is greeted by penetrating flavors of sweet red cherry, strawberry and candied violets. The fruit is extremely pure with floral red berry flavors that are lush and lively. This resonates on the perfumed, sweet aftertaste. Drink now or hold for further aging.

Together they run the Pian dell’Orino winery with a fanatical commitment to maintaining a healthy ecosystem in which the vines can thrive without resorting to chemical pesticides, herbicides, fertilizers, or anything else that would disrupt the wholesome, natural environment they seek to maintain. Caroline and Jan concentrate on low yields, performing a green harvest by which the crop load is limited to a mere four bunches per vine. Winemaking is extremely hands-off: only native yeasts and no temperature control and certainly no enzymes or other modern enological manipulation.
