We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.

Since the 2004 vintage, Pian dell'Orino has classified their vineyards taking into consideration different aspects. According to them, the quality of every wine is related to aspects of a certain vineyard or part of a vineyard. Geological and lithological (releated to the study of rocks) parameters, soil texture, inclination, waters upply are only some o fthe paramters they considered. They chose the name "Vigneti del Versante" for the name of their Brunello di Montalcino. This name indicates simply that the grapes for this Brunello come from their own vineyards, all situated in the same macro-zone on the South-East slope of Montalcino.

Wine Advocatehis wine exudes elegant power and linear finesse. The 2012 Brunello di Montalcino Vigneti del Versante has not yet been released. In fact, it will hit the market after the younger 2013 vintage. We should expect to see it in the fall of 2018. The bouquet offers so much care and detailing that all comes together like a massive ceiling fresco in an Italian Renaissance palace. The bouquet allows for a big picture perspective with wild cherry, rose hip, dried ginger, rosemary and spice. The mouthfeel is firm, almost crunchy. Swirl the glass a few times and savory tones of moist earth and exotic tea begin to appear. This is a beautiful wine worth waiting for. The wines of Pian dell'Orino put forth an uncanny sense of zen and harmony. This is something I notice each year when I visit the estate for my tasting. Honestly, that fantastic sense of vinous peace and harmony is something I have only encountered here with this level of consistency. The 2013 Brunello di Montalcino Vigneti del Versante will actually be released before the 2012 edition. The less accessible 2012 Brunello di Montalcino Vigneti del Versante needed more bottle time and will hit the market toward the end of this year. The highly anticipated 2012 Brunello di Montalcino Bassolino di Sopra should be released one year from now. Drink 2022-2045
