The Pian delle Vigne estate, located six kilometers to the south of the town of Montalcino above the Orcia river valley, has belonged to the Antinori family since 1995. It takes its name from a typical railroad station of the 19th century situated within the estate’s confines and still in use. The total surface area of the Pian delle Vigne estate is 184 hectares (470 acres), 65 of which (over 160 acres) are planted to vines; there are two hectares (five acres) of olive groves and 117 hectares of woods.

The vineyards. The total surface area of the Pian delle Vigne estate is 184 hectares (470 acres), 65 of which (over 160 acres) are planted to vines; there are two hectares (five acres) of olive groves and 117 hectares of woods. The entire vineyard is planted to Sangiovese (known locally as “Brunello”), the altitude varies from 130 meters to 250 meters (430 to 825 feet) above sea level, and the exposure is prevalently southeast. The soil is principally clayey and calcareous and is rich in stones. Approximately half of the vineyard was planted in 1996-1997, and these vines are now in excellentproductive balance and give wines of very highquality indeed; these “older” vineyards have been joined by 33 new hectares (82 acres) which will produce the new wines of the estate utilizing five Sangiovese clones from Montalcino along with Antinori selections of their finest Sangiovese. As a result of the temperate climate which prevails at Montalcino, the grapes in this township ripen a week or two earlier than those in Chianti Classico and this allows harvesting to begin in mid-September. In addition, the particular mineral richness of the soil give an even greater savor and elegance to the tannins of the wines, a quality which becomes even more perceptible with age.
