The Pian dell Orino estate is adjacent to the Biondi Santi property. This area has a long history of being particularly suited for growing grapes for high quality wines. Husband and wife team Caroline and Jan's love for Tuscany and passion for viticulture binds them particularly to this land, their vines and the resulting wines. The wines are produced from four different vineyards that have a total area of 6 hectares. From the beginning they studied the soil and the structure of each vineyard in order to fully understand its characteristics. Fossils, petrified shells and chalk sediment all testify to the earth’s evolutions and recount marine flooding and periods of drought in the area. The Sangiovese grapes are harvested from their estate vineyards Pian Bassolino and Cancello Rosso. Grapes are carefully hand-selected after harvesting, and only healthy and ripe berries are used for vinification. Spontaneous fermentation proceeded slowly but steadily and took more than six weeks until all of the sugar had been transformed. The must macerated for a further three weeks on the skins. The wine aged in two 25HL oak barrels for 45 months. With time in the glass, the sweet red cherry and plum fruit begins to emerge. Tobacco, rose petal and orange peel add the closing shades of nuance.
