2020 Pian dell’Orino Rosso di Montalcino

2020 Pian dell’Orino Rosso di Montalcino




In every vintage, this wine is a knockout in substance and style, and one of the appellations’ best. Jan tells me the power meets finesse of the 2020 is remarkable, its low yielding concentration off the charts (à la the outstanding 2019 in stock)…..This will be outrageously good, i’m certain….the price has taken a significant hike here, but in raw substance, I can’t take issue as this stuff is Brunello level quality by any measure…..This is once again the top scoring Rosso di Montalcino of the vintage for Eric Guido…..

“Crushed rocks, wild strawberries and dusty dried flowers form a darkly alluring bouquet as the 2020 Rosso di Montalcino opens in the glass. This is elegant and feminine in style, with pillowy soft textures and ripe red fruits as chalky tannins form toward the close. The 2020 tapers off grippy, yet with a bump of residual acids. Orange notes maintain a lovely freshness. The Rosso of Pian dell’Orino continues to be one of the top performers year after year.” 93 Eric Guido
