The Pian delle Vigne Rosso di Montalcino DOC by Tenuta Pian delle Vigne is presented in shiny ruby red in the glass. On the nose, it surprises with fruity aromas of cherry and raspberry, finely complemented by delicate wood notes. On the palate, this red wine from Montalcino is attractively fresh, easily accessible, tasteful, with soft and silky tannins, powerful and sustainable. The finale is long, incredibly fresh, with a mineral finish.
