About This Item

Overview: Piancornello is a winery born from strong ties with the land and the hard work of four generations, in a territory where Brunello, the village of Montalcino and a centuries-old history blend together. In 1950, Zefiro Pieri fell in love with Montalcino and acquired the property of Piancornello, which consisted of a rural house dating back to the 1700s and the land surrounding it, and started to plant the first Brunello vineyards. In the years that followed, great part of the family left the estate, with the exception of Alfeo and Silvana Pieri who continued to cultivate it. That tradition continued to live through their son Claudio and the first vintage under the PIancornello brand came out in 1991. 

The name “Pian” refers to the vineyard’s location on a hamlet of rocky, volcanic soil in the Orcia Valley. This warm, southwestern portion of Montalcino produces full-bodied, mineral flavored wines as result of its southern exposure, hilly slopes and alluvial soil.

Tasting Notes: Intense ruby red with a garnet hue. The nose opens to notes of red and black berries, spices and herbs. The palate is full-bodied and fruity, with a consistent, dense and perfectly balanced tannin, followed by balsamic notes and a long, harmonious and gradual finish. 

Pairing: Beef and venison

Points: 88, Wine Enthusiast

Format / ABV: 750 ml / 14.5%
