"Captures this vintage’s cool spring then blindingly sunny autumn. An intense perfume of mint and cranberry, delicately layered tannins, it is creamy with beautiful defined fruit dripping with ripe precision. "
94 Antonio Galloni - Vinous
"One of the very best wines of the year, Pian dell'Orino's 2008 Brunello di Montalcino is drop-dead gorgeous. Sweet dark cherries, cloves, menthol, tar and licorice are some of the many notes that are woven into fabric of superb elegance and finesse. All the elements are in perfect balance in this utterly harmonious Brunello. Deeply layered and spiced throughout, the 2008 is simply stunning. The 2008 isn't as explosive as the very best vintages, but it is still a remarkable achievement for the year. Hints of orange peel and cloves add an exotic flair on the finish. This is a dazzling effort."

We were just able to pick up the last few cases of the 98 Point Pian dell'Orino 2008 Brunello!! This estate, which to some of you might be a tad under the radar is flat out on fire, earning outstanding press from a variety of top critics. Decanter just named this wine one of the top Brunello's worth seeking out and Antonio Galloni also issued incredible praise.
"It is amazing how far Pian dell’Orino has come in just a few years. Proprietors Jan Erbach and Caroline Pobitzer own what is now one of the very top estates in Montalcino, hands down ... The fruit is so pure here, I am not sure that extended aging in oak is really necessary. Readers who haven’t discovered Pian dell’Orino are in for a treat." - Antonio Galloni
Galloni went on to say, "One of the very best wines of the year, Pian dell’Orino’s 2008 Brunello di Montalcino is drop-dead gorgeous".
See why we are so excited??
Act quickly on this one as it is sure to fly. Hard to find Brunello with this kind of press in this price point!!
