2015 Pian dell'Orino Rosso di Montalcino - Tuscany, Italy. 750ml

 "Jan Erbach and Caroline Pobitzer continue to turn out some of the most riveting wines in Montalcino. What Erbach and Pobitzer have accomplished at Pian dell'Orino in just a few years is truly remarkable. There is little question that this small estate within a stone's throw of Bondi Santi is now one of the top dozen or so estates in Montalcino. Non-interventionalist farming and hands off approach in the cellar are two of the key principles that inform these wines. More importantly, though, Erbach is one of the most openly self-critical winemakers in Montalcino. It is that incessant, relentless drive that has propelled Pian dell'Orino to its vaunted status among Montalcino's elite. For readers who haven't tasted these wines yet, the closest stylistic equivalent are estates like Soldera, Poggio di Sotto and Salicutti. I can't recommend these wines highly enough." Antonio Galloni - Vinous
