Stefano Sincini established Pianirossi over thirty years ago in the southern Tuscan Maremma region. Today it is a 40 acre estate producing sought after wines and a charming old farmhouse converted to a boutique hotel. The wines are produced under the lead of Carlo Ferrini, one of the most important oenologists working in Italy today. He consults with many Italian as well as international wineries. Ferrini says “An important wine can only happen in the vineyard. My biggest challenge is to find new soils to plant the vineyards.” With Pianirossi, he identified an incredible potential and he selected the most appropriate varieties for that site. Pianirossi has a small and intentional wine portfolio so they can focus on producing quality wines that truly reflect their sense of place.
Deep red in the glass. its bouquet is elegant and complex with notable traces of blackberry, strawberry, spices and balsamic notes. The palate is mouth filling and rich with lots of ripe fruit supported by a firm tannic structure and notable persistence on the finish. It promises an excellent ageing capacity. This Super Tuscan will elevate any premium cut of meat, try it grilled or roast meats, game and mature cheeses.
The Maremma area was once a marshland; a swampy area that was drained and reclaimed for agricultural purposes in the first half of the 20th century. Pianirossi is located in the southern Maremma and slightly inland, within the Montecucco DOC, at the foothill of Monte Amiata. The Orcia river separates this area from Montalcino to the north. The climate is Mediterranean, though moderated by higher elevation and wind currants which provide optimal diurnal variation ensuring the grapes ripen well while retaining their acidity. The Pianirossi Maremma Toscana IGT is a blend of 40% Petit Verdot, 30% Montepulciano and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon produced in area of Cinigiano in the Maremma region of Tuscany. The wine spends 15 months in French barriques.
