"The 2007 Brunello di Montalcino is more than a worthy follow up to the spectacular 2006. Freshly cut flowers, violets, licorice, leather and tar meld into layers of dark fruit in a dazzling display of elegance and power. Silky tannins and expressive perfumed notes both add further refinement on the huge, explosive finish. The combination of ripeness of the year allied to a classic sense of structure is immensely appealing. This is one of the few 2007s I tasted that still needs time in the cellar, even though today it is flat-out stunning. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2027. It is hard to imagine how much Jan Erbach and Caroline Pobitzer have accomplished in just a few years. Erbach and Pobitzer embody the same adventurous, risk-taking ethos one rarely sees in Montalcino, but which is much more common among top-flight, artisan growers in Burgundy, Piedmont and Champagne. Pian dell’Orino is still a young estate, and the wines can sometimes be a bit inconsistent, especially the Riserva, which I don’t think is still fully formed from a conceptual standpoint. Still, I have little doubt the potential is there for Pian dell’Orino to be one of the top ten producers in Montalcino in a few years. The writing is on the wall. Hard work, passion and dedication always pay off. Jan Erbach describes 2007 as similar to 2003, with the exception of rain during July, which helped the vines recuperate a bit. The harvest was earlier than normal and took place from September 20 to October 1." ~ AG

" The estate’s Brunello di Montalcino is fermented similarly to the Rosso, but with a longer maceration period of five to six weeks (as opposed to two weeks for the Rosso), at slightly higher temperatures, and then aged from two to three years in cask prior to being bottled unfiltered. The classic and hauntingly beautiful, ageworthy Brunello di Montalcino, are amongst the finest examples of their respective appellations to be found in Montalcino. From two vineyards, Pian dell'orino and Pian Bossolino, with vines between 9-32 years old. Elevation 330-470 m. above sea level. Clay-limestone, rich in fossils. Certified Organic. Grapes are destemmed, then macerated for 3 days. Fermented with natural yeasts and no additives. 1026 cs. produced. " ~ Winery notes
