Tasting Notes

Nestled in the iconic Brunello di Montalcino region, Piombaia Winery boasts 12 hectares of vineyards, harmoniously cradled by woodlands that naturally nurture the vines. Since 2008, embracing biodynamics has revolutionized our vineyard ethos. In a captivating shade of blood red, one can discern subtle undertones of iron, rust, and the allure of bramble and artichoke flowers. This wine beckons with its inviting drinkability, complemented by a lively acidity, all harmoniously balanced by delightfully textured tannins.

Piombaia

The Piombaia family farm emerged from the union of the Rossi and Cantini families. For three generations, the farm has been led by various family members. Currently, Francesco, Cecilia, and Vittorio Cantini oversee its management. Since 2009, the team at Piombaia has embraced biodynamic farming principles. Their wine embodies their work and life philosophy. Beyond the expertise and intuition of the winemaker and producer, the wine captures the unique essence of each season and vintage. Every vintage retains its distinct personality and structure, ensuring the wine isn't a mere replication but rather a reflection of nature's nuances. The Piombaia vineyards, in north-eastern Montalcino, are split into different plots, diversified in Altitude and soil. They view their vineyard as a holistic living entity, akin to the surrounding woods. Everything exists in harmony: the nourishing underbrush, diverse fauna, and the vineyard's innate self-regulation. Similarly, the wine is allowed to freely express its inherent potential.
