After several years of experimentation in the vineyards to produce a wine of high quality level, this Rosso di Montalcino began to be produced in 2012 and it joined the other two wines of the estate, the Brunello Pian della Vigna and the Brunello Riserva Vignaferrovia. The Pian delle Vigne estate is located 3. 5 miles (six kilometres) to the south of Montalcino above the Orcia river valley, and takes its name from a typical railroad station located within the confines of the property. The estate consists of approximately 460 acres (184 hectares) of land, with some 160 acres (65 hectares) planted to vines. The vineyards, with an exposure which is principally to the southeast, are situated at an altitude between 430 and 660 feet (130-200 meters) above sea level.
