HISTORY AND COMPANY
Pian dell 'Orino is one of the names of excellence of Brunello di Montalcino: a small winery that has achieved record valuations both in Italy and abroad in recent years. Caroline Pobitzer from South Tyrol was founded in 1997 together with her German husband Jan Herback, a long-time winemaker and winemaker, united by a common passion for the Montalcino terroir and great wines. The Pian dell'Orino winery is located in the town of the same name in the municipality of Montalcino, next to the Greppo estate of the Biondi Santi family. The property is divided into 4 vineyards with a total area of 6 hectares, cultivated by Jan with great competence, attention to every detail and respecting biodynamics. The agronomic approach pursues the highest quality and the work in the cellar takes place in a natural and non-invasive way, enhancing the work done in the vineyard: "the cellar has little or much to do with what grape brings us inside" says Jan If in the vineyard all synthetic chemicals are banned in favor of biodynamic preparations, manure and green manure, in the cellar the fermentations take place in steel or truncated cone-shaped vats, without temperature control and with long maceration. In continuity with the best traditional practices, only native yeasts are used and the refinements provide for the use of large barrels. The wines of Pian dell'Orino represent high and vertiginous expressions of Montalcino: from the intense and juicy red to the Brunello of great depth, with a classic and austere, fruity and expressive character. These are wines of great complexity and elegance, produced with so much wisdom following traditional and genuine methods: the result of vineyards treated in every detail.
