Le Piane Piane 2018

Product Details

Croatina is a difficult grape because the tannins ripen very late. So Christoph decided not to harvest until they are fully ripe. The grapes from these old vines are of course lower in acidity and higher in sugar, making this soft, powerful tasting wine somewhat reminiscent of Amarone.

AG: “The 2018 Piane, the estate’s old-vine Croatina/Vespolina field blend, is a huge, inky wine. Blueberry, espresso, lavender, mint and dark spice all flesh out in a potent, layered Alto Piemonte red endowed with tremendous depth and sheer intensity. The 2018 is quite the powerhouse. It is also exquisitely beautiful and vivid from the very first taste. A wine that speaks with gravitas, the 2018 Piane is a must have for fans of the estate.” 94/100
