    Winemaker's Notes:

    The name Pietradonice comes from the land where the wine is planted, which is very rich in onyx. It is a wine which uses exclusively Cabernet and Sauvignon grapes: almost a challenge, to achieve a product which fully returns the flavor of the earth and its stone. If we add very low yields per plant and the climatic factor, we can see it – and we say this with a touch of conceit – as the wine which most tangibly represents Casanova di Neri. Pietradonice succeeds in reconciling international flavor with local tradition and, in the end, all the personality of Montalcino floods out.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2010 Pietradonice is beautiful in this vintage. A wine more of Montalcino than a true expression of Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2010 is delineated and vibrant from start to finish. Savory herbs lead to black plums, tobacco, mocha and crushed rocks on the firm, vibrant finish. I am not a huge fan of international varieties in Montalcino, but there is no question the Pietradonice is endowed with tons of vintage character, and 2010 is a superb vintage for this part of Tuscany in particular.
