A glycerol-like texture joins licorice and menthol notes to lend this red an air of maturity, with a core of cherry and raspberry fruit. This is beautifully balanced, though the tannins will be even smoother in a few years. Fine, mineral aftertaste. Best from 2012 through 2025. 1,500 cases imported. -BS The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino Pian delle Vigne is one of the more open, accessible wines of the vintage. Dried red cherries, flowers, tobacco, spices and herbs are some of the notes that emerge from this attractive, fleshy Brunello. In 2006 the Pian delle Vigne is especially elegant, silky and refined, with gorgeous textural elegance and lovely overall balance. The Pian delle Vigne was fermented in stainless steel and spent 24 months in oak prior to being bottled. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2018. ** SOLD OUT **

Antinori is a world famous producer of Tuscan wines, their history going back literally centuries. The Villa Antinori is the estate where the Chianti Classico wines have been produced for many years. This wine is a natural progression from their Chianti Classico. As the Antinoris recognized how non-native grapes like Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah raised the level of quality of their wine they started blending more and more and finally could no longer use the DOC designation and so it became a Super Tuscan IGT. But the quality they’ve reached is exceptional, especially as they’ve experimented more with aging in small oak barrels. This 2006 is a blend of 55% Sangiovese, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot and 5% Syrah aged for 12 months in French, American and Hungarian oak barrels. Wine Spectator Scored it 90 points saying "Complex aromas of blackberry and mushroom, with hints of grilled meat. Full-bodied, with soft, velvety tannins and juicy, rich fruit. Harmonious and long in the mouth. Delicious already. Best after 2010."
