The Antinori family has been making wine for over six hundred years, since Giovanni di Piero Antinori became part of the Arte Fiorentina dei Vinattieri in 1385. Throughout its long history, spanning 26 generations, the family has always personally managed the business making innovative, sometimes courageous choices, always with unwavering respect for tradition and the land. Today Marchese Piero Antinori is director of the company, assisted by his three daughters, Albiera, Allegra and Alessia, who are personally involved in the business. The qualities of tradition, passion and instinct have made Antinori one of the leading Italian producers of fine quality wines. Every vintage, every terroir, every idea is a new beginning, a new quest to raise our quality margins. As Marchese Piero loves to repeat: “ancient roots play an important role in our philosophy, but they have never held back our spirit of innovation”. As well as the family's traditional heritage of estates in Tuscany and Umbria, investments have been made over time in other areas highly suited to quality wine production, in Italy and abroad, in a quest to promote new terroirs, rich in winegrowing potential. Antinori continually experiment with their vineyards and cellars, with selections of native and international clones, growing methods, vineyard altitudes, fermentation methods and temperatures, traditional and modern vinification techniques, types of wood, size and age of barrels, and various bottle-ageing periods. Piero Antinori says: “We have shown over the years that it is possible to produce internationally-acclaimed fine stylish, elegant wines in Tuscany and Umbria while maintaining their original character”. Looking to the future, Antinori explains: “There are many books in our library but they are never enough for us. Our mission is not yet complete: we are driven to express the vast potential of our vineyards and reconcile all that is new and undiscovered with Tuscany's traditional, cultural, agricultural, artistic and literary heritage. These things represent the identity of Antinori, and one of our greatest strengths is that we are in Tuscany – our essential ‘Tuscan-ness', if you will”. Read less

I do not "gush" easily about a wine, but I am tempted to do so in the case of this beauty. I expected nice, but not THIS nice. Double decanted 4 hrs in advance. Dense reddish purple. A nice round nose of charbroiled meat, rich earth and a pleasant little dairy note. Solid. Medium to full bodied with good integration. Black cherry and blackberry with a mineral/earth/leather undertone. A very pleasant bite of acid followed by firm tannins and a long warm finish. Seems to be full of vigor for improvement in the next few years. I'll try to hold on to my last remaining bottle for a while, dispite my strong desire to pop it now. (10/18/2006)

Has dried cherry and berry aromas, with hints of flowers, following through to a full body, with silky tannins and a delicate finish. A little reserved, but theres lots of fresh fruit and racy acidity. Best after 2010. 14,160 cases made. -JS Moderately saturated medium red. Pure, floral aromas of redcurrant, smoky plum and minerals. Politely styled Brunello but with sneaky concentration to the pure red berry, almond, tobacco and mineral flavors. Finishes very long and seamless, conveying an almost saline sense of extract. Plenty of verve and definition here: I find it to be the best Brunello ever made by Antinori, by a long shot. Antinori's 2004 Brunello di Montalcino Pian delle Vigne is a sweet, perfumed offering. Medium in body, the wine offers up scents of tobacco, wild cherries, spices and flowers in an elegant, restrained style for this bottling. The silky, finessed tannins frame the fruit nicely and carry through all the way to the long finish. Anticip...
