External Reviews for Antinori Pian Delle Vigne Brunello di Montalcino
It was only a matter of time before Antinori achieved outstanding results at their estate in Montalcino, and the 1999 Brunello di Montalcino is the wine they were obviously hoping for when they purchased the property in 1995. A rich ruby with light garnet highlights, the powerful and expressive nose of red fruit, herbs, and leather is matched by an equally important palate, of major intensity and concentration, warm and round with impressively defined Sangiovese fruit and much complexity on the lengthy, and intense finish. A nod of recognition is due here to the efforts of Fabio Ratti, the young director-winemaker, whose modesty, unlike many of his colleagues, is in direct proportion to his talents. Drink: 2005ndash;2018.
Superfruity and clean style of Brunello with loads of crushed fruit on the nose and palate. Full-bodied, with well-integrated tannins and a long, caressing finish. Designer Brunello. Best after 2005.
Saturated full ruby. Brooding, primary aromas of berries, black cherry and licorice. Dense, lush and seamless, with nicely integrated acidity giving shape to the youthfully medicinal dark berry, black cherry and mint flavors. Rather backward today and not yet showing its complexity, but likely to reward eight or ten years of cellaring. Finishes firmly tannic, supple and long.
