Antinori Pian Delle Vigne Rosso di Montalcino 2015

Winemaker's Notes:

The climate of the 2015 vintage was characterized by a winter with abundant precipitations which assisted the accumulation of good reserves of ground water in the soil before the arrival of a mild spring and a hot summer. The harvest took place in optimum climatic conditions – north winds and a temperate climate assisted a positive ripening of the grapes and an important thickness in the skins, helping to create wines rich in aroma and body.A brilliant ruby red in color, the wine offers sensations rich in fruity aromas of cherries and raspberries well integrated with the light notes of oak. On the palate, the wine is ample and enveloping with supple and silky tannins vigor, and persistent on the flow and finish.Winery Notes

Villa Antinori is a prominent wine estate in Tuscany, Italy. Wine has been produced by the Antinori family since they came to Florence in the 14th century. The family estate, Palazzo Antinori, was purchased in Tuscany in 1506, and later that century, banker and merchant Alessandro Antinori began to produce the wines made there commercially. Generations later, in 1928, Marquis Niccolò Antinori officially created the Villa Antinori brand, with the intention of producing an elegant Chianti fit for longevity. The wine was soon found in the cellars and on the tables of of some of the most prestigious houses, restaurants and hotels. In 1931, Villa Antinori began producing a white wine from Trebbiano, and in the 1980s, Chardonnay was added to the blend for elegance. In 2001, the estate added the production of Super Tuscans to their growing portfolio. In addition to table wines, Villa Antinori also produces sparkling wines, grappa and olive oil.  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)

Powerful bouquet with cherry, coffee and hints of chocolate and oak. The palate is full with fresh rounded tannins, really fruity and thick. Lingering finish. Needs a few years in the bottle. Tasted 11/07

Antinori's Pian Delle Vigne is unique single estate in Montalcino. The estate is located 3.5 miles south of Montalcino and takes its name from a historic 19th century railroad located on the property. The estate consists of approximately 165 acres of vines with a predominantly southeastern exposure and altitude up to 660 feet above sea level. The calcareous clay soil is rich in gravel which provides good drainage. For this Brunello yields are kept extremely low with a green harvest in July. Only the healthiest grape bunches are nurtured to full ripeness. Handpicking is followed by de-stemming and a fifteen day temperature controlled fermentation. The wine is aged in traditional large oak casks allowing the Sangiovese full expression. Wine Spectator scored this 94 points saying "The sweet cherry and raspberry flavors set the pace for this supple, charming Brunello. Leather, tobacco, earth and iron accents add complexity as this cruises to a terrific finish. Feels more open, yet this should develop well. Best from 2020 through 2033." and James Suckling also gave it a 94 point score saying "A soft and silky red with plum, chocolate and light coffee character. Medium to full body, well-integrated tannins and a fruity and fresh finish. Drink in 2018."

Antinori’s Pian Delle Vigne is unique single estate in Montalcino. The estate is located 3.5 miles south of Montalcino and takes its name from a historic 19th century railroad located on the property. The estate consists of approximately 165 acres of vines with a predominantly southeastern exposure and altitude up to 660 feet above sea level. The calcareous clay soil is rich in gravel which provides good drainage. A careful selection of the finest grapes, carried out as early as the month of July during the so-called “crop-thinning” phase and before the harvest as well, left only superior bunches for picking on the vines. The destemmed and crushed grapes were fermented for fifteen days in stainless steel tanks at temperatures held to a maximum of 81° Fahrenheit (27° centigrade). The wine then went through a complete malolactic fermentation and was aged in oak casks with a capacity ranging from 800 to 2100 gallons (3000-8000 liters) for more than two years. After aging, the wine was bottled during the second half of January of 2013 and released on Spring 2014. For this Brunello yields are kept extremely low with a green harvest in July. Only the healthiest grape bunches are nurtured to full ripeness. Handpicking is followed by de-stemming and a fifteen day temperature controlled fermentation.

James Suckling scored this 2010 96 points saying "Lots of candied-orange, dark-fruit and dried-flower character on the nose. Full body with soft, silky tannins and a chewy finish. Funky and intense. Lots of smoked-meat, berry and dark-chocolate character. Very rich and delicious. Best Brunello from here in a long time. Try in 2016."

It’s already showing character and expression along with very supple tannins. The Wine Advocate called it “a plump, fruit-forward style” and James Suckling admits “I love to drink it already.". He scored it 94 points and said “A wine with lots of plum and orange-peel character. It's rich and exotic. Full body with gorgeous fruit and a long, long finish. So much going on here. I love to drink it already."

The Antinori family's Brunello estate has seen ups and downs in terms of wine consistency over the past five years. But 2008 delivers an honest and nicely concentrated expression that seems to benefit beautifully from the slightly warmer temperatures in its lower altitude vineyards. Dark chocolate, cherry fruit and barbecue spice appear on the finish. - M.L. Floral and raspberry aromas and flavors pick up tobacco, soy and briar components in this intense, wiry red. Lean, yet remains persistent and well-balanced, leaving a trail of spice and mineral accents. Best from 2016 through 2032. 1,750 cases imported. -BS (14% alcohol): Vivid medium-dark red. Peach, candied red cherry and underbrush on the forward nose. Large-scaled and almost fat on entry, then lively acidity frames the fleshy red cherry and redcurrant jelly flavors, with complicating notes of spicy black pepper and aromatic herbs adding depth. The finish is chewy, long and noticeably...

The finish is chewy, long and noticeably peppery. This young wine strikes me as a major success in the vintage, and it is likely to improve further. Well done. - Stephan Tanzer 90+ PointsAntinoris 2008 Brunello di Montalcino Pian delle Vigne is loaded with super-ripe dark cherries, plums, incense, hard candy, kirsch, tobacco and smoke. A rich, layered Brunello, the 2008 comes across as a bit forced in the cellar, with copious French oak and a level of sweetness that is distracting. Pian delle Vigne remains a bit of a work in progress within the Antinori portfolio. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2023. - Robert Parker 88 Points
