Pian Delle Vigne Antinori Brunello di Montalcino 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

An intense ruby red with garnet highlights, the aromas of the Brunello Pian delle Vigne 2007 show red fruit and spices which fuse harmoniously with tobacco and chocolate. On the palate it is a wine of great balance, with lively mineral notes supported by vibrant tannins which accompany the flavors elegantly during the entire tasting sequence.

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

The nose showed ripe berries, wood tones and spice with a hint of undergrowth. On the palate, it was lush with sour red berries and mountain herbs. The finish was long and mouth coating.

Rich, yet sleek, delivering cherry, raspberry, floral and spice flavors, vivid acidity and refined tannins for support. Turns elegant and almost ethereal on the long aftertaste. Best from 2014 through 2025. 1,700 cases imported. -BS Antinori's 2007 Brunello di Montalcino Pian delle Vigne flows across the palate with sweet red cherries, flowers, spices, leather and tobacco, all of which come together in a rich, sensual style. The aromas and flavors are just a touch forward, suggesting the 2007 is likely to be a relatively early-maturing wine. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2022. Bramble and forest floor, cherry cola and savory bresaola notes amount to pretty aromatics with less bulkiness in the mouth. The structure is there but this wine is a bit dry, sharp and less fleshy than many others. - M.L.
