Antinori Brunello di Montalcino Pian delle Vigne 2013
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Brunello di Montalcino|
Wine EnthusiastAlluring scents of sweet pipe tobacco, baking spice, violet and baked plum abound in this fragrant red. Elegantly structured, the bright, polished palate offers Marasca cherry, raspberry compote and licorice framed by well-knit, silky tannins. Fresh acidity keeps it balanced. It's already tempting but the best is yet to come. Drink 2021-2028.
Wine SpectatorThis is concentrated and densely structured, offering cherry, plum, chocolate, leather, earth and tobacco flavors. Starts out fluid, turning a bit lean and chewy on the finish, yet stays long, so give this a few years. Best from 2023 through 2037.
