Antinori Brunello di Montalcino Pian delle Vigne 2018
This has an expressive nose offering aromas of ripe red berry, violet, star anise and coffee bean. Elegantly structured, the linear palate features mature black cherry, blood orange, ground clove and espresso alongside taut, fine-grained tannins that leave a firm finish. Give it several years to fully develop. Drink 2026-2036.
A generous red, where ripe cherry, raspberry, plum, iron and rose hip aromas and flavors abound. Juicy and balanced, with a solid base of tannins underneath. A fine expression, this is balanced and persistent on the finish. Best from 2025 through 2043. 14,500 cases made, 1,500 cases imported.
