The 2013 Pian della Vigne shows a brilliant ruby red color. The nose is delicate and complex with notes of ripe fruit, cherries, and plums, perfectly balanced with sensations of dried and candied fruit and spices. The palate is ample with supple tannins and is enlivened by a note of vibrant acidity with fully brings out the intense persistence and pleasure of its aromas. The finish offers hints of tobacco, dark chocolate, and berry fruit. An extremely elegant and bracingly savory wine of great finesse.

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.

Wine AdvocateThe 2013 Brunello di Montalcino Pian delle Vigne shows a level of increased volume and texture that appears less frequently in its peers. This wine has always marched to its own drumbeat, and this newest release is no exception. A warmer microclimate characterizes the spot where these vineyards are located, and the fruit is opulent, ripe and exuberant as a result. The Antinori house style also comes through, and the wine has a more contemporary or international outlook as a result. What I really want to say is that Pian delle Vigne shows great results in this vintage. The Pian is back.

VinousGood deep red-ruby. Red and dark berries, roast coffee, peony and game on the nose. Rich and pliant on the palate, showing considerable tannins yet coming across as rather gentle in style. The juicy red and blue fruit flavors and sweet spice notes linger nicely on the long finish, complicated by underbrush and game. Not the most concentrated or complex Brunello you'll ever taste, but this lovely wine offers earlier appeal than most.
