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.
The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Pian delle Vigne is a well-built wine that shows the muscular side of this celebrated star of Tuscan winemaking. The Brunello opens to a thick, dark appearance with shapely aromas of dark cherry, plum, blackberry, leather dark chocolate and spice. The winemaking is impeccable, if rather stylized in terms of oak and fruit maturity. The aim here is to produce a wine the oozes softness and richness and this goal has been abundantly achieved. Pian delle Vigne is a Brunello that will excel in both the near and long term. (ML)
Broad and savory, with leather, licorice and spice notes leading the submerged cherry and plum fruit. This is well-balanced, showing more power than elegance and finishing long. Best from 2018 through 2032.
Antinori's 2010 Brunello di Montalcino is a highly representative wine from the Camigliano district. Soft, fruity and open, the 2010 will drink well early and hold for another decade or so. This is a decidedly round, succulent Brunello with considerable immediacy. (AG)
Fleshy dark-skinned fruit, vanilla, underbrush, leather and eucalyptus aromas lead the nose. The round, chewy palate offers mature black cherry, game, anisette and plum cake alongside velvety tannins. It’s already surprisingly accessible. Enjoy through 2022.
