Reviews for 2006 Antinori Brunello di Montalcino Pian delle Vigne

James Suckling - jamessuckling.com, January 2011
Flowers and citrus fruit galore on the nose. Opens to white truffles and plums. Full bodied with chewy tannins and dried fruits. Goes from rustic to class. Give it bottle age to mellow. Best since 1997. Best after 2012.

A glycerol-like texture joins licorice and menthol notes to lend this red an air of maturity with a core of cherry and raspberry fruit. This is beautifully balanced though the tannins will be even smoother in a few years...

The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino Pian delle Vigne is one of the more open accessible wines of the vintage. Dried red cherries flowers tobacco spices and herbs are some of the notes that emerge from this attractive fleshy Brunello. In 2006 the Pian delle Vigne is especially elegant silky and refined with gorgeous textural elegance and lovely overall balance. The Pian delle Vigne was fermented in stainless steel and spent 24 months in oak prior to being bottled. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2018.

With air this becomes quite rich on the nose, and more fruit driven. Very concentrated and extracted on the palate, very modern, but with depth, and with lots of slightly drying tannins giving it a serious edge. 17/20 (WS)
