Aromas of dried fruit, spice, mushroom and sage. Full body, ripe tannins and a flavorful finish. Classic 2013. Beautiful now. One for the cellar, too!

Alluring 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.

This 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... This 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. – BS

The 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. - Monica Larner

Good 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.

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. -- Ian D'Agata

It totals 184ha, which includes 65ha of vines sitting at 130-250 metres above sea level. The expression is somewhat exotic, with potpourri, spice and orange peel overlaying very ripe plum and cherry flavours. While the tannins are a bit chunky this is ready to go immediately, especially since it's missing some vibrancy that would take it further.

Antinori

The Antinori family has been involved in the production of wine since 1385 when Giovanni di Piero Antinori became a member of the “Arte Fiorentina”, the Winemakers’ Guild of the city of Florence. During this entire long period, through twenty six generations, the family has always directly managed this work with courageous and, at times, innovative decisions. But always while maintaining a fundamental respect for tradition and for the territory in which they have operated.

Estates currently under the Marchesi Antinori wine empire include Tignanello, Badia a Passignano, Guado Al Tasso, Castello della Sala, Pian Delle Vigne, Peppoli, and Montenisa. While the core of the family's properties and production are focused in Tuscany, additional properties have expanded their regional diversity to include Orvieto Classico and Franciacorta.

The Tenuta Tignanello estate is located between the Greve and Pesa river valleys in the heart of the Chianti Classico appellation. In these 127 hectares (320 acres) of vineyards, the Antinori family, more than anywhere else, has expressed its principles and working philosophy: reconcile tradition and modernity with wines which are strictly and authentically tied to their territories of origin. Solaia and Tignanello, the two iconic wines of the estate, have been defined by the international press as “among the most influential wines in the viticultural history of Italy” and are a constant symbol for the Antinori family of a continuous challenge, one driven by pure passion.

The Guado al Tasso estate is located approximately 50 miles (80 kilometers) to the southwest of the city of Florence, near the medieval hamlet of Bolgheri in the Upper Maremma. Once part of a fiefdom of some 4,048 hectares (over 10,000 acres), today the 1000 hectare/2500 acre property extends from the coast of the Tyrrhenian Sea to the inland hills, where the vineyards are cultivated on rocky and slightly calcareous soils. Of these, 300 are under vines which are planted to Vermentino, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, and Petit Verdot along with small quantities of other grape varieties. In the 1930’s this property was inherited by Carlotta Della Gherardesca who married into the Antinori family.

Today the firm is run by Marquis Piero Antinori with the support of his three daughters, Albiera, Allegra, and Alessia. Tradition, passion, and intuition have been the three driving principles which have led the Marquis Antinori firm to become a leader in Italian wine.
