Antinori Brunello di Montalcino 'Pian delle Vigne' 2006 - 3 Litre Bottle

Product description

Intense ruby red in colour with garnet hues. The nose offers complex aromas of red fruit and spice along with hints of tobacco and chocolate. On the palate, the wine is full, broad and well-balanced with a very long finish.

95 Points - James Suckling

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.

93 Points - Wine Spectator

A glycerol-like texture joins licorice and menthol notes to lend this red 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. Fine, mineral aftertaste. Best from 2012 through 2025. 1,500 cases imported.
