    Winemaker's Notes:

    100% Sangiovese.
    Ruby red color with garnet hues. Aromatic and complex on the nose, with hints of spices, cherries, blackberries, light tobacco and pleasant chocolate undertones. Very full-bodied and broad on the palate, with an intense sweetness. Decisive but smooth, with elegant tannins and a long, persistent finish.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2005 Brunello di Montalcino is a gorgeous, classy offering laced with fragrant, mineral-infused red fruit, flowers and spices. This delicate, medium-bodied Brunello reveals outstanding length and a clean, refreshing finish. With time in the glass, the wine’s inner perfume emerges, adding even greater complexity. Antinori's 2005 Brunello is one of the successes of the vintage, particularly when one considers the large production in excess of 12,000 cases.

    The Wine Advocate

    Pian delle Vigne comes from vineyards planted in lower lands compared to many other Montalcino crus. This results in slightly higher temperatures during the growing season and thicker, sweeter wines. What it loses in complexity it gains in generous tones of sweet cherry, chocolate and spice. The wine's texture is round, rich and opulent.

    Offers subtle berry and raspberry on the nose, with floral and cherry notes. Full-bodied, with good fruit and a long, silky finish. A wine in harmony already. Best after 2010.

    Wine Spectator

    A solid wine, with a dense ripe fruit character on the palate. Round and velvety tannins. Fresh finish. I believe it needs another year or two of bottle age to come around.
