    ($65) Saturated full ruby. Brooding, primary aromas of berries, black cherry and licorice. Dense, lush and seamless, with nicely integrated acidity giving shape to the youthfully medicinal dark berry, black cherry and mint flavors. Rather backward today and not yet showing its complexity, but likely to reward eight or ten years of cellaring. Finishes firmly tannic, supple and long. (Remy-Amerique, New York)

    Dark crimson. Intense, complex, classic nose. Very serious. Spicy nose and sweet start to the palate. Zesty and full of pleasure without being heavy or sickly. Fine tannins intrude only at the very end. Really refreshing.

    It was only a matter of time before Antinori achieved outstanding results at their estate in Montalcino, and the 1999 Brunello di Montalcino is the wine they were obviously hoping for when they purchased the property in 1995. A rich ruby with light garnet highlights, the powerful and expressive nose of red fruit, herbs, and leather is matched by an equally important palate, of major intensity and concentration, warm and round with impressively defined Sangiovese fruit and much complexity on the lengthy, and intense finish.

    Superfruity and clean style of Brunello with loads of crushed fruit on the nose and palate. Full-bodied, with well-integrated tannins and a long, caressing finish. Designer Brunello.

    Nothing to write home about. Kind of flat. Others liked it more than me. I would have scored at an 87.

Although the Antinori family has been making wine for over 600 years and is steeped in tradition, they haven't been afraid to modernize production and to take an innovative approach to blending. One result is the world famous Super Tuscan "Tignanello," a blend of Sangiovese (85%), Cabernet Sauvignon (10%), and Cabernet Franc (5%). Marchesi Piero Antinori is the current proprietor of the estate, and was instrumental in creating Tignanello, propelling the popularity of Super Tuscans worldwide.

Antinori produces wines from the Italian regions of Tuscany and Umbria. In addition to Tignanello, some of Antinori's most well-known wines include Solaia, Guado al Tasso, Campo di Sasso, Badia a Passignano, Pian delle Vigne, and Chianti Classico. Antinori's various estates include 1,400 hectares of vineyards planted in Bolgheri, Montalcino, Orvieto, Montepulciano, and Chianti Classico, as well as the emerging locales Sovana and southern Maremma.
