  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 90

    ($65) Red-ruby. Musky aromas of dark cherry, earth, mocha and game. Dense, lively and a tad reduced, with focused flavors of dark berries, dark cherry, leather, cola, menthol and minerals. Finishes with substantial tongue-coating tannins that avoid coming off as hard. This boasts very good extract and weight, but I'm not sure I would have picked it as sangiovese. (Ste. Michelle Wine Estates, Woodinville, WA)

    Antinori's 2001 Brunello di Montalcino Pian delle Vigne presents a dark expression of Sangiovese. This deeply-colored Brunello is made in a round, supple style with dark cherries, violets, tobacco and earthiness. It offers notable concentration in a fairly international style, with building but finessed tannins on the finish.

    Aromas of exotic fruit with cherry, coffee and toasted oak. Full-bodied and verging on jammy, but rich, opulent and fruity. Round tannins. Slightly one-dimensional.

    Black cherry with some currant notes, but pretty much one dimensional. Disappointed really.

    Not really sure what to think about this wine. Good, drank well, not sure if it is a winner.

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.
