Pian delle Vigne Antinori Brunello di Montalcino 2008

Pian delle Vigne Antinori Brunello di Montalcino 750ML 2008        
Sku: 50228

Deep ruby red; complex on the nose. Full-structured and velvety, with rich perfumes and hints of flowers, vanilla and chocolate. Well structured and balance with a lengthy finish.

100 % Sangiovese (locally called "Brunello")

 Wine Advocate 88 points (Jun 2013)
Antinori?s 2008 Brunello di Montalcino Pian delle Vigne is loaded with super-ripe dark cherries, plums, incense, hard candy, kirsch, tobacco and smoke. A rich, layered Brunello, the 2008 comes across as a bit forced in the cellar, with copious French oak and a level of sweetness that is distracting. Pian delle Vigne remains a bit of a work in progress within the Antinori portfolio. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2023.
 Wine Spectator 91 points (Mar 27 2013)
Floral and raspberry aromas and flavors pick up the tobacco, soy and briar components in this intense, wiry red. Though lean, this remains persistent and well-balanced, leaving a trail of spice and mineral accents. Best from 2016 through 2032.óB.S.

Wine maker notes
Ruby red colour with garnet hues. Complex generous nose with mature aromas of cherries, red berries, tobacco and hints of coffee and cocoa powder. Multilayered structure with nicely balanced soft tannins, elegant fruit leading to a very lingering finish.
