Pian delle Vigne Brunello di Montalcino 2014

750 mL bottle  |   VINTAGES#:  651141

Bright red. Delicate nuances of quince and poached pear complement perfumed violet and lily of the valley aromas on the enticingly pure, almost aromatic nose. Then delicate flavors of almond kernel, raspberry and minerals on the tangy, piquant, lusciously fresh palate. More raspberry notes repeat on the nicely perfumed, lingering finish. An outstanding Brunello, in fact one of the better ones from Antinori in years; I especially like it because it just goes with the flow of the year rather than trying too hard to extract what could not be obtained from this weather-challenged vintage. Lovely stuff; well done. Drinking window: 2021-2028. Score - 92. (Ian D'Agata, vinous.com, March 2019)
