Wine Advocate

93 Points, Monica Larner, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Marchesi Antinori 2016 Brunello di Montalcino Pian delle Vigne takes us back to a classic profile for the estate in which you perceive an open and approachable bouquet. This is textbook Pian delle Vigne. The wine's foundations are rooted in ripeness with dried cherry and blackberry, and there are earthy notes with some powdery licorice and iron ore. Pian delle Vigne performs nicely in the celebrated 2016 vintage; however, this wine remains far more accessible than its peers, and I suggest a near to medium-term drinking window as a result. It was racked out of barrel and went into glass sooner in order to preserve the aromatic integrity of the vintage. Prioritizing glass over barrel aging is a trend we are seeing across the appellation. Some 190,000 bottles were made." 05/21

Vinous Media

93 points, Eric Guido, Vinous Media: “The 2016 Pian delle Vigne Brunello di Montalcino from Antinori is dark and rich, displaying notes of brown spice, mocha and tobacco, before giving way to musky black cherries and sage. Its cooling, creamy textures usher in a dense wave of ripe red and hints of black fruit, with salty minerals and fine-grained tannins providing grip. Licorice and violets resonate, along with inner earth tones throughout the long and structured finish...it is well worth the wait.” 11/20

James Suckling

93 Points, James Suckling, www.jamesuckling.com: "Cherry, plum and cedar aromas follow through to a medium to full body with integrated, polished tannins that are fine and pretty. ...shows interest and focus. Try after 2023." 11/20
