    Wine Advocate Notes
    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 Notes
    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
    Wine Spectator Notes
    93 Points, Bruce Sanderson, Wine Spectator: "A mix of cherry and berry fruit and wild herbs mark this red, whose texture starts out smooth before tannins turn aggressive on the finish. There is a lingering aftertaste of cherry, iron, earth and tobacco. Best from 2024 through 2042. 4,200 cases imported." 06/21
    Wine Enthusiast Notes
    95 points, Kerin O’Keefe, Wine Enthusiast: “This has an expressive nose offering aromas of ripe red berry, violet, star anise and coffee bean. Elegantly structured, the linear palate features mature black cherry, blood orange, ground clove and espresso alongside taut, fine-grained tannins that leave a firm finish. Give it several years to fully develop. Drink 2026–2036.Cellar Selection.” 03/21

    95 Points, Luca Gardini, Gardini Notes: From Pian delle Vigne, the Montalcino’s vineyard bought in 1995, another astonishing brick in the Antinori’s production. On the nose, sour cherries, floral and ‘wild’ touches from fresh laurel, with traces of eucalyptus. The mouth is both crispy and taut with salty tannins ending on fruity aftertaste. "
