Antinori Pian Delle Vigne Rosso Di Montalcino 2018
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Rosso di Montalcino|
The aromatics are dark at first, showing crushed black cherry and plum, yet opening to reveal sweet herbs and tobacco, with moist soil and hints of worn leather. On the palate, silky textures flood the senses with a mix of black and red berry fruits, enlivened by brisk acids, as sweet spices and minerals settle in. The finish is long, with a dark, alluring sweetness, as notes of spiced-black cherry and sweet floral tones slowly fade. There is a balance and sheer enjoyability factor to the 2018 Pian delle Vigne Rosso that's impossible to ignore.
Aromas of wild berry and a whiff of ground clove form the subtle nose. On the fresh palate, notes of vanilla and star anise back up a juicy core of Morello cherry while polished tannins give smooth support. Drink through 2023.
