Antinori Pian Delle Vigne Rosso Di Montalcino 2019
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Rosso di Montalcino|
The 2019 Pian delle Vigne Rosso di Montalcino wafts up with an intense display of peppery florals and crushed stone, giving way to masses of black cherry, hints of cocoa and sweet tobacco. The textures are silky and pliant, cast across a medium-bodied frame with ripe red and black berries, wrapped in a web of minerals and rounded tannins which slowly unfurl, making for a tactile feel of youthful tension. This is impressively long and structured for the category, but with primary fruit to match. Antinori really knocked it out of the park with their 2019 Rosso.
An opulent, forthcoming style, from its initial cherry and kirsch fruit to the leather and black pepper elements. Balanced and broad, with a firm, savory finish. Best from 2022 through 2028. 1,500 cases imported.
