1999 Antinori "Pian delle Vigne" Brunello di Montalcino

SKU #1011216 93 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Lovely, with its own version of perfume exuding from the glass. Additional rose and berry notes lead to a silky palate featuring prune, flourless chocolate torte and coffee. The back end is tighter and heavier than the front, which bodes well for its future. Made in the modern style. (MS) Inner quote mark (6/2004)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Cooked fruit, with blackberry jam and an earthy undertone. Full-bodied, with supersoft and velvety tannins. Very ripe and rich, with a long finish. There's so much fruit. Almost Porty. (JS, Web-2010) Inner quote mark

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 1999 Brunello di Montalcino Pian delle Vigne opens to a black, inky color and super concentration that adds weight and consistency to the palate. Pian delle Vigne is very obviously executed in an international style with etched oak tones paired next to overtly jammy fruit. With time, this wine has also developed a mature tertiary bouquet with spiced beef jerky, mesquite wood and barbecue smoke. The aromas are so strong, they are almost too much to take in at once. There’s no denying however that the wine boasts solid foundations and good construction. What it lacks is the softer definition and lighter nuances of Brunello. It gives more of a bang, than it does a whimper. Decant for up to four hours. (ML) Inner quote mark (2/2014)

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Saturated full ruby. Brooding, primary aromas of berries, black cherry and licorice. Dense, lush and seamless, with nicely integrated acidity giving shape to the youthfully medicinal dark berry, black cherry and mint flavors. Rather backward today and not yet showing its complexity, but likely to reward eight or ten years of cellaring. Finishes firmly tannic, supple and long. (ST) Inner quote mark (9/2004)

Decanter

Outer quote mark Sweet, ripe, juicy fruit overlaid with peppery, spicy tones and plenty of oak. Full, rich with dense but supple tannins and intense core of black fruits. Inner quote mark (11/2004)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Dark crimson. Intense, complex, classic nose. Very serious. Spicy nose and sweet start to the palate. Zesty and full of pleasure without being heavy or sickly. Fine tannins intrude only at the very end. Really refreshing. 18/20 points. Inner quote mark (9/2009)
