BRUNELLO DI MONTALCINO 2016 DOCG
Vintage Assessments Tasting Note Producer PIAN DELLE VIGNE
Fairly deep intense purple colour with a faint of amber on the edge . Intense, slightly spicy, complex, vanilla-stick-tinged, ripe plum nose with some sandalwood-red licorice notes. Dry, medium-full bodied, smooth albeit well structured, very slightly spicy, rather intense, complex, firm, ripe plum flavours with a lingering, cedar-tinged, sandalwood, mineral-driiven finish. Still a tad youthful, give 3-4 years to start opening up. This elegant 100% Sangiovese has 14% alcohol and 2 g/L residual sugar with lot number L9079 on the lower part of the glass bottle.

TASTING NOTE: 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 soona year or two to evolve. Has 14% alcohol and er in order to preserve the aromatic integrity of the vintage.
