Antinori Pian delle Vigne Brunello di Montalcino 1997

Montalcino, Siena, Tuscany, ItalyBought in 1985 and now replanting part of the vineyard with improved sangiovese clones as well as a new cellar. Spicy, sweaty, game, pepper, black cherry cassis and licorice aromas. Ripe, round and elegant with softer tannins for mid-term aging. Nice cherry, licorice, earth, peppery, plum jam and vanilla flavours. A very polished, balanced style that will appeal to many and should improve.Tasted: 01 March 2000Tasted by: Stuart TobePrices: BC 55.00 Producer: Marchesi AntinoriDistributors: Mark Anthony Wines and Spirits
