96 pts - Antonio Galloni
The Antinori’s Brunello di Montalcino is produced exclusively from Sangiovese grapes. This wine is a proof that you don’t have to spend hundreds of dollars to buy a world class wine.
It is a brilliant ruby red in colour with garnet highlights, the wine shows a complex and intense nose with spicy and balsamic notes which fully fuse with aromas of raspberries, cherries, and ripe plums together with light suggestions of tobacco and leather. On the palate the wine is ample and enveloping with a silky texture and an intense progression of flavours across the palate (fleshy red cherry and redcurrant jelly flavours, with complicating notes of spicy black pepper and aromatic herbs) which bring out all the elegant and varietal personality of the wine, true and outstanding in its expression of Sangiovese character. The finish is chewy, long and noticeably peppery. Drink now – 2030.
