Vintage: 2016

Producer: Marchesi Antinori

The Antinori family has been making wine for over six hundred years since Giovanni di Piero Antinori became part of the Arte Fiorentina dei Vinattieri in 1385. Throughout its long history, spanning 26 generations, the family has always personally managed the business making innovative, sometimes courageous choices, always with unwavering respect for tradition and the land. Today Marchese Piero Antinori is director of the company, assisted by his three daughters, Albiera, Allegra and Alessia, who are personally involved in the business. The qualities of tradition, passion, and instinct have made Antinori one of the leading Italian producers of fine quality wines. Every vintage, every terroir, every idea is a new beginning, a new quest to raise our quality margins. As Marchese Piero loves to repeat: “ancient roots play an important role in our philosophy, but they have never held back our spirit of innovation”. As well as the family’s traditional heritage of estates in Tuscany and Umbria, investments have been made over time in other areas highly suited to quality wine production, in Italy and abroad, in a quest to promote new terroirs, rich in winegrowing potential.

Climate: The 2016 growing season began with little rainfall during the winter months and mild springtime temperatures. These climatic conditions prompted bud break and flowering slightly earlier than expected, but vine growth evened out with fruit set that occurred normally. Summer climate trends, cooler than in 2015, were dominated by higher than average seasonal temperatures especially in the months of July and August. Light rainfall during the month of September and the resulting lower temperatures allowed the grapes to progress to optimal ripeness, enhancing Sangiovese’s freshness while imparting soft balanced tannins. Grapes for Brunello di Montalcino were harvested at the end of September.

Tasting Notes: Pian delle Vigne is an intense ruby red color. On the nose complex aromas of ripe red fruit, cherries in particular, perfectly blend with light floral notes. Its bouquet is completed by hints of chocolate, tobacco, cloves and aromatic and balsamic herbs. The 2016 vintage expresses great finesse and elegance giving the wine excellent freshness accompanied by soft tannins and an extraordinary lengthy finish. Initial notes of tobacco and spices reappear in the finish.
