    91Antinori Pian delle Vigne (Red)

    Dark mahogany, Scented cedar and red berry fruit. Long firm concentrated body and very high acidity, firm tannins, mouthwatering, intense and concentrated with lightness and elegance. Dark fruit. Intense cedar, chocolate, vanilla, coffee, herbal, garrigue. It's ever so slightly soupy on the palate, with deep barely mineral plummy tannins. Acidity and fruit take a back seat. It's really nice, but it lacks the beautiful balance of the Caprili. I think it was just big and jammy when young, and has only improved since then.
