Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 94/100 with the following review:

Delicious and decadent, Antinori Pian Delle Vigne Brunello Di Montalcino really delivers. Made from 100% Sangiovese. Medium garnet brick colour. Medium intensity aromas of dried, and stewed fruit, chocolate covered cherries, dried black cherries, and maple syrup elements of richness on the nose. Flavours are broad, full and complex. Baked cherries, dark chocolate, grilled red peppers, cola and tootsie rolls! This balances elegantly with medium plus acidity, body, tannins and a lengthy finish. Well rounded, robust and refined. Enjoy with coconut shrimp curry or roasted rosemary leg of lamb and sauteed mushrooms. 94 points tasted October 2017

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
