2012 Antinori Pian Delle Vigne Vignaferrovia Brunello Di Montalcino Riserva
The 2012 Vignaferrovia shows an intense ruby red color. The nose offers, initially, notes of wild cherries, ripe black fruit, and red currants then balanced by supplementary balsamic and spicy sensations. The palate is rich and full and character by well integrated velvety tannins. The long and persistent finish is marked by hints of spices, fruit under spirits, and chocolate and given a further complexity and vigor by a light and delicate vein of acidity.
This is round, offering cherry, plum and savory, salty mineral elements. The structure is well-meshed, lending support while remaining harmonious. Almost feels approachable now, but this will be better in two to three years. Best from 2021 through 2035. – 94 points, Wine Spectator
