More information on wine critics and ratings
A Brunello that combines typical structure and con- siderable body with unusual harmony, balance and el- egance. The colour is an intense ruby red. Generous complex aromas of flowers, vanilla and cocoa powder. Excellent length and good balance, with a generously structured, full and velvety palate.
History of Antinori In 1385, the Antinori family became part of the wine business when Giovanni di Piero Antinori joined the Florentine Vintner's Guild. Since 1966, Marchese Piero Antinori, son of Marchese Niccolò, has run the company with his daughters, Albiera, Allegra and Alessia, also playing an active role. For more than 26 generations now, Antinori's philosophy has been based on the combination of both tradition and innovation: to preserve Italy's enological… Read more

James Suckling (JS) : 93 Points (2017)
Aromas of sweet cherries, flowers and dried orange peel follow through to a full body, yet it’s linear, tight and tense, with refined, polished tannins that frame the wine nicely. Give it a couple of years to come together.

Wine Enthusiast (WE) : 92 Points (2017)
This opens with balsamic aromas of camphor and crushed mint that mingle with ripe black-skinned fruit and coconut. Full-bodied and already rather accessible, the smooth, concentrated palate offers dried cherry, licorice and espresso alongside enveloping, fine-grained tannins.

Wine Spectator (WS) : 91 Points (2017)
This red delivers a nice contrast between fruity and savory elements, offering cherry and plum flavors matched by loam, sage and soy notes that are backed by solid, chalky tannins. Compact on the finish for now. Best from 2025 through 2040.

Robert Parker (RP) : 93 Points (2016)
This is a wine to watch, thanks to some exciting new changes to come. The Antinori family purchased new vineyards located at the highest point in the appellation at the romantically named Passo del Lume Spento (Pass of the Extinguished Lantern) where higher altitudes make for cooler growing conditions. This new acquisition complements the estate's current holdings in Pian delle Vigne (translated as the "flatlands of vines") located at much warmer lower elevations with heavier reddish soils. That means future vintages (wines to come after the 2018 Brunello that is already in bottle as I write this) may see a blend of fruit from the two sites, giving the winemaking team much more latitude to blend from both cool and warm parcels. Or the Passo del Lume Spento fruit could end up in its own single-vineyard bottling. It will be interesting to see how the estate uses its new fruit and its new winery.

Decanter (DCT) : 93 Points (2012)
Warm, spicy, brambled fruit aromas lead to a full, firmly-structured yet juicy palate with powerful fruit flowing onto a long, nervy finish. Will improve further.

Wines & Spirits (W&S) : 90 Points (2011)
Flavors of black and red cherry feel juicy and fleshy, showing good freshness for the warm 2011 vintage. Those fruit flavors gain richness after a few hours, taking on notes of black spice, wild herbs and a roasted mushroom earthiness. The tannins feel pliant and chewy, ready to complement beef tenderloin seasoned with a dried porcini rub.Ste. Michelle Wine Estates, Woodinville, WA

Vinous (Antonio Galloni) (VN) : 88+ Points (2011)
Feb 2016 - Antonio Galloni - Antinori's 2011 Brunello di Montalcino is one of the sweeter, richer wine of the vintage. A blast of super-ripe fruit proves to be short-lived as the wine's intensity tapers off on the mid-palate and finish. Macerated cherry, spice, hard candy and licorice all meld together in this decidedly forward, succulent Brunello. Elevated alcohol and pronounced sweetness are both distracting.

Il Matarocchio was inspired by the desire to create, at the Guado al Tasso estate, a wine that was the maximum expression both of a single grape variety and a single vineyard plot. Il Matarocchio was born precisely from one of these sites and is a wine of great elegance and depth, one which springs exclusively from its source of origin and from a remarkable vintage.

Cont’Ugo is produced entirely with Merlot as a new interpretation of the Bolgheri territory. The vineyards grow at an altitude that varies between 45 and 60 meters (147/196 feet) above sea level on clay-loam soils that are of alluvial origin that give the wine deep complex notes while preserving the fragrance and freshness typical of Merlot berries.
