Wine Advocate (WA) Review

WA 93
It was only a matter of time before Antinori achieved outstanding results at their estate in Montalcino, and the 1999 Brunello di Montalcino is the wine they were obviously hoping for when they purchased the property in 1995. A rich ruby with light garnet highlights, the powerful and expressive nose of red fruit, herbs, and leather is matched by an equally important palate, of major intensity and concentration, warm and round with impressively defined Sangiovese fruit and much complexity on the lengthy, and intense finish. A nod of recognition is due here to the efforts of Fabio Ratti, the young director-winemaker, whose modesty, unlike many of his colleagues, is in direct proportion to his talents. Drink: 2005-2018.-Daniel Thomases

Wine Spectactor (WS) Review

Superfruity and clean style of Brunello with loads of crushed fruit on the nose and palate. Full-bodied, with well-integrated tannins and a long, caressing finish. Designer Brunello. Best after 2005. 15,000 cases made.
