This is a truly super Brunello from Poggio di Soto and probably its best ever. It shows decadence yet class and subtlety that only the great 2010 vintage can give it. Full body, ultra-fine tannins and layers of berries, plums, peaches and cedar. The finish lasts for minutes. Why wait on this? Open it and enjoy the magic.
*Cellar Selection* Stunning and fragrant, this elegantly structured wine opens with a fragrance of pressed violet, perfumed red berry, leather, white pepper and a whiff of mint. The vibrant, silky palate offers black raspberry, wild cherry, cinnamon and licorice alongside firm, refined tannins and bright acidity. It's loaded with finesse and already has great depth but hold for more complexity. (KO)
The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino opens slowly and gracefully before it shows its full potential. This slow moving bouquet is a beautiful quality that is shared by many of the best wines from this stellar vintage. Once it gets started, this Brunello offers wild berry, graphite, tar and balsam herb tones that are direct and focused. This wine is steady and sure. It also reveals balanced acidity that adds to the length and the polished feel that this wine majestically projects. This vintage from Poggio di Sotto should evolve at a slow pace for the next 10-15 years. (ML)
he 2010 Brunello di Montalcino is in no mood to show all its cards today. This is a decidedly dark, brooding Brunello for Poggio di Sotto. In 2010, the fruit is quite dark, which suggests a late harvest, perhaps pushed to the limit. At the same time, there is plenty of underlying structure and tannin. This is going to be a fascinating Brunello to follow over the next two decades or so, but readers should expect a wine that is stylistically a bit of a departure. (AG)
This ripe version is full of macerated cherry, raspberry and kirsch flavors that are accented by notes of leather and spice. Reveals a hint of acetone, but this has character and a sweet fruit element that carries through the long, taut finish. (BS)
