    Poggiarellino is a tiny estate, this year’s total wine production is 583 cases, yes that’s tiny and it is only by chance and spending a lot of time in Montalcino on the ground that chance meetings can happen. That’s why K&L is so unique we bring tiny gems that would be lost to the market or somewhere else at 50% more expensive. In the 2012 vintage there is a powerful statement of place and for Poggiarellino and that is manifested in the marasca cherry that wild and gamey Italian cherry that sends surreal aromatics, it's haunting, inviting, and seductive, it’s that incredibly complex aroma that you adore it in your Manhattans. On the palate you sense the ripeness of the vintage, not over-ripe but definitely with a hint of chocolate and plums it is a dense aromatically and like the vintage that richness is balanced by excellent structure underneath, this vintage shows far more complexity, layers of spice, distinct mineral components and a truly dramatic and long-lasting finish where the spice and mineral go on forever than the really drinkable 2011. In the mouth the wine is electric- it has a real, vibrant core that drives the wine the length of your palate with a lush, dense coating yet it never hesitates to be forceful and compelling. This is a wine that is capable of aging 15-20 years easily yet balanced and rich enough to drink now!
    Drink from 2017 to 2030
