Il Poggione’s 2001 Brunello di Montalcino opens with a very distinctive nose redolent of scorched earth, tobacco and cherries initially showing a wilder side of Sangiovese in its hints of gaminess. It is full-bodied and structured on the palate, where it offers plenty of fruit, with considerable length as well as big, potent tannins. This backward, hulking Brunello is in need of considerable cellaring and is clearly built for the long haul. It is a wine of great personality and character. (AG)
Deep red-ruby. Red berries, spicy oak, menthol and woodsy underbrush on the nose; very sangiovese. Broad and vinous, with lovely sweetness to the flavors of redcurrant and red licorice. Sexy, fat wine with plenty of acidity to carry its considerable body. Finishes long, with substantial fine tannins that dust the teeth. (ST)
Complex and seductive, with blackberry and cherry character with just a hint of cedar. Full-bodied and chewy, with loads of fruit. Extracted and tannic, but should come around.
Mid crimson. A very solid, savoury nose. Quite rewarding and obviously a long way still to go. Great balance. Bravissimo! Chewy but there is a real density of flavour all the way through. Some lift. No compromises. Made in traditional style but with lift and race too. Fine tannins there in abundance. (18.5/20 points)
