Reviews For This Wine


 
International Wine Cellar | 95

Moderately deep ruby. Perfumed aromas of spicy cherry, licorice and ink are tinged with notes of orange zest, pipe tobacco and menthol, the latter a bit dominating at present. Boasts impressive depth and power, with extremely pure, deep and complex flavors of red cherry, spicy plum and grilled meat that show energy and vibrancy on the palate. The very long finish displays seductive floral tones. This put on considerable weight in the glass, but will need at least several years of bottle aging to shake off its menthol accent and gain more volume. A real iron-fist-in-a-velvet-glove, with extremely fine tannins and uncommon grace.

This has lovely fruit, balanced by dry tannins and a long, lovely finish...expresses as much fruit as any 2001 Brunello I have tasted

About This Producer


Tenuta Il Poggione is one of Montalcino's major wineries. The estate's guiding principle is to pay meticulous attention to the vineyards, because they believe that the secret to producing great red wines lies in tending the vines. The estate has also drastically reduced the quantity of grapes it produces in recent years. By green harvesting, regularly monitoring the condition of the vineyards and constantly checking the need for soil nutrients, an excellent product is achieved even in less favorable years. Grapes are harvested entirely by hand and the wine is made using traditional methodology, although modern, state-of-the-art equipment is used in vinification.
