Poggio Antico Brunello di Montalcino Riserva 2007
|Appellation||Brunello di Montalcino|
Wine EnthusiastHere's a home run from one of the best producers in Montalcino. With sun drenched, sea-facing vineyards (this is one of the only spots where you can see the shimmering Mediterranean from Montalcino), this dense riserva doles out lingering flavors of spice, cherry, leather and tobacco. The acidity is perfectly balanced against the wine's soft fruit.
Wine SpectatorThe oak and fruit elements are well-balanced in this contemporary red, with sweet cherry and plum flavors enhanced by spice, tea and tobacco accents. The tannins are fleshed out by plenty of fruit, and the finish is fresh and long. Best from 2015 through 2030.
