Poggio Antico Brunello di Montalcino Riserva 2012
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Brunello di Montalcino|
Wine SpectatorThis is plush, boasting cherry, plum, leather, mineral and tobacco flavors. Vibrant and solidly built, with a long, expansive and spicy aftertaste. Needs some time, but this should come together nicely in three to five years. Best from 2022 through 2038. 300 cases made.
Wine EnthusiastThis offers aromas of plum, truffle, new leather, exotic spice and a whiff of French oak. The structured elegant palate delivers juicy Marasca cherry, raspberry compote, licorice and espresso framed in firm close-grained tannins that give the finish grip. A note of dried sage marks the close.
