|Appellation||Brunello di Montalcino|
Wine SpectatorFeatures attractive aromas of cherry, wild herbs and underbrush, with strawberry and tobacco flavors allied to a supple texture. Rich yet elegant, with refined tannins, ending with a panoply of sweet fruit and spice notes. Best from 2017 through 2035. 4,165 cases made.
Wine AdvocateThe 2008 Brunello di Montalcino from Poggio Salvi is quite pretty. An expressive, floral-infused bouquet leads to red cherries, raspberries, tobacco and savory herbs in this nicely balanced, mid-weight Brunello. The 2008 is already quite open. It should continue to drink well for the better part of the decade. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2020.
Wine EnthusiastThis Brunello shows a pristine and bright bouquet that hinges on polished mineral nuances, like wet river stone, cherry cola, ripe blackberry, ginger and rum cake. The wine shows great evolution and complexity despite its young age and just enough fruity pulp to support the lively acidity.
