Il Poggione Brunello di Montalcino 2014
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Brunello di Montalcino|
This is smooth and caressing, wrapped around cherry, plum, loam, tobacco and cumin flavors. Hefty tannins line the finish, but all the elements are in the right proportion. Features a fine, complex finish. Best from 2021 through 2035. 9,000 cases made, 1,750 cases imported.
Aromas of underbrush, truffle, dark-skinned berry and tobacco lead the nose of this elegantly structured red. The taut, vibrant palate offers Marasca cherry, cranberry, orange zest and licorice framed by racy acidity and fine-grained tannins. Drink 2020-2026.
