Tasting Note

A fabulous example of Italy's most famous red wine - and from a top-notch producer. Very complex aromas of dried cherry and cranberry, spice, leather, truffles and tobacco. Velvety and soft, with masses of come-hither allure. Superb intensity and beautiful balance, rich and rounded: creamy chocolate, dried fruit and spice character, Absolutely delicious! Decanting helps round out the tannin. Drinking beautifully now and over the next five years.

Press

  • 95+/100 - Il Poggione is a Brunello superstar and a vintage like this reveals every reason why that affirmation is true. From the second the 2012 Brunello di Montalcino pours into the glass, you know you are in for something special. The wine is darkly saturated and rich in appearance. Absent are those slightly amber or browning hues you often get with Sangiovese in a hot vintage. Nor does the wine show flat or tired characteristics. Instead, the quality of fruit is vibrant and rich. This is a healthy, generous and exuberant Brunello with dark density and succulent fruit flavors that are followed by integrated spice and tobacco. The balance is impressive and one thing you get here is fresh acidity. This is not to be underestimated, because the acidity quota in the 2012 vintage across the appellation is not as high or evident as usual. This is one of the year's best Brunellos. Fabrizio Bindocci and his son Alessandro are the most accomplished father-son winemaking team I can think of today in Italy... They excel in every aspect of winemaking, from vineyard management to wine marketing.

  • A 'Rockstar Vintage' - Fans of Brunello di Montalcino are in for a treat with the 2012 vintage... I was impressed with their beautiful aromas, vibrant fruit, lively acidity, and ultra-fine tannins. These sangioveses are much more precise and finer than the bolder and riper 2011s. They have more in common with the legendary 2010 vintage and are most like the 2004s, a harmonious and gorgeous year for Brunellos.
