Tenuta Il Poggione

Riserva Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2011

Aged in French oak barrels for about 36 months, produced from 100% Sangiovese grapes, picked by hand from 20-year old vines. Deep Ruby with concentrated ripe red fruit aromas and complex floral spice scents. On the palate, this outstanding full-bodied wine shows flavors of cherry and dark berry fruit, layered spices, cinnamon, tobacco & cacao, well integrated. Savory, smooth tannins, smoky oak notes, long rich finish. Drinking well, still has room to age. Outstanding! Tasting Sample. — 6 days ago

Rennina Pieve Santa Restituta Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2015

This Brunello is medium dark red in color. The nose shows cherry and cassis aromas, draped in anise, cedar, vanilla and a layer of smoke. The palate is fruity and carries a good acidity and tannic structure. A spicy streak cuts through with an herbal character. The finish is long and brings the savory aspect back for a reminder. — 16 days ago

Gorgeous dusty cherries on the nose. Nice pure lipstick like cherry stank. So good. Really pure, bright and lovely aromatic intensity. Palate is juicy and had a nice structure to it. Nice mouthfeel and good rusticity. Charming and rustic. We need wines like this. — 11 days ago
