1999 La Poderina Brunello di Montalcino
"Incredible richness to this red, with layers of blackberry, licorice and treacle tart on the nose and palate. Full-bodied, with loads of silky tannins and a long, long finish. Seductive stuff?? Even better than 1997. Get it."-Wine Spectator
International Wine CellarRating: 88(+?) - As reviewed by International Wine Cellar in Issue 116, September/October 2004. ($68) Fresh medium ruby. Aromatic nose combines roasted berries, chocolate and spicecake. Sweet, concentrated and primary, with rather clenched, medicinal flavors of dark berries and minerals. Cleanly made but not yet showing much nuance. Almost brutal in the mid-palate, but the tannins are fairly supple.
Vintage ChartRating for Italy-Tuscany: 94 (good year)<br/><br/>Drinkability: young, aging quickly, could be good now<br/>
