2000 Il Poggione Brunello di Montalcino Riserva
A beautiful Brunello with great balance and elegance. A wine with big character without excessive power. Sweet, dense, juicy nose with slightly spicy notes and creamy fruit, dominated by ripe cherries and plums. This wine is beautiful to the taste. Dense, warm and velvety, it progressively opens in the mouth, with a perfect correspondence to what it promises at the nose, thanks to a perfectly controlled power. A wine with a big character and excellent balance, endowed with a magnificent pleasa...
90"Very clean for 2000, with plum, flowers, berry and hints of cedar. Medium- to full-bodied, with silky tannins and a long, caressing finish. Very well done. Best after 2005. 11,000 cases made."
