Wine Description

(2010 Vintage) A wonderful long maturing red wine, high expression of the tradition in Montalcino’s wines productions. It has an intense ruby colour with burgundy hue and concentrated scent, enveloping, ethereal with hints of black cherry, wild berry and vanilla. The flavour is strong, quite tannic in youth, soft and persistent. Serve at 18°C in large glasses; it can be served with red and white roast meats, poultry, game and aged cheese.

    (2004 Vintage) Wines produced by estates belonging to financial institutions rarely have a good reputation in Italy. The outstanding exception are those of mega-insurer SAI, and La Poderina is their Montalcino property. The 1999 Brunello di Montalcino, fresh and dark in color, shows much floral and mineral Sangiovese character in its red currant and wild cherry nose and a broad and enveloping palate, rich and smooth in texture and admirably long on the flow. Drink 2005-2016.
