    Ordered and awaiting shipment. Winemaker's Notes: As of the 1995 vintage, the minimum requirement for aging in wood according to DOCG regulations was reduced to 2 years (total aging was left unchanged at 4 years). Nevertheless, Poggio Antico decided to maintain the traditional method for their "classic" Brunello, keeping the wine in new, large barrels of Slavonian oak for 3 years, followed by at least 12 months in the bottle. The result is a lush, complex wine that will show its richness to advantage in time. Critical Acclaim: Good deeame":"def9f"}}]p red. Pretty aromas of currant, coffee, graphite, smoke and tobacco. Plump, silky and suave, with a restrained sweetness and lovely inner-mouth aromatic character to the spicy flavors. This broad, round wine benefits from harmonious framing acidity. Finishes with sweet tannins and very good length. Very expressive, ripe sangiovese. 92 Points International Wine Cellar The estate’s 2005 Brunello di Montalcino impresses with its exceptional balance. Everything comes together beautifully in the glass, as expressive aromatics lead to a well-structured, chiseled expression of fruit. To be sure, this is a decidedly understated Brunello from Poggio Antico, but the wine's overall balance and sense of harmony are superb. The wine spent four years in Slavonian oak, all of which it handles very well. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2020. 91 Points The Wine Advocate
