Poggio Antico Brunello di Montalcino 2013

External Review:

The Poggio Antico estate is about 500 acres of beautiful woods, fields, olive groves and vineyards. About 80 acres are planted with the Brunello clone of Sangiovese. Located at an altitude of approximately 450 meters (1,476 feet) above sea level, Poggio Antico is one of the highest altitude producers of Brunello. The steady breezes at this altitude sweep away morning and evening fogs and early frosts, and dry the grapes after every rain, thereby preventing the development of mold and allowing them to avoid anti-mold chemical treatments. This highly privileged position and sunny vineyards facing south to southwest guarantee optimum growing conditions, particularly during the crucial maturation period when the grapes gradually reach a perfect balance between sugar and acidity, especially in a superb vintage like 2010. This 2010 received rave reviews and James Suckling scored it 97 points saying "A beautifully balanced, subtle Brunello with plum, berry, spice and fresh-mahogany character. Full to medium body, fine tannins and a long finish. Very intense and harmonious. This is always a beauty. Drink or hold."

Underbrush, red berry, tilled soil, pressed flower and a balsamic note are some of the aromas offered by this radiant red. The bright palate delivers crunchy wild cherry, baking spice and savory herb alongside assertive but refined tannins. It’s well balanced with fresh acidity. Drink 2018–2028.

Poggio Antico’s 2010 Brunello di Montalcino is a dark, sensual beauty. Black cherries, mocha, smoke, licorice, leather and cloves meld together in a racy, powerful Brunello built on pure texture. The style is rich, racy and super-intense, with silky tannins that support the structured finish. The 2010 spent three years in cask.

Shows purity to the cherry, raspberry, spice and earth notes, with a well-knit structure supporting the flavors. Smooth, with soft tannins and a long, succulent finish. Best from 2018 through 2032. 4,000 cases made.

Vintage: 1990 12/16/2011

Delicious from start to finish; quite powerful. Its very ripe and very sweet-tasting and melts in the mouth, showing tons of plum, red berry and chocolate flavors. Give it until 1997 to come together. 3,750 cases made. Wine Spectator. A Sangiovese Grosso wine from Tuscany in Italy. 1990 Poggio Antico Brunello di Montalcino 750ml
