2006 Poggiarellino Rosso di Montalcino
Review Date: 01-02-2009
Delicious. My first impression was of mineral and wet stones, along with dusty tannins. The traditional Sangiovese nose kicked my a$$ - intense fruit and earth. It's great with mushroom dishes. This wine is a baby, but with a few hours of decanting it is approachable. It doesn't get a higher score just because it's not as good as a Brunello (costing $65+). This is not a silky smooth American wine, but youthfully rough. If possible, let it rest for a few years. Winemaker's note: this wine begs for a little egg white fining.
Drink from 2010 to 2010
