2011 Villa Poggio Salvi "Pomona" Brunello di Montalcino
A fresh and fruity red with dried cherry, lemon aromas and flavors. Crisp and clean for the vintage. Very well done. Drink now.
Harmonious and elegant, this red exhibits cherry, strawberry, leather, tobacco and mineral flavors, allied to a firm structure. Pure and focused, with a lingering finish. Best from 2017 through 2027. (BS)
95 points International Wine Report: 02/2016 The ‘Pomona’ Brunello is an absolutely striking effort in 2011, impressive for its remarkable purity and elegant style. This gorgeous Brunello opens with alluring aromas of fresh red fruits, floral, mint and spices adding in a subtle hint of leather which begins to emerge with air. A beautifully made wine with remarkable overall balance, structure and precision. It continues to impress with its lovely refined, silky texture and wonderful purity all the way through the long, pretty finish. A completely compelling Brunello that is already very appealing, but patience will be required as this is ultimately an age worthy wine, which should continue to evolve gracefully over the next decade.
