1999 Poggio Antico Brunello di Montalcino

SKU #1010018 92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Bright medium ruby. Superripe, sweet, soil-driven aromas of blackberry, cassis, smoke, truffle, earth, cinnamon and nutmeg, plus a whiff of magnolia blossom. At once sweet and gripping, with fruit of steel. The taut berry and iron flavors reminded me of a very ripe Graves. A very complex, very young wine with great personality and outstanding length. (ST) Inner quote mark (9/2004)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark A wine with plenty of ripe fruit, earth and tobacco character on the nose and palate. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins and a raisiny, spicy aftertaste. (JS) Inner quote mark (5/2004)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 1999 Brunello di Montalcino, dark in color, floral, smoky, and redolent of truffles along with its plum fruit, is round, ripe, and elegant on the palate, smooth and shapely in format, a Beau Brumal with biceps. (DT) Inner quote mark (4/2005)

K&L Notes

Some of the highest vineyards in Montalcino belong to Poggio Antico, and from this lofty perch they produce wines of distinct character. '99 Poggio Antico is a very powerful wine, with dense and full gristly tannins that grip your palate and rattle your molars. The flavors are more leather, with dried porcini mushrooms and bullion, which come together in a crescendo of spice and grip. (Greg St Clair, Italian Buyer)
