2004 Poggio il Castellare Brunello di Montalcino

SKU #1052284 96 points Wine Spectator

 Dried dark fruit on the nose, verging on date and prune. Full-bodied, with a dense palate of ripe fruit and supersilky tannins. This is a deep and beautiful red, delivering lots of subtle character. Fascinating. One of the undiscovered treasures of the vintage. Best after 2011. *Ranked #11, Top 100 Wines of 2009* (JS)  (4/2009)

 Poggio Il Castellare has taken leaps and bounds in quality over the past few years and this vintage boasts a sophisticated and penetrating wine with cherry, spice, vanilla and toast. There’s a strong oak element here but it coexists comfortably with the natural fruit.  (6/2009)

Upon release in 2009: The nose of this wine is ripe and plummy, warm and inviting in a Calistoga sort of way. Plums dominate the palate as the wine's structure begins to emerge, giving the mid-palate a chunky feel where the tannins become more evident. The tannins begin to lengthen and the wine grows, flavors emerge and then, in a flash, it finishes with a flurry of tannins that muddle the end. This wine definitely has some significant structure and weight; I'd love to know if time will ameliorate the tannins.
