2007 Il Poggione "Vigna Paganelli" Brunello di Montalcino Riserva

SKU #1182078 96 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Il Poggione's 2007 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Vigna Paganelli is utterly stunning, but it is surprisingly tannic and huge for a vintage in which so many wines are much more approachable. Layers of dark red stone fruit open up on the palate, followed by sweet spices, savory herbs and mint. Beautifully perfumed and expressive throughout, the 2007 is a jewel of a wine. The only thing it needs is time. (AG) Inner quote mark (5/2014)

95 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark A powerful yet superbly refined Brunello with a full body and velvety tannins that are layered and silky textured. Lovely dried fruits and spices. Beautiful intensity. Super finish. Drink or hold. Inner quote mark (6/2013)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark A huge, dramatic wine, the 2007 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva literally explodes from the glass. This is a decidedly exuberant, flashy wine loaded with dark fruit. Tobacco, smoke, tar and licorice all come alive in this big, broad-shouldered Riserva. Here, too, the wine’s balance is impeccable. (AG) Inner quote mark (6/2013)

95 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Vigna Paganelli shows amazing results with a bright fruit quality that translates into black cherry and blackberry. At the back are sophisticated tones of leather, tobacco and light touches of spice that give the wine depth and elegance. The most interesting aspect, however, is the mouthfeel that shows firm but beautifully ripe tannins that will help the wine age 10 years or more. Inner quote mark (5/2013)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Rich and medium-weight, with cherry, berry, leather and spice notes converging on the long, juicy finish. Balanced in a sleek, compact manner, ending with fresh touches of mineral. (BS) Inner quote mark (5/2013)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Healthy bright garnet. Mulch on the nose with some warmth. Very firm and warm with assertive tannins. Edge of tar with some cumin and it's already displaying some tangy elegance as well as a rich fully ripe fruity core. (JR) Inner quote mark (3/2016)
