2010 Poggiarellino Brunello di Montalcino

SKU #1220230 95 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark A Brunello with so much forest floor, mushroom and dark fruits on then nose. Fascinating. It's full body, juicy and savory with a wonderful finish of dried meat, berry and dried mushroom. Drinking beautifully now but will age beautifully. Great value. Inner quote mark (12/2014)

Old school delicious Brunello. Dark, earthy, savory this is a welcome treat in a world of very ripe oaky reds. A long time favorite at K&L. Great now, gets even better with time.

This is an impeccable expression of Brunello di Montalcino at a steal. It offers great structure and bright fruit flavors with savory elements: forest floor, mushrooms and granite. It will only improve with age!​

I first tasted Poggiarellino’s 1999 Brunello in 2003, they were a tiny producer making a couple of hundred cases and I was looking to write about the northern portion of Montalcino, they just happened to fit geographically. We started to import their wines with the 2000 vintage and the quality of their wine grows every year. Since I first tasted the 2010 from their 25-hectoliter barrels I’ve been waiting for this day to offer it to you, it is simply the best wine they have ever made. When you first smell this wine the gamut of aromas is classic Poggiarellino, wild Marasca cherry, plum with a certain wild sauvage that the Italians call sotto bosco (the aroma of the forest floor). On the palate the wine shows a broad richness with a decisive tannic structure, not obtrusive or harsh just powerful, fine grain and shows the how big frame of this wine really is. The flavors reflect the aromatics, more Marasca cherry, with plum and red berry then hints of saddle leather followed by that sotto bosco intrigue. The wine’s rich powerful presence glides easily to the back of your palate with a long and elegant finish, impressive for such a powerful wine.
Drink from 2015 to 2030
