2015 Villa Poggio Salvi "Pomona" Brunello di Montalcino

SKU #1500798 94 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark There’s an impressive overlay here of ripe stems, highlighting ripe boysenberries, blackberry tart, bracken and brambles. The tannins are deeply indented on the medium-to full-bodied palate with broad edges, in a succulent style. Medium-chewy on the finish. Inner quote mark (9/2019)

94 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Underbrush, leather and tobacco aromas lead the nose along with a whiff of orange zest. It’s full bodied, offering juicy black cherry, star anise and nutmeg framed in velvety, close-grained tannins. (KO) Inner quote mark (5/2020)

92 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark Named for the goddess of fruitful abundance, Pomona, this wine is selected from their best site within the property, where its first vintage was 2010. Pomona is depicted on all the Villa Poggio Salvi labels. Like the 2016 “normale,” the 2016 Pomona Brunello di Montalcino has very pretty, purple floral aromatics, with a somewhat darker, more intense fruit profile of fresh blackberry, licorice, and tobacco. The palate here also turns more classic, but with warming amaro spices, black tea, and a firm tannin structure. Give this some time to harmonize and it will be worth the wait. 2025-2035. AF Inner quote mark (3/2021)

91 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Dusty sweet cherry and plum mix with hints of mint, cedar shaving, white smoke and dried roses, creating the fruit-forward yet alluring bouquet of the 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Pomona Salvi Pomona. On the palate, juicy textures usher in a pure expression of red berries, complemented by saline-minerality and zesty acids. The finish is long, showing this Brunello’s first hints of grippy tannin, as tart blackberry fruit adds further tension, slowly tapering off to pretty inner florals. (EG) Inner quote mark (4/2020)

K&L Notes

Villa Poggio Salvi is a Tuscan wine estate based in Montalcino, known for its Brunello di Montalcino wines made from the Sangiovese grape. It has been owned by the Tagliabue family since 1979, although winegrowing here dates back to the 16th century. Villa Poggio Salvi makes a range of wines from the area, led by Pomona, a single-vineyard Brunello di Montalcino named after the Roman goddess of fruitful abundance, whose image features on all labels. This wine is aged for 30 months in Slavonian oak before release. The Montalcino lineup also includes a standard Brunello and a Riserva, as well as a Rosso di Montalcino, all of which are aged in oak for a period determined by the cuvée and the vintage. Villa Poggio Salvi also makes a grappa and a Moscadello di Montalcino.

Villa Poggio Salvi wines show more of the old school classic aromatics and flavors and they come from the Pomona vineyard that is just short of 1500’ fairly high for Montalcino. On the nose on ripe plum, wild marasca cherry, lots of leather, spice, wild herbs and tobacco encases your olfactory senses. On the palate this wine has density, richness but in a more classic vein there’s a tannic sheath holding the wine together, it actually adds to the palate presence. The flavors start with the wild cherry, leather, earth and then the ripe plumy character begins to emerge, lots of minerals and iron on the palate. The wine shows great promise, depth and room to grow, it is really good. Villa Poggio Salvi’s Pomona is a true rarity, only 2,438 bottles were produced.
