Poggio Antico Brunello di Montalcino 2010
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Brunello di Montalcino|
James SucklingA beautifully balanced, subtle Brunello with plum, berry, spice and fresh-mahogany character. Full to medium body, fine tannins and a long finish. Very intense and harmonious. This is always a beauty. Drink or hold.
Wine EnthusiastUnderbrush, red berry, tilled soil, pressed flower and a balsamic note are some of the aromas offered by this radiant red. The bright palate delivers crunchy wild cherry, baking spice and savory herb alongside assertive but refined tannins. It's well balanced with fresh acidity. Drink 2018-2028.
Wine SpectatorShows purity to the cherry, raspberry, spice and earth notes, with a well-knit structure supporting the flavors. Smooth, with soft tannins and a long, succulent finish. Best from 2018 through 2032.
VinousPoggio Antico's 2010 Brunello di Montalcino is a dark, sensual beauty. Black cherries, mocha, smoke, licorice, leather and cloves meld together in a racy, powerful Brunello built on pure texture. The style is rich, racy and super-intense, with silky tannins that support the structured finish. The 2010 spent three years in cask.
