Poggio di Sotto

Region:

Italy

Appellation:

Montalcino

Grape Variety:

Sangiovese

Brunello di Montalcino, Riserva, 2010

Tasting Note:

Powerful but with a classical elegance. Deep yet lifting at the same time. Such class and length of flavour. Serious, layered and with the balance to suggest a long ageing capacity. Gripping tannins mix fluidly with a tense freshness and suave ripe fruit. Notes of dried rose petal, red cherries, forest berries and leather. Stunning. In the greatest years, Poggio di Sotto select their best vat and bottle it separately as Riserva after an extra 12 months on cask (60 months ageing in total.) The origin of the vines can therefore change but more often than not the Riserva comes from a parcel of mid slope vines situated halfway up the estate at 200 metres above sea level.
