2013 Poggio Nardone Brunello di Montalcino - 91 PTS - WA

wa91"Poggio Nardone's 2013 Brunello di Montalcino is a darkly saturated and concentrated wine. That color is set, thanks to alcoholic fermentation in steel tanks and malolactic fermentation in oak barrel. The wine then ages in wood for three years. This is a bright, buoyant and super direct Sangiovese with a very immediate delivery of cherry and blackberry fruit flavors. In the mouth, this is a firm and well-structured wine that could do with another few years of bottle aging. - Monica Larner"

2015 Poggio Nardone Brunello di Montalcino - 92 PTS - VINOUS

vinous logo"The nose shows pretty red berry fruits, with sweet florals and cinnamon, as peppery herbs, moist earth, and a hint of crushed plum emerge. On the palate, silky textures contrast a mix of mineral-infused cherry and spice, all energized by zesty acidity, as fine tannins slowly mount, yet the Poggio Nardone remains juicy and fresh. The finish is medium in length and understated, resonating on wild berry fruits, leather and inner floral tones, with just a hint of sour-sweet reduction sauce. The 2015 Poggio Nardone captures all of the best qualities of the year, in a balanced and fruit-forward package with just the right amount of wood influence to give it a tactile feel without ever losing momentum. - Eric Guido"

2015 Poggio Nardone Brunello di Montalcino - 93 PTS - WA

wa93"This is a lovely expression of Sangiovese with a full and generous disposition. The Poggio Nardone 2015 Brunello di Montalcino offers bright cherry, cassis, raspberry and other red berry fruits. Those fruity high notes are followed by savory tones of forest floor, candied orange peel, autumnal leaf and baking spice. The wine offers a smooth and silky mouthfeel with well-integrated tannins and a long, polished finish. This is a clean and compact interpretation of Brunello with the amped up and generous characteristics of this sunny vintage. Here is a generous Brunello worthy of a Fiorentina steak. Some 25,000 bottles comprised this release. - Monica Larner"
