Col d'Orcia Poggio Al Vento Brunello di Montalcino Riserva 2004
'The 2004 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Poggio al Vento is developing beautifully. This is a decidedly feminine, graceful style of Poggio al Vento. The wine literally floats on the palate with gracious layers of fruit. Silky tannins support sweet red berries, flowers and spices on the mouthwatering finish. The 2004 is flat-out beautiful. This was a relatively generous harvest, and that comes through in the wine’s medium-bodied structure. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2044...95"05/2012 WA
External Reviews for Col d'Orcia Poggio Al Vento Brunello di Montalcino Riserva
Poggio Al Vento 1999 - 90 Points, International Wine Cellar/ Medium ruby with a hint of garnet at the rim. Beautiful sangiovese nose speaks of violet, underripe red berries, licorice and cured tobacco. Very intense, almost syrupy red cherry flavors are complicated by spicy leather and game nuances. Beautifully harmonious acids give this real definition and lift, with ultra-smooth, velvety tannins echoing on the concentrated, long finish.
Poggio Al Vento 2001 - 97 Points, Wine Review Online/ At a tasting of Brunello from the superb and rightly high-acclaimed 2004 vintage, this wine shone. It had heavy competition since the 2004 vintage produced many outstanding Brunellos. But this wine was a cut above everything else in the room. It had a rich, earthy, smoky black fruit dense core that is the hallmark of Brunello, but a length and complexity that was staggering. A wine to cellar, it has plenty of supple and ripe - not green and hard - tannins befitting a young wine. But its impeccable balance suggests a gorgeous evolution. In my private scoring system, this wine gets the highest level, WB (for 'would buy').
Poggio Al Vento 2001/ The estate’s 2001 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Poggio al Vento is a gorgeous, layered wine that reveals nuances of menthol, licorice, sweet spices, leather and plums, all of which meld together in a Brunello of remarkable balance. The wine’s ripeness and structure insure it will last for many a year to come. In fact, the tannins may well outlast the fruit. In the meantime there is much to admire here, starting with an impeccable, long finish that begs for a second taste. Proprietor Francesco Marone Cinzano makes powerful wines imbued with notable pedigree from his extensive holdings in the southern reaches of Montalcino.
Poggio Al Vento 1999 - Tre Bicchieri/ Gambero Rosso presents the English and German version of Vini d'Italia 2008, the best-seller book about Italian wines that has become a mainstay for both professionals and wine-lovers. A unique opportunity to get know and to taste a wide selection of the best Italian wines.
Brunello de-con-struct-ed/ Intense aromas of black cherry and licorice with hints of leather. Juicy wild cherry flavors balanced by big, sweet tannins wonderfully combine power and elegance. Delicious.
Col d'Orcia's Poggio al Vento 1999: No Wine Before It's Time/ The wines of the southern tip of the Brunello di Montalcino zone are typically riper and more powerful than those produced elsewhere in the Brunello zone, but none moreso than the iconic Col d'Orcia single-vineyard Brunello di Montalcino Riserva, Poggia al Vento. The Poggio al Vento vineyard is a unique parcel that delivers a consistent quality vintage after vintage, namely powerful, long-lived Brunello that will be better in 10 years than it is today.
