Col d'Orcia Poggio Al Vento Brunello di Montalcino Riserva 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

'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

The Col D’Orcia estate is one of the oldest companies of Montalcino, being present in 1933 with the name “Fattoria di Sant’Angelo in Colle” at the First Exhibition of Italian wines held in Siena, with three vintages of Brunello. The origin of the estate dates back to the first half of the XVIII century when the noble family Delle Ciaia of Siena established an estate in the area of Sant’Angelo in Colle which increased year by year. In the second half of the nineteenth century the ownership was passed to the Servadio family and subsequently to the Franceschi family. In 1973 Count Alberto Marone Cinzano took over the company, with the aim to contribute to the development and success of Montalcino and its Brunello on world markets. From 1977 the company has been under the direction of Edoardo Virano and from 1992 the Col D’Orcia estate is presided over by Count Francesco Marone Cinzano. Read less

Poggio al Vento Brunello di Montalcino Riserva 2004 - 93+ points, International Wine Cellar/ Good bright medium red. Subtle aromas of spicy red cherry, red plum, dried flowers, coffee and mint. Suave and fine-grained, with a distinct medicinal menthol reserve and lovely floral/spicy lift. Finishes with serious gripping tannins. This is nowhere near its peak: I'd hold it for another six or seven years, at which point it may merit an even higher rating.

Poggio al Vento Brunello di Montalcino Riserva 2007 - 93+ points, International Wine Cellar/ Bright red. Red cherry, aromatic herbs and tobacco aromas on the impressively deep nose. Sweet and seamless in the mouth, with ripe red cherry and fresh herb flavors lifted by bright acidity and supported by very fine, polished tannins. The clean, very long finish features repeating notes of sweet red cherry and raspberry syrup. Outstanding Brunello. Those who love the wines of Montalcino know that Poggio al Vento has a track record of excellence and is one of the top wines of the whole denominazione. I have completed three verticals of every vintage of this wine in the last three years and can confirm that it deserves that reputation.

Poggio Al Vento 1999/ Showing livelier color than the 1998, the 1999 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Poggio al Vento opens with delicate, nuanced aromatics followed by a lovely core of red cherries, tobacco and minerals. It offers outstanding length as well as purity in a more linear, structured style than the brawnier 1998, although my impression is that the 1999 will prove to be the more complex as well as age-worthy wine. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2018.

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.
