Il Poggione Brunello di Montalcino Riserva 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Vigna Paganelli is huge, powerful and totally implosive. The seductive allure of the 2007 is nowhere to be found. Instead, the 2006 is built on a serious spine of formidable tannin and dark red/black fruit. Hints of tar, licorice, rose petals and tobacco inform the powerful, virile finish. The 2006 is going to require considerable patience, but it is clearly a jewel of a wine, even at this early stage. Anticipated maturity: 2016 to 2046. "It’s hard to know where to start with these new releases from Il Poggione, as every wine I tasted was strikingly beautiful. This is a great showing from father and son team Fabrizio and Alessandro Bindocci. Il Poggione’s Brunello di Montalcino remains one of the most fairly priced, ageworthy wines on the planet...97 points." Wine Advocate, 4/12. "Perfumed notes of red rose and pressed flower open the bright bouquet. This is a plump, bold wine with concentration and loads of dark fruits such as prune and black plum. Tight tannic firmness. Let this wine age 10 more years. Beautiful, elegant, bold. Terlato Wines International....96 points." Wine Enthusiast, 2/12. "Dark berries, with hints of raspberries and blackberries on the nose. Full body, with velvety tannins and a medium chewy texture. It's a wine with pretty depth of fruit that needs time to open and soften, from the new wood tannins. Better in 2014...91 points:" - James Suckling, 2/12
