Incredible richness to this red, with layers of blackberry, licorice and treacle tart on the nose and palate. Full-bodied, with loads of silky tannins and a long, long finish. Seductive stuff. Even better than 1997. Get it. Best after 2006.

The estate's brooding 2001 Brunello di Montalcino is tarry and earthy, offering potent notes of backward dark fruit and smoke on a big, strapping frame with outstanding length, great overall balance and plenty of style. With some air it is absolutely... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate. A Sangiovese Grosso wine from Tuscany in Italy. 2001 La Poderina Brunello di Montalcino 750ml

I adored La Poderina’s 2001 Brunello di Montalcino and had high hopes for the 2001 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Poggio Banale but unfortunately it misses the mark. It is a perfect example of a wine that has too much of everything. The fruit is super-ripe, overly sweet and excessively concentrated. An exuberant use of oak has left the wine with hard, unpolished tannins that dominate its balance. Despite all of those shortcomings it remains an excellent, well-made wine, which makes its flaws all the more a pity. This wine had all the potential to be one of the vintage’s best Brunellos. Anticipated maturity: 2009–2019.

Blackberries and black cherries on the nose follow through to a full body, with soft and silky tannins. Long finish. Best after 2011.

La Poderinarsquo;s Brunello shows impressive balance between its bright fruit and sassy spice components. On the close, the wine exhibits a tight, firm and penetrating feel that is carried forth by acidity and the natural firmness of the tannins.

The 2004 Brunello di Montalcino presents a remarkable balance of ripe fruit, structure and freshness. Violets, dark cherries, new leather and spices are all woven together in an elegant fabric of notable class. The purity of the fruit is superb and the finish boasts tons of finesse, with silky tannins that frame the close. Anticipated maturity: 2011ndash;2021.
