Brownish-garnet color, dark fruit and flower aromas, very smooth, balanced in the mouth with a nice buttery smooth finish and chewy tannin aftertaste. Shared two bottles with friends to celebrate my promotion and all loved it. The best wine I've ever had so far--glad I opened it for such an occassion.

Not as good as the other. Tasted more advanced than the previous. Little structure, tannins, or fruit. KAB agreed. Hope the next was treated better
Initally very muted. Over an 1-2 hours opened nicely. Plum, mushroom on the nose and palate. Good balance, gritty tannins. Recently had the 97 which I preferred--seemed a little fresher and fuller. I would not hold this, drink now.
External Reviews for La Poderina Brunello di Montalcino
Deep ruby. Rather closed nose needs time in the glass to fully reveal all it's got, but there's plenty of raspberry, strawberry and cola here, plus a pretty floral twist. Suave and stylish on entry, with ripe red cherry and plum flavors framed by rather high but harmonious acidity. Excellent balance and a smooth texture are evident on the long finish, making this one of the best wines of the vintage.
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: 2011-2021.
Blackberries and black cherries on the nose follow through to a full body, with soft and silky tannins. Long finish. Best after 2011. 4,585 cases made. -JS ** Only 2 in Stock **
Blackberries and black cherries on the nose follow through to a full body, with soft and silky tannins. Long finish. Best after 2011.
Beautiful blackberry and spice, with hints of coffee. Full-bodied, with fine tannins and a gorgeous finish. Seductive. Best after 2009.
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 irresistible today, but it also appears to have enough stuffing to age for at least another decade. Anticipated maturity: 2006-2016.
