La Poderina is located just south of Montalcino near the village of Castelnuovo dell'Abate that is well known for the elegance and balance of its grapes. Thanks to the feeling that innovation serves tradition, wines by La Poderina mature in a mixture of French oak barriques and large wooden barrels. Vineyards are geared to produce 6 tons of grapes per hectare, that is significantly lower than the 8 tons allowed by law. Brunello is produced in two versions: the regular wine Brunello di Montalcino D.O.C.G. and the single vineyard selection Brunello di Montalcino Poggio Banale D.O.C.G.. In addition to that, La Poderina produces: Rosso di Montalcino D.O.C., Virgùlto Rosso di Toscana I.G.T., Grappa di Brunello and Moscadello di Montalcino D.O.C.. Read less

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

Floral cherry and woody underbrush flavors highlight this elegant, pure style. The tannins are there, lending support and a harmonious feel to the overall balance. Tequila-tinged finish. Best from 2016 through 2027.

The 2009 Brunello di Montalcino is a very beautiful wine with lots of little loose ends to keep your attention. Overall, the bouquet is extremely clean and polished, but you’ll also notice playful outreaches of berry fruit, cola, pressed violets, crushed mineral and cool menthol. This is one of the most expressive wines of the vintage especially thanks to the finesse and delicate layering it offers. Drink: 2016–2027.

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 - Wine Spectator Magazine 93 Points ** Only 2 in Stock **

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.

Wines produced by estates belonging to financial institutions rarely have a good reputation in Italy. The outstanding exception are those of mega-insurer SAI, and La Poderina is their Montalcino property. The 1999 Brunello di Montalcino, fresh and dark in color, shows much floral and mineral Sangiovese character in its red currant and wild cherry nose and a broad and enveloping palate, rich and smooth in texture and admirably long on the flow. Drink 2005-2016.
