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.

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.

Bright ruby-red. Sexy, highly aromatic nose combines wild berry liqueur, smoke, leather, earth, coffee, meat and licorice. Lush, suave and smooth, with broad, silky flavors of raspberry and smoked meat. Rich but not especially sweet thanks to firm acids. Conveys an impression of concentration and extract perfectly supported by spine. Finishes broad but shapely, with firm tannins and excellent length.

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.

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

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.
