Poggio di Sotto Il Decennale 2001

Winemaker's Notes:

Awarded 3 Glasses by Gambero Rosso: We have always like Piero Palmucci's Brunello Riservas and that tradition continues this year with Three Glasses for his Il Decennale '01, the Riserva, although it doesn't say so in the name. The DOCG boards, inexplicably, did not consider this quintessentially typical Montalcino wine to be true enough to type. This wine presents a textbook hue and makes a big impact on the nose with aromas of fruit, tobacco, medicinal herbs, floral hints and refreshing balsam. The palate is elegant in style and exceedingly well balanced, with everything in place and no flaws or forcing. The tannins are already resolved and perfectly complement the acidity, taking the wine through to a very stylish finish.
