Poggio Il Castellare Brunello 2003

External Review by Premium Wine & Spirits:

Raisin and plum skin character with a medium to full body and a silky, fresh finish. Slightly disjointed now. Should come together with a bit of bottle age. Best after 2005.

Ruby-red. Musky aromas of raspberry, espresso, baconfat and gunflint. Sweet, dense and pliant but with sound framing acidity. Nicely concentrated flavors of berries and baking spices. Has personality, but is it ripe enough? This started out a bit like syrah on the nose, but with extended aeration it was more cabernet-like, with flavors of black cherry liqueur and mint.

A solid red, with plum, berry and light cedar character. Full-bodied, with solid tannins and a long finish. All there. Best after 2007.

Poggio Il Castellare has taken leaps and bounds in quality over the past few years and this vintage boasts a sophisticated and penetrating wine with cherry, spice, vanilla and toast. Therersquo;s a strong oak element here but it coexists comfortably with the natural fruit.

This pretty Brunello opens with a dark garnet color and segues to aromas of black cherry liqueur, blackberry, soy sauce, cola and dark spice. Itrsquo;s a brooding, austere expression from Tuscany with polished tannins and silky texture.

This is a very smooth and polished wine with good density, length and a squeaky-clean feel on the palate. This winersquo;s texture is fine and smooth with buoyant aromas of wild berry, forest floor and root beer that keep the intensity alive.

The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino from Poggio Il Castellare is a dark, inward wine imbued with dark cherries, plums, tar, smoke, licorice and new leather, all of which come together on a powerful, incisive frame. This burly, somewhat rough around the edges Brunello shows plenty of length and richness, even if the tannins might benefit from a measure of added polish. Still, I see this working well with boldly flavored dishes. Anticipated maturity: 2014ndash;2024.
