External Reviews for Poggio Il Castellare Brunello di Montalcino
Poggio il Castellare's 2005 Brunello di Montalcino is an attractive Brunello to drink over the next decade or so. Soft red fruit, spices, earthiness and herbs come together on a mid-weight frame. The intensity tapers off just a touch on the finish, but the wine possesses lovely overall balance just the same. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2020.
Medium red with an amber edge. Red berries, dried cherry and sweet spices on the nose. Enters smooth, fleshy and sweet, with ripe red cherry, licorice and milk chocolate flavors. A rather politely styled Brunello, finishing with smooth tannins and a note of ripe red cherry. This will offer considerable early drinking pleasure.
Really powerful for the vintage, with plenty of ripe fruit and cedary new wood, yet balanced and pretty. Full-bodied, with polished tannins and a long finish. Needs a year or two to come completely together. Best after 2011.
This pretty Brunello opens with a dark garnet color and segues to aromas of black cherry liqueur, blackberry, soy sauce, cola and dark spice. It's a brooding, austere expression from Tuscany with polished tannins and silky texture.
In 1998, when Bruna Baroncini bought this 22-acre estate in Montalcino, she immediately set about reconstructing the whole property, planting an additional 15 acres of vineyards and building a cellar. Under the direction of consulting enologist Nicola Berti, the Poggio Il Castellare 2004 was aged three years in a combination of large casks and new, one- and two-year-old barrels, followed by six months in bottle prior to release.
A decadent and ultra-rich red, with plum tart, prunes, cooked meat and berries. Full bodied, with soft and silky tannins and a long, flavorful finish. An aromatically beautiful wine. Best after 2012. James Suckling. A Sangiovese Grosso wine from Tuscany in Italy. 2006 Poggio Il Castellare Brunello di Montalcino 750ml
