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.

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.

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.

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.
