We had this at a Tuscan Restaurant in Kumamoto, Japan. It paired with our steak and gnocchi perfectly. Dark cherry fruit wrapped up in coffee aromas and spicy tannins with a long finish.

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: 2014-2024.

A beauty, with terrific integration of its floral, cherry and plum tart notes, all backed by a steely structure. The elements are there and the tannins will be absorbed in time. Long, spicy finish. Best from 2013 through 2026.

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.

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.

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

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. There’s a strong oak element here but it coexists comfortably with the natural fruit.

Winemaker's Notes:

96 points and 'Top 100 Wine of 2009 (#11)', Wine Spectator: Dried dark fruit on the nose, verging on date and prune. Full-bodied, with a dense palate of ripe fruit and supersilky tannins. This is a deep and beautiful red, delivering lots of subtle character. Fascinating. One of the undiscovered treasures of the vintage. Best after 2011. (4/30/09)
