Rosso di Montalcino Il Poggione 91ag 2012
Dark ruby in color with a touch of brick. Rather closed on the nose with soft cherries in the mouth. Highly acidic wine with almost no tannins leading to a short finish.
External Reviews for Rosso di Montalcino Il Poggione 91ag
A fine Rosso, with cherry, floral, tobacco and spice flavors imparting harmony and grace. The lively acidity and refined tannins frame the flavors. Lingering finish. Drink now through 2020.
The 2012 Rosso di Montalcino could almost be mistaken for a Riserva given the amazing depth and impenetrable darkness it shows in the glass. The wine is made from the estate’s youngest and lowest vines that have definitely taken on the brunt of the 2009 summer heat. The mouthfeel is supple and rich and somewhat one-dimensional. At this young stage, the bouquet shows awkward whiffs of toasted coconut and popcorn that prevented me from scoring it higher. Drink: 2014–2017.
