    Winemaker's Notes:

    Il Poggione Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is an intense ruby-red color. An elegant nose with notes of red fruit, leather and spices. This wine also has a persistent, balanced flavor, with long seductive finish.

    Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is produced only in the best years and in limited quantities. This wine comes exclusively from "I Paganelli" vineyard, the oldest vineyard on the estate, planted in 1964. These vines, used for sourcing the Sangiovese clones when new vineyards are planted, grow top quality grapes which are picked by individual selection of the best and ripest bunches.

    Blend: 100% Estate Sangiovese

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Vigna Paganelli is huge, powerful and totally implosive. The seductive allure of the 2007 is nowhere to be found. Instead, the 2006 is built on a serious spine of formidable tannin and dark red/black fruit. Hints of tar, licorice, rose petals and tobacco inform the powerful, virile finish. The 2006 is going to require considerable patience, but it is clearly a jewel of a wine, even at this early stage. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2046.

    This vineyard-designated riserva delivers perfumed notes of red rose, pressed flower and a bright, berry-driven bouquet. In the mouth, this is a plump, bold wine with thick concentration and loads of dark fruit such as blackberry and plum. The tannic firmness suggests at least 10 years of cellar aging. Overall, it is beautiful, elegant and bold.

    Bright, dark red with ruby highlights. Youthfully medicinal aromas of dark fruits and minerals. Brooding and primary today, with powerful black cherry, licorice, mineral and menthol flavors dominated by the wine's firm tannic spine. This extremely backward, structured riserva will need a good eight to ten years of aging and should be long-lived, but it's tough going today. 94+ points

    A reserved decadence to this. Aromas of raspberry jam with hints of plums. Full body, with soft and round tannins and a fruity finish. Balanced and delicious.

    Perhaps one of the best reds I've ever experienced. Granted, it was over a 7 course home-cooked Italian meal in Tuscany. Our group consumed 8 bottles in one evening. A bold, plump wine. I keep at least 2 bottles on hand in my wine fridge at all times. Have paired it with everything from steak, chili, pasta to chocolate. A must share with friends and family during holiday festivities.
