Il Poggione Brunello di Montalcino 2004 Wine Review (NW)
Beautiful black cherry, earth, and sweet spice on the nose
Full bodied on the palate
Long finish with cherry, savory herbs, and sweet tobacco
This Brunello is very good, nicely layered, and youthful. With sweet and savory dancing across the palate, it has all the complexity and character I expect from a Brunello which is the hightest expression of the Sangiovese grape in Italy. The retail price runs around $65 or so. Raise a glass!
