Brunello di Montalcino 2008 Poggio di Sotto
|Brand||Poggio di Sotto|
A juicy, immediate wine, the 2008 Brunello di Montalcino impresses for its inner perfume and overall harmony. Cloves, menthol, licorice and tar are some of the notes that meld together as the wine opens up. In this vintage, the volatile acidity that is sometimes present is more pronounced than usual because the wine lacks its customary depth. Hints of hard candy, flowers and mint linger on the racy finish. Overall, this is a solid effort from Poggio di Sotto. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2028.
Just mid ruby with broad orange-tinged rim. Lifted, fresh and a little wild on the nose! Ripe sweet cherry with a spiced theme running through it. Crunchy tannin. Great balance and style and unpolished.
