Tasting Notes

Luminous red. Delicately smoky and ripe on the nose, with deep raspberry and red cherry aromas complicated by notes of sandalwood, licorice, graphite and sweet pipe tobacco. Full and rich but also very bright, with red and dark berry flavors given life by juicy, harmonious acidity and very nicely framed by supple tannins. Closes long, fresh, and expansive, deeper and less sweet than the estate’s 2018 Rosso di Montalcino also released this year. Utterly delicious and already accessible, this boasts noteworthy elegance and freshness for such a big ripe wine.

The 2015 Poggio di Sotto Brunello di Montalcino struts its Castelnuovo dell'Abate origins with pride, taking all of the best aspects of this sunny vintage and adding a savoriness that balances everything out so well. The bouquet is a stunning mix of savory cherry sauce, sage, seared meat, cinnamon, moist earth, and a hint of animal musk. On the palate, its textures are like the purest silk being slowly drawn across the senses in a seamless expression of dark red fruits, sweet spice and inner florals. Nothing is out of place here, showing incredible balance and poise, while remaining tightly wound up in it’s youthful state. The finish seems to go on and on, displaying pretty red fruits and floral tones over a core of salty minerals and rock-solid tannin. You could drink this now, but you’d be missing out, because beneath all of its suave character and textural richness, it is a beast of a wine just waiting to come out.
