Tasting Notes

A very opulent style with loads of black-cherry, plum, chocolate, cookie, and dark-chocolate aromas and flavors. It’s full-bodied and very layered with loads of fruit and spices. Extremely long and flavorful. Needs time to come completely together, but so gorgeous. Drink now or hold.

James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com, November 2020

The Poggio Antico 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva (with 9,000 bottles going to market in January 2021) is a thickly textured and rich wine with fruit-driven flavors and extra fiber. The wine sings with the characteristics of this vintage that will be remembered for the sunshine, the warmth and the picture-perfect fruit. Each cluster hung from the vine with glorious perfection. There is more warmth and dark plum intensity here for sure, and you also get greater latitude in terms of those savory tones of leather, tobacco and tilled earth. The Riserva is sourced from the Il Vignone site at a high 500 meters above sea level where summer breezes keep the grapes healthy and ripe.

From the excellent 2015 vintage comes this delicious Riserva. The palate is succulent and light, giving plenty of flavour; sour cherry, toffee - almost like a Caramac bar, coffee and liquorice. It’s actually quite heady without being heavy or plush, amazing intensity and elegance with an undercurrent of bright acidity driving things forward.
