A fabulous nose of licorice, fennel, cherries and ripe strawberries. Full body, firm tannins and a vivid, intense aftertaste. Beautiful to taste but better to wait two or three years more. Try in 2017.
Cellar Selection. ...sophisticated & elegant... dark fruit, cassis, crushed spice & even a dusting of black pepper. This classy Riserva delivers dark concentration, polished tannins, balanced acidity & long fruit-driven persistency.
Bright cherry fruit is framed by a round, supple profile, eventually giving way to firm, dusty tannins. Fresh and elegant, with tobacco and tar notes adding complexity. Fine length.
A much more masculine wine, the 2007 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Poggio all’ Oro is all about power. Smoke, tar, licorice, game and leather wrap around a deep, powerful core of fruit. There is little of the seductiveness of the Poggio alle Mura, instead this is a wine of pure power and masculine intensity.
