Poggio Antico Altero Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2008

$99

A phenomenal Brunello di Montalcino from Tuscany and one of the top wines of the stellar 2008 vintage!  Very little imported to the U.S. so hurry.96 Points James Suckling:  "I love the subtle aromas of rose petal, dark fruit and perfume that follow through to a full body, with fine tannins and a beautiful finish. It's very fine and pretty. Savory and delicate. Such finesse here. Drink or hold."Winemaker Tasting Notes:  Extremely dark and concentrated. Open, very persistent and clean with wonderful aromas of blackberries, raspberries, coffee, spices and vanilla. Rich, powerful, extremely concentrated yet elegant and velvety. The silky and ripe tannins make it particularly smooth to the palate. Loads of plum, dark cherry and licorice and a very very long finish. A wine that will keep and further improve for many years.

Rounder than the entry level, with some warm spice and some floral notes.

Cleanly made, aroma, very earthy with mint and tomato leaf, fresh nettles. Raw cherry and dried strawberry, low lying earth aromas. Acidity and ample body to match.
