A huge wine with unbalanced #abv and ripe fruit. A touch of horse saddle added to the great complexity. Unfortunately the palate was clumsy and the tannins were a little gritty. #brunellodimontalcino #ilpoggione #tuscany #brunello #ctbucklinwine

Garnet color, spicy, leathery nose, ripe red fruit, baking spices, medium tannins and acidity. Sound wine.

This was a late addition to a tasting of 2007 Tuscan wines I held last week, and was the only Brunello in the bunch. It was served last. Everyone really enjoyed this wine. After almost 4 hours of decanting, it delivered a silky mouth feel, terrific black cherry fruit, and perfect balance of acidity, fruit, and tannins. A sweet spice accent showed up in the finish. This was one of the best bottles of Il Poggione I’ve had to date. Delicious.

Really nicely balanced wine. The alcohol is integrated perfectly and I would even lay it down for another 5 years or so
