Poggio Antico Altero Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2007

$69.99

...This is the best wine ever from Poggio Antico. Aromas of blackberries and flowers follow through to a full body, with ultra-fine tannins and a polished tannin mouth-feel. This is really structured, yet elegant. Wonderful purity... James Suckling

Young and expensive, highly rated, killer vintage. All of that means high expectations. After a thorough decant and paired with some rather fatty lamb chops & some rocking homemade pesto, I'm still waiting for things to come together. Still waiting for what I spent to come along but am watching the doubt continue to fill the glass. Underwhelmed. Disappointed. This is an overrated wine that costs about 2.5 times what it's worth.

Corked. Undrinkable. And heartbreaking.

Surprisingly fruit forward on initial tasting after about an hour decant. Expected more tannins and structure but delicious regardless. Changed dramatically after 24 hours, fruit faded sharply to be much more mellow, but tannins didn’t emerge, seemed a bit unstructured. Not sure if at this age it’s just muddled and will benefit from a few more years or if it’s peaked and should be enjoyed now. Certainly very enjoyable currently.

Lots of red berry’s on the nose and Palate. Great balance with perfect acidity. Nice long finish. Perfect to celebrate Jonathan’s 25th birthday (and Valentine’s Day)

A Jim Miller selection. So very smooth. Paired beautifully with Bolognese.

On opening it shows. Great intersection of old and new world. 10 years has been good to this guy, and he’s not getting old yet. Still youthful, but rounded and integrated. Has plenty of fruit, tobacco, spice and earth. Rating likely to increase with time and air.

Beautiful floral nose. Full of berries, and light raison finish. The age shows just enough depth and richness! Unbelievable Vintage 2007!
