This is austere, with a dense matrix of tannins supporting cherry, tobacco, stone and leather flavors. Stays fresh, featuring a coating of dusty tannins on the finish. Best from 2018 through 2032. 830 cases made.

The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Poggio al Granchio is a shapely and powerful wine with a tight approach and a smooth succession of wild berry, spice and cola-like aroma. The wine shows a lot of the balsam herb aromas that are so unique to Sangiovese in the Montalcino appellation. In the mouth, this wine presents tightly-knit tannins that should relax and flesh out with more aging time in the bottle. I would suggest waiting at least three years before popping the cork. The wine is too young to drink now.

Aromas of black-skinned berry marinated in spirits, dark spice, chopped herb and a balsamic note emerge in the glass. The robust assertive palate offers dried sour cherry, powdered sage and star anise alongside a backbone of bracing, mouth-drying tannins that grip the finish. Give this a few more years to soften, then drink up to capture the remaining fruit.
