La Poderina is located just south of Montalcino in an area renowned for elegant
and balanced fruit. 25 acres are dedicated to the cultivation of the Sangiovese
Grosso for the production of this Brunello and Poggio Abate. These vineyards
have yields well below the 32 ql/acre dictated by the appellation’s regulations.
Ruby red color with garnet notes. Intense, concentrated nose of black cherries,
wild berries and vanilla. On the palate it is rich, full bodied, quite tannic in
youth, soft and persistent. Serve at 18°C in large glasses.
Best served with red and white roast meats, poultry, game and aged cheese.
The nose starts at a café, with espresso and a cherry vanilla scone, before heading outside to a field of wild herbs. On the elegant palate, enduring notes of mocha and cherry are balanced by a spiced, medicinal undertone. Flexible yet sturdy tannins and simmering acid undergird a velvety, contoured texture.
There is an earthy note here with iron ore and dusty root to start off the bouquet of the 2018 Brunello di Montalcino. That savory tone cedes to dark fruit, baked plum and a hint of roasted chestnut shell. This wine promotes a unique identity and a special aromatic profile in this vintage. Those earthy or metallic notes are also delivered to the palate, where the wine offers mid-weight density and dusty tannins. This is an ample production of 69,500 bottles.
This has aromas of cherry stones, bark, olives and dried mushrooms. Tar and bitter chocolate, too. Full-bodied with finelyknit, integrated tannins. Excellent density with bright acidity and an earthy, savory edge. Drink after 2023.
Mentholated herbs are forward in the 2018 Brunello Di Montalcino, which is noted with cola spice, eucalyptus, and spiced cranberry. It is medium-bodied, with its medicinal herbs translating to the palate as well as fine tannins and dusty earth. A snap of amaro and quinine give it energy and a pleasantly herbaceous style.
