Wine AdvocatePoggio San Polo's 2010 Brunello di Montalcino is a beautiful wine with a deep sense of aromatic purity and complexity. The bouquet delivers characteristic tones of small berry, forest floor, pressed violets, sweet spice, licorice and cola. Those aromas are both pure and intense, and build in momentum as the wine takes on more air in the glass. This is a fantastic effort with a mouthfeel that is as delicate and light as its it is meaningful and long-lasting. The overall effect is one of elegance and finesse. This is a highly recommendable achievement from a classic vintage. Open this bottle after 2017.
Wine SpectatorSweet cherry, plum, licorice and wild herb aromas and flavors mingle in this supple, juicy red. Layered and complex, with elegance and a mineral-tinged aftertaste. Shows excellent harmony and expression. Best from 2018 through 2033. 3,400 cases made.
Wine EnthusiastOak, herb, fennel, hay and wild berry aromas lead the nose. The firm palate offers Morello cherry, oak, cinnamon, clove, Mediterranean herb and a confectionary note alongside tightly knit and austere tannins that need to unwind. Drink 2018-2030.
