The power, purity, and elegance of Sangiovese is readily apparent in Poggio dell'Aquila's Brunello di Montalcino. Their beautiful 2016 release radiates with ripe Marasca cherry, black plum, wild herb, leather, and spiced mocha notes, while a finely textured cloak of tannins and striking acidity provide the structural integrity for graceful bottle aging. Deeply discounted, this 95-point Tuscan red will make a fine addition to any collection and bring pleasure for years to come!

A very polished nose with sandalwood, cocoa butter, spiced plums and toffee. It’s full-bodied with polished oak tannins. Ripe and very well made. Slightly burnt coffee aromas on the finish. Better after a few years. From organically grown grapes. Drink after 2025.

Made with organically grown Sangiovese, this has aromas of black-skinned berry, underbrush and leather. The juicy palate offers black cherry, star anise and tobacco alongside polished tannins and firm acidity. Drink 2023–2031.

The 2016 Poggio dell'Aquila Brunello di Montalcino lifts up from the glass with a display of savory herbs and menthol, giving way to bright cherry dusted in confectioners' sugar. It's silky and pliant with a mix of both red/black fruits, complemented by salty minerals and rich exotic spices. There's a note of roasted almond and marzipan here that seems somewhat out of place; yet it adds a sense of umami, as a fine coating of tannin leaves a classically dry expression.
