James Suckling Wine Spectator scores for the 2004 Brunello di Montalcino by Tenuta Il Poggione

IL POGGIONE BRUNELLO DI MONTALCINO VIGNA PAGANELLI RISERVA 2004, 92 points (out of 100)

Editor's Note: Offers ripe blueberry notes, with hints of violet, lilac and sandalwood. Full-bodied, with supersilky tannins and a long, fresh finish. Not a big wine, but balanced and pretty. Best after 2011. 3,335 cases made.–JS

IL POGGIONE BRUNELLO DI MONTALCINO 2005, 90 points (out of 100)

Editor's Note: This has a lovely nose of dried dark fruits, with flowers and sandalwood. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins and a serious amount of subdued fruit. Long and stylish. Chewy. Needs a little time in the bottle to come together. Best after 2012. 11,665 cases made.–JS
