James Suckling’s recently released 2012 Brunello di Montalcino report lauds the region’s “beautiful aromas, vibrant fruit, lively acidity, and ultra-fine tannins.” He compares 2012 to the legendary 2010, though believes its closest match are the “2004s, a harmonious and gorgeous year for Brunellos.”
Suckling’s report includes a stunning review for Il Poggione, awarding our Brunello a 93 pt score with the following tasting notes:
“Walnuts and cedar with plums and hints of milk chocolate. Always subtle. Medium body, a solid core of fruit and medium-chewy tannins. Center palate of cherry fruit. Give it a year or two to soften.”
2012 will release from our winery in early February- more to come!
