95+ pts. for Brunello Di Montalcino 2012 from Wine Advocate

We are exciting and honored to be awarded 95+ points from Wine Advocate for the 2012 Brunello Di Montalcino.

“Il Poggione is a Brunello superstar and a vintage like this reveals every reason why that affirmation is true.  From the second the 2012 Brunello di Montalcino pours into the glass, you know you are in for something special.  The wine is darkly saturated and rich in appearance.  Absent are those slightly amber or browning hues you often get with Sangiovese in a hot vintage.  Nor does the wine show flat or tired characteristics.  Instead, the quality of fruit is vibrant and rich.  This is a healthy, generous and exuberant Brunello with dark density and succulent fruit flavors that are followed by integrated spice and tobacco.  The balance is impressive and one thing you get here is fresh acidity.  This is not to be underestimated, because the acidity quota in the 2012 vintage across the appellation is not as high or evident as usual.  This is one of the year’s best Brunellos “ – Monica Larner (Wine Advocate)
