A 2004 tasting note and a post on dinner at Tenuta Il Poggione

Our friend and esteemed American wine writer Tom Hyland recently posted this tasting note on the 2004 Tenuta il Poggione Brunello di Montalcino, which he tasted for the first time at Benvenuto Brunello in Montalcino in February.

This has been a personal favorite for many years and their 2004 is another superior wine. Aromas of red cherry, wild strawberry and cedar; excellent concentration; rich mid-palate, lengthy finish with youthful, refined tannins. Elegant through and through; 15-20 years, though considering the track record of this estate, I may be a bit conservative on this estimate!

He also wrote this post about the dinner we held at the winery before the event began. Thanks, Tom, for your kind words. Stay warm in Chicago!
