Poggio Antico Brunello di Montalcino Riserva 2001
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Brunello di Montalcino|
The Riserva is an intense ruby red, with garnet hues. Its bouquet is usually evolved and austere, with hints of wild berries, leather, and roasted coffee. In the mouth it has a fully developed rich structure, and is very elegant and smooth thanks to its rich tannins. It is extremely well balanced and rounded, with a persistent silky finish.
Gorgeous aromas of crushed blackberry, rose and mineral follow through to a full-bodied palate, with velvety tannins and a long, long finish. Rich, layered and powerful. Best after 2010.
