WS 91
Wine Spectator, October 1995
Delicious from start to finish; quite powerful. It's very ripe and very sweet-tasting and melts in the mouth showing tons of plum red berry and chocolate flavors. Give it until 1997 to come together. 3750 cases made.

Although the outstanding 1990 Poggio Antico Brunello di Montalcino is ripe and dense with medium to full body it is not nearly as sexy and opulent as this estate's 1985. It exhibits plenty of density but it seems less... Although the outstanding 1990 Poggio Antico Brunello di Montalcino is ripe and dense with medium to full body it is not nearly as sexy and opulent as this estate's 1985. It exhibits plenty of density but it seems less impressive than I would have thought given previous efforts from this winery. A weedy tobacco component adds to the wine's complexity. This is not the most backward 1990 Brunello but it does require 2-4 years of cellaring. It should drink well for 10-15 years.Importer: Empson USA Alexandria VA; tel. (703) 684-0900
