This finessed regal Brunello flows onto the palate with seamless layers of perfumed fruit framed by silky finessed tannins. The wine remains extremely primary at this stage and its full range of aromas and flavors have yet to emerge but the sheer pedigree of this Brunello is unmistakable. The elegant refined finish lasts an eternity and subtle notes of menthol spices licorice and leather add final notes of complexity. The estate's 2004 Brunello is a wine to buy and bury in the deepest corner of the cellar. Brunello is never inexpensive but this is the real deal and in relative terms it is one of the world's great values in fine cellar worthy wine. Incredibly there are 18000+ cases of the 2004 Brunello so it should be fairly easy to source in various markets. The Brunello is made from four vineyards ranging from 250 to 400 meters in altitude all in Sant'Angelo in Colle. The wines from the various vineyards were aged separately in French oak casks prior to being assembled and bottled. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2034.I was completely blown away by the wines I tasted from Il Poggione this year. Readers who want to experience first-class Sangiovese from Montalcino won't want to miss these exceptional wines. Winemaker Fabrizio Bindocci and his team have done an exceptional job for which they deserve all the praise in the world.

Sexy nose offers raspberry spices coconut dried flowers tobacco and potpourri: almost Lafite-like. Then suave complex and energetic in the mouth offering lovely vinosity to the sappy red fruit and floral flavors. Finishes long and vibrant combining enticing sweetness and firm saline grip. Really spreads out horizontally on the back.
