Tasting Notes

Vinous – 94

Dusty cherry and leather are complemented by cedar spice box and sage as the 2012 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Poggio al Vento opens in the glass. It’s silky-smooth and smoky, with dark mineral-tinged red berries and sour citrus tones cascading across the palate. Grippy tannins linger long, and although this is structured, there’s a bit of early appeal here that should make the 2012 more enjoyable sooner than later, yet still excellent over the medium term. I’m loving it today, and I feel that extra time in bottle has really brought forward a greater sense of harmony. This is an excellent effort in a warm and dry vintage. [Eric Guido, 11/01/2022]

Robert Parker – 95

The 2012 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Poggio al Vento is a monumental wine from this storied appellation in southern Tuscany. From a warm vintage, this is a deeply textured, rich and succulent rendition of Sangiovese. You taste the exuberant flavors of sun-drenched fruit. However, you also taste some evolution (remember, we are talking about a wine released seven years after the harvest) with tarry notes of toasted spice, licorice and Spanish cedar. This wine ages in large oak casks (of various sizes) for four years followed by an additional two years in bottle. We can look forward to more bottle evolution as the wine moves forward in time. Some 20,000 bottles were made. [Monica Larner, 23/01/2019]

Anticipated maturity: 2020-2040
