Intense ruby red colour. Fruity bouquet with red berry notes. Very well structured, mellow, long-lasting flavour with smooth, velvety tannins
Vinous 91 points - Bright red cherries, stone fruits, smoke and tobacco are some of the notes that jump from the glass in the 2013 Rosso di Montalcino. In this vintage, the Rosso is bright, floral and medium in body, all of which make it extremely versatile. This is another fabulous Rosso from Il Poggione and also a terrific introduction to the year in Montalcino.
Wine Advocate 89 points - The 2013 Rosso di Montalcino is a dark and saturated wine with aromas that are much more masculine and muscular than your standard Rosso. The wine awards whiffs of dark cherry, cedar wood, spice, licorice and wet earth. All the while it offers a pretty portrait of Montalcino’s southern subzone where the weather is slightly more influenced by Mediterranean patterns. The mouthfeel delivers a touch of acidic bitterness that is reminiscent of white cherry or cranberry. This Rosso can be cheerfully consumed within the next three to five years. (Feb 2015)
