2010 Brunello di Montalcino Poggio di Sotto

Average critic rating : 94.0 points



The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino is in no mood to show all its cards today. This is a decidedly dark, brooding Brunello for Poggio di Sotto. In 2010, the fruit is quite dark, which suggests a late harvest, perhaps pushed to the limit. At the same time, there is plenty of underlying structure and tannin. This is going to be a fascinating Brunello to follow over the next two decades or so, but readers should expect a wine that is stylistically a bit of a departure

This is a relatively young estate – Poggio di Sotto was founded in 1989 on the south-east side of Montalcino and is perfectly situated to give a perfect view of much of Montalcino itself. The property covers over 30 hectares, a third of which are given over to vines (the remainder either olive groves or forest).

There is a definite air of professionalism here: a spotless winery (albeit with a few builders walking around), an impeccable welcome, and everything in its place. This is reflected in the wines, which are very impressive in a clean and precise, rather than out and out modern, style.

Three wines are made: a Rosso, a Brunello di Montalcino and a Riserva, and all three are technically excellent. Whilst the estate might lack an artisanal feel, there is clearly some seriously good work going on here and the wines are very, very impressive.
