Il Poggione Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Vigna Paganelli 2010
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Brunello di Montalcino|
Wine AdvocateThe 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Vigna Paganelli is a phenomenal achievement and a wine that captures not only the spirit of this classic vintage, but the true essence of an age-worthy wine like Brunello. This single vineyard Riserva is sharp, pristine and immaculate. It starts slow and shy, but then blossoms to beautiful intensity and aromatic brilliance. It delivers a very authentic and genuine read of Sangiovese with wild berry aromas followed by pressed violets, wet earth, tobacco and lightly toasted spice. The bouquet is seamless and very long in persistence. The same holds true for the mouthfeel. The wine delivers a fine and silky texture with a good dose of power and personality at the rear.
James SucklingThe aromas to this Brunello riserva are stunning with subtle forest fruits, orange peel and mushrooms. Full body, very fine tannins and a long and persistent finish. The flavors are so complex with earth and dark fruits. Very fine and dusty tannins. Drink or hold.
Wine SpectatorA dense, powerful version, packed with cherry, plum, herb, earth and underbrush flavors. Vibrant, demonstrating solid grip, this ends with echoes of fruit, earth and tobacco. Best from 2019 through 2032. 3,330 cases made.
Wine EnthusiastNew leather, truffle, baked earth, menthol and ripe dark-skinned berry aromas emerge on this concentrated red. The big, brawny palate delivers fleshy black cherry, white pepper, Asian spice, tobacco and chopped herb alongside a tannic backbone. You'll detect the heat of alcohol on the finish.
