Poggio Nardone Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2016
94 pts. Wine Advocate:
"The 2016 Brunello di Montalcino offers richness and extra fruit density with fleshy cherry and plum followed by spice, tar, tobacco and campfire ash. This expression embraces a contemporary taste profile with fermentation and aging in oak. This results in softness and textural richness that feels especially velvety and snug in this vintage. There is some tightness on the tannins but that should subside within the next few years."
94 pts. James Suckling:
"Intensely earthy nose of dried porcini mushrooms and truffles. Perfumed, fresher fruit on the palate with red cherries, cranberries and some dark chocolate. This is a well structured, full red with grippy yet fine-grained and pretty tannins. Give it a few years to soften. Drink after 2024."
