Why We're Buying

Il Poggione Vigna Paganelli Riserva is the equivalent of a straight A student. Each year, it earns ratings from critics in the high 90s, including the Vinibuoni d'Italia Golden Star award for the 2006 and 2005 vintages. Not only is it ripe and rich, but, as wine critic James Suckling put it, "This stunning Brunello has decades of life ahead of it."

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Vigna Paganelli is huge, powerful and totally implosive. The seductive allure of the 2007 is nowhere to be found. Instead, the 2006 is built on a serious spine of formidable tannin and dark red/black fruit. Hints of tar, licorice, rose petals and tobacco inform the powerful, virile finish. The 2006 is going to require considerable patience, but it is clearly a jewel of a wine, even at this early stage. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2046.
