2010 il poggione, brunello di montalcino, vigna paganelli riserva
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 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. (ML)
