2014 poggio di sotto, brunello di montalcino
Why We're Buying
Poggio di Sotto has established itself as one of premier Brunello producers in Tuscany. The estate, which is part of ColleMassari Domaine, draws upon the rocky soils and Mediterranean climate to produce highly coveted sangiovese wines. Poggio di Sotto Brunello di Montalcino jumped 46.5% from 2017 to 2021.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
I suppose I could see myself spending $100 for the current (2016) release of Poggio di Sotto’s Rosso di Montalcino, but I don’t foresee paying $300 for the 2014 Brunello di Montalcino. With a mere 4,000 bottles produced, this is a beautiful wine—there’s no doubting its quality. This is an elegant, albeit somewhat undertone, Brunello from a cool and slow vintage that did develop pretty aromas, but did little to create age-worthy structure or power. Overall, this is a near-term vintage to enjoy in a time frame that overlaps with the 2016 Rosso di Montalcino in my opinion. This Brunello offers dried cherry aromas followed by flint, crushed mineral and scorched earth.
