Antonio Galloni - Wine Advocate
Poggio Antico’s 2003 Brunello di Montalcino
is the more classic of the two Brunellos. It reveals a pretty, accessible
expression of earthiness, tobacco and ripe red fruit with lovely
density and purity. The tannins are particularly finessed within
the context of the vintage yet the wine comes across as more tightly
wound than is normally the case. On the plus side, a lingering note
of sweetness from the oak frames the long finish.
Anticipated maturity: '08 - '16.
