Winemaker's Notes

The La Poderina Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Poggio Abate displays dark, ruby red color accompanied by aromas of dark berries, smoke, licorice and tobacco notes. Smooth and dark with notes of savory herbs, licorice and firm tannins; powerful finish.

Critical Acclaim

"Still remarkably primary, the 2007 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Poggio Abate is going to require at least a few years to come around. Today it is massive, packed and dense from start to finish. With time in the glass, the fruit gradually emerges. Raspberry jam, licorice mint and spices flesh out on the full-bodied, intense finish."
94 Points

"Riserva La Poderina presents an impenetrable wall of aromatic intensity with dark concentration and lovely density in the mouth. You’ll recognize dark fruit, polished mineral, leather, tobacco and powdered spice notes. The wine lasts long on the palate, driven by its bold structure."
94 Points

"Fascinating aromas of walnuts and berries with hints of fresh flowers. Full and super silky with wonderfully integrated tannins and a long, long finish. Gorgeous wine."
94 Points

Learn About Sangiovese

Sangiovese (SAHN-gee-oh-VAY-zee) Blood of Jove (literally translated) The principal grape of Chianti - in fact, the principle grape of all of Tuscany - has had its ups and downs. For a stint in the 70s and 80s, wines labeled Chianti contained cheap red wine packaged in a straw casked bottle, most popular for the candle holder it would become. But no more. Sangiovese re...
