Description

The unmistakably classic red label of Brunello di Montalcino Riserva from Fattoria Poggio di Sotto escorts a now epic wine as the highest expression and excellence of one of the most famous Italian appellations in the world. A wine that the winery itself defines as “orchestral”, a term that well conveys the complexity, dynamism, elegance that emerge from its tasting.

Produced with low-yield grapes carefully selected several times and harvested by hand in the vineyards of Castelnuovo dell’Abate, from vines insistent on mixed soils protected by the secure profile of Mt. Amiata, Brunello Riserva makes its large groups of admirers and enthusiasts wait for an ageing period in 30hl oak barrels for 60 months, before resting in the bottle a further twelve without being filtered.

The 2015 vintage is notoriously of high quality, but with peculiar characteristics in the face of a climate that has put the winemakers to test and enhanced the quality of their work. The peaks of heat that characterized the vintage, especially in the area south of Montalcino, translate into a more powerful, muscular and warm style, with vigorous but not sharp nor excessive tannins, confirming the high quality of the grapes and an impressive ageing potential.

The complexity is already evident at a first and even distracted olfactory examination: dried black fruits alternate with raisins, cedar wood, tobacco and pleasant balsamic and even ethereal notes, motivating the taster to deepen more and more the examination enjoying the emotions given by an increasingly oxygenated wine. The tasting confirms the premises and perhaps exceeds expectations, delivering a fresh wine, with vigorous but not intrusive tannins, well counterbalanced by softness and which requires time to be well understood and explored in all its facets.

An exceptional expression of Brunello Riserva: this is the 2015 vintage, which insinuates firmly in the groove traced by the great work of this winery, where quality, attention to the raw material, tradition and full understanding of the expectations of its customers blend well into an unforgettable melody played by an orchestra that keeps making the history of Montalcino.
