Poggio Antico - Brunello Di Montalcino 2016

The 2016 Brunello di Montalcino offers a pure and classic expression of the vintage with bright fruit tones, wild cherry, toasted nut, blue flower and forest floor. Whereas the other wines in the Poggio Antico portfolio undergo aging in smaller tonneaux, this wine is aged in large Slavonian casks instead. You taste the lift and brightness of the fruit, and it's all quite lovely. Grapes are sourced across a 13-hectare site at a very high 500 meters in elevation.

Grape: 100% Sangiovese 

Region: Brunello de Montalcino, Tuscany, Italy

Nose: Ruby with a hint of brick at the rim.  Red fruits, cherry, spice and some balsamic notes.

Palate: Supremely elegant, the focused palate shows precision and great energy, featuring juicy red cherry, pomegranate, white pepper and black tea set against chiseled, refined tannins.

Finish: Vibrant acidity keeps it balanced while a salty mineral note lingers on the close. Fantastic showing.
