Brunello di Montalcino 2010

98 points
“The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino is a striking wine that shows uncompromising varietal pureness, albeit in a most concentrated and elaborate form. This is what great Sangiovese is all about. This is a true standout that can be enjoyed for up to 20 years ahead.”
– Monica Larner, The Wine Advocate

Brunello di Montalcino 2010

95 points
“Rich, with excellent density, ripe cherry and plum fruit, and a well-integrated structure. Licorice, earth and tobacco notes add depth while this cruises to a long, tobacco- and mineral-tinged finish. Shows balance and grip.”
– Bruce Sanderson, Wine Spectator

Rosso di Montalcino 2013

90 points
“Bright red cherries, stone fruits, smoke and tobacco are some of the notes that jump from the glass in the 2013 Rosso di Montalcino. In this vintage, the Rosso is bright, floral and medium in body, all of which make it extremely versatile. This is another fabulous Rosso from Il Poggione and also a terrific introduction to the year in Montalcino.”
– Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media

Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Vigna Paganelli 2007

95+ points
“A huge, dramatic wine, the 2007 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva literally explodes from the glass. This is a decidedly exuberant, flashy wine loaded with dark fruit. Tobacco, smoke, tar and licorice all come alive in this big, broad-shouldered Riserva. Here, too, the wine’s balance is impeccable.”
– Antonio Galloni, The Wine Advocate
