Herewith a new tasting note for our 2007 Brunello di Montalcino by Antonio Galloni. Note that the wine writer has augmented the score from 94 (in a previous tasting) to 95.

Tenuta Il Poggione 2007 Brunello di Montalcino
95 points

The estate’s 2007 Brunello di Montalcino has developed beautifully over the last year. Freshly cut flowers, dark raspberries, spices and mint all take shape in a 2007 that impresses for its freshness and pure energy. Sweet roses and violets linger on the finish. I imagine the 2007 will enjoy a very broad drinking window. Today it is drop-dead gorgeous. The combination of dry extract above 34 and acidity north of 6% is exceedingly rare and suggests the wine will age for several decades. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2047.
