La Poderina Brunello di Montalcino 2010
|Appellation||Brunello di Montalcino|
James SucklingA gorgeous red with dark-berry, blueberry and violet character. Full body, fine, integrated tannins with dark chocolate, and a delicious finish. Lots of everything here. Very balanced. Formally La Poderina. Drink in 2015.
VinousLa Poderina's 2010 Brunello di Montalcino is a classic wine from this southern edge of Montalcino. Dark red cherry, plum, smoke, spice and leather notes open up in a rich, resonant wine bursting at the seams with personality. The 2010 needs a few years to soften, but it is already striking and absolutely delicious.
Wine SpectatorPacked with ripe cherry, plum and blackberry flavors, this red is rich and harmonious, its structure embedded in the texture, with spice and tobacco notes adding depth. Dense and long, with a lingering mineral element. Best from 2018 through 2032. 4,200 cases made.
