2001 TASTING NOTES:

The 2001 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Poggio al Vento is all nuance and class. Delicate scents of tobacco, crushed berries, dried flowers and spices are woven together in a perfumed Brunello that emphasizes elegance over sheer power. In 2001 the crop was reduced by 50% because of hail damage. Today 2001 looks to be a relatively early maturing vintage for the Riserva.
-Antonio Galloini, 94pts

2008 TASTING NOTES:

Another magnificent 2008, this tentative blend of the estate's flagship 2008 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Poggio al Vento is impeccably layered from start to finish. I hope I can accurately convey with words just how vivid and alive the 2008 Poggio al Vento is, such a rarity for a vintage in which most wines are one-dimensional. Tar, smoke, licorice and menthol cloves meld into a finish laced with baritone depth. The Poggio al Vento is one of the very few 2008s I can say I am truly excited to follow over the coming years, and in the case of this wine, decades. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2048.
 - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, 93-96 pts

A wine of remarkable finesse and nuance, the 2008 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Poggio al Vento is exceptionally beautiful. The 2008 is refined, silky and nuanced, especially within the context of the vintage. Freshly cut flowers, cedar, tobacco and anise are all beautifully delineated throughout. I am quite impressed with how well the 2008 has come together over the last few years. Two thousand eight will be remembered as the year of the devastating mid-August hail. Quite miraculously, the Poggio al Vento emerged pretty much unscathed.
-Antonio Galloni, 95+pts


2010 TASTING NOTES:

Medium deep red.  Flinty nuances complicate strawberry, floral and blood orange aromas. Deep, dense and almost brooding on the palate, but with outstanding precision to the spicy red fruit and earth flavors. Finishes with substantial fine-grained tannins and outstanding length. Still quite closed, even imploded, I'd lay this beauty down for six or seven years.
-Antonio Galloni, 93pts
