About

91

"The 2014 Brunello di Montalcino is a wine that stays in its lane. It offers pretty intensity but it never goes overboard. In the mouth, it shows silky, long texture but it never feels overdone or too powerful. I could say the same thing of many Brunellos from this cool & rainy vintage that produced understated wines. Bold cherry & cassis segue to spice, leather & lightly toasted rosemary sprig. There are pretty floral notes on the close with rose & lavender bud. Some 65,000 bottles were produced."

"Orange-peel and plum aromas follow through to a medium body, silky tannins and a fresh finish. Drink now."

Product Description:

Only 11 acres of Vines are used to make this wine! Located just south east of down town Montalcino, this terroir driven property cares more about expressing purity over any other aspect of winemaking.

Big fruit upfront with heavy earth on the mid palate, and a hint of richness from the limited amount of time in new oak. 2014s can be consumed now, but save a couple as they will get better over time!

"La Poderina is located in Montalcino in the area of Castelnuovo dell'Abate well known for the particular 'elegance and balance' of its wines. The Estate is located in front of the histyorical Benedectine abbey of Sant'Antimo, that dates back to I century a.C. Montalcino is nestled in Val D'Orcia, that was declared in 2004 from the UNESCO 'Heritage of Humanity'." -Winery
