"The organic Poggio Landi 2018 Brunello di Montalcino does a great job at putting bright fruit in the spotlight, and this is not something that you can always say of its peers, especially in this challenging vintage. Red cherry, raspberry and blackcurrant sit at the core of this wine. Those tones are neatly framed by light spice, pressed rose and candied orange peel. This wine stand outs out in a crowd thanks to its lively primary intensity and its transparent Sangiovese characteristics. The close is lean and streamlined. This wine sees 38 months in large casks made with French oak. Production is an ample 90,000 bottles, making this wine easy to locate."

"Delivers cherry and strawberry fruit shaded by earth and spices, all backed by a line of compact, vibrating tannins. This red settled down with aeration, yet needs time to integrate, still tipping to the dry side in the balance. Best from 2025 through 2040. 7,500 cases made, 3,000 cases imported."
"2018 was a classic vintage. The weather was mild, not too hot compared to recent years with maturation a bit longer. The 2018 has a good acidity, elegance, well-constructed and persistent tannins and a very fresh fruit base." - Winery
