Tasting Notes

    Goedhuis, March 2009

    Wonderfully feminine. Piero's 2004 is perfumed and notably attractive on the nose. On the palate,it is plush, plump and complex with layer-upon-layer of sweet, crunchy morello cherries, raspberries and subtle hints of Tuscan herbs and silky, ultra fine tannins. More Richebourg than Chambertin. Despite its curves, it has underlying power that leads this poised wine to an infinite finish.

    Wine Advocate, July 2009,
    Score: 95

    The 2004 Brunello di Montalcino is just as beautiful in bottle as it was in cask. This is a supremely layered, exquisite Brunello that flows onto the palate with tons of grace and class. Medium in body, the wine reveals gorgeous inner perfume framed by ripe, silky tannins that caress the fruit all the way to the close. The wine gains freshness and volume in the glass, exhibiting supreme beauty. Sweet scents of roses linger on the long, refined finish. Simply put, this is sublime juice. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2022.

    Decanter, May 2009

    Starts delicate on the nose, but gradually opens to sweet perfumed fruit and spice, glacé cherry, strawberry, rose petal and mint tea. Huge concentration and definition of fruit, soft, ripe tannins with earthiness and enormous length.

Poggio di Sotto

Perched high above the vineyards encircling Castelnuovo dell'Abate lies the Montalcino estate ofPoggio di Sotto. An idyllic Mediterranean paradise surrounded by rosemary, lavender andsunbathing lizards, the estate is composed of 35 hectares in total, 12 of which are planted with the finest Brunello (Sangiovese) clones.Visiting the charming, philosophical and enthusiastic owner, Piero Palmucci, is like engaging inconversation with Pablo Neruda. With a twinkle in his eye, a mischievous smile and unparalleledcalmness, he speaks passionately and eloquently about his wines and his insights.Like many great estates, his individuality is reflected in his thought-provoking wines. Burgundianin style, Palmucci's creations are beautiful expressions of Brunello di Montalcino - perfumed,luxuriously silky, refined and complex - which linger copiously on the palate. If his wines couldcompose, they would be Debussy.

Region

Montalcino

Located southwest of Chianti, Montalcino came into its own in the late 1880s when local producer,Biondi-Santi, discovered a Sangiovese clone in his vineyard that was darker in colour than the rest. Its colour, however, was not its only attribute. It produced a wine with notable body, structure and length. He named it ‘brunello' meaning little dark one. This grape's genetic properties along with Montalcino's relatively temperate climate combine to create a wine stylistically different to that of more northerly Chianti. They are usually released approximately 5 years after the vintage following 2 to 4 years ageing in wood. The denomination of Riserva indicates a wine usually produced with more concentrated grapes than the traditional cuvéeand requires a minimum of one additional year of ageing.Today, Montalcino has become one of the most sought after appellations in the Tuscan region.
