Sporting cherry, strawberry, floral and leather aromas and flavors, this vibrant style is harmonious and structured, yet more elegant than powerful, with fine intensity and a lingering aftertaste.
Wine Enthusiast famously said:
"If you want to experience the energy, elegance and age worthy structure that first drew wine lovers and collectors to Brunello di Montalcino decades ago, then 2013 is your vintage."

And what a classic season it was. After two very hot growing seasons in the previous years, Spring's budbreak was cool. In the Fall, temps remained moderate and extended the harvest season, which in the right hands can make for elegant wines. Enter Poggio il Castellare, whose attention to detail (manual harvesting, two and half year initial barreling, then 20 month secondary re-barreling) allowed the season to slowly unfold in cool, dark cellars. And now upon release, we see the magical results.
