97pts Wine Spectator

This powerful Brunello is reined in by a vivid acidity and perfectly managed tannins that are both refined and well-integrated. Aromas of sweet berries and orange peel make for an inviting introduction, while broad and mouth-filling flavors of black cherry, graphite, flowers and stony minerality insist that you take off your coat and stay a while.

95pts Wine Enthusiast

Rose, perfumed berry, truffle and new leather aromas create the enticing nose. Full-bodied and savory, the elegantly structured palate delivers crushed raspberry, ripe Morello cherry, licorice and mocha framed in velvety, fine-grained tannins

92pts James Suckling

Aromas of sweet berries and orange peel with some dried flowers. It’s medium-bodied with very fine tannins and a succulent finish. Nice citrus undertone here.

91pts Jeb Dunnuck

Poggio Landi sources grapes from three vineyard locations across the region, Montosoli, La Crociona and Castelverdelli. The 2016 Brunello di Montalcino has aromas of dried red plum, cedar, and pine resin. The palate has a profile of dried cherry, tomato leaf, and Mediterranean herbs, with refreshing acidity and drying tannins. The 2016 Brunello was aged for 38 months in large French oak.

Winemaker Notes

Complex on the nose, with distinctive nuances of ripe red fruit and spices such as black pepper and licorice. The same ripe red fruits continue along the palate, accompanied by vanilla notes. Long, layered finish.
