Miraculous Finesse and Precision
2013 Poggio di Sotto Brunello di Montalcino

Posted by Ian McFadden

Poggio di Sotto drives home just how finessed and nuanced Brunello can be.

In many people's minds, Brunello is a wine of raw power.

For us, it's most compelling when grace and complex aromatics steal the show. Few producers in Brunello hit the mark in this regard the way that Poggio di Sotto does.

Poggio di Sotto's 2013 Brunello promises to be one of the most exciting releases in some time. For classicists, it seems destined to be one of the greats. The vintage played perfectly into Poggio di Sotto's hands. 2013 saw a cool, wet spring and a beautiful July, August and September. What resulted are wines of incredible purity, focus and class.

From the 2013 expect a structured and nicely concentrated Brunello with an almost magical precision and aristocratic elegance. You'll also find an incredible complexity with an amazing procession of spice, flowers, crushed rock and earth.

This promises to be an absolutely thrilling Poggio di Sotto. It's a vintage that brings the estate's classicism into clear focus. For fans of Poggio di Sotto, this is a don't miss.
