The colour of 2007 Poggio All'Oro Riserva Brunello di Montalcino is intense ruby to garnet. The nose shows an intense bouquet, fruity and spicy with tobacco and chocolate notes. The palate is full, austere, quite velvety and tannic. With a few bottles, only the exceptional vintage are made by the finest Poggio all'Oro vineyard. the Sangiovese grape achieves the greatness. Aged for 5 years, this wine emerges with exceptional depth, character and ageing potential.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
A much more masculine wine, the 2007 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Poggio all' Oro is all about power. Smoke, tar, licorice, game and leather wrap around a deep, powerful core of fruit. There is little of the seductiveness of the Poggio alle Mura, instead this is a wine of pure power and masculine intensity. The hugely tannic finish has little of the sexiness of this radiant vintage. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2022.
