Poggio di Sotto Brunello di Montalcino Riserva 2012
95 points - Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate, February 2018
Poggio di Sotto continues to impress with this stunning new vintage of its top-shelf wine. The 2012 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva shows volume and power; meanwhile, it brushes past the senses with the delicate flutter of a butterfly. The bouquet is infused with floral tones of red rose and lavender with fruity elements of cassis and wild cherry. You feel the warmth of the vintage specifically on the palate, where the weight and the density of the wine is more evident. There is a point of distinctive sweetness that lasts just for a moment, but that is a reoccurring theme in the 2012 Brunellos, generally speaking.
