2010 Brunello di Montalcino Vigna Paganelli Riserva, Il Poggione

“A dark, intensely brooding wine, the 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Paganelli bursts from the glass with an exotic tapestry of lavender, menthol, smoke, plums, tar, smoke and licorice, all framed by huge, massive tannins. There is plenty of fruit though, which suggests, the 2010 is going to age effortlessly for several decades. The Riserva won't be released until next year, but it should not be opened until it is at least 10-12 years old, and even then it is likely to be a strapping youngster.”

TASTING NOTES

The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Vigna Paganelli is magnificent. Huge swathes of tannin coat the palate as the 2010 shows off its power, breadth and overall intensity.
