WINEMAKER NOTES Ruby red color with garnet notes. Intense, concentrated nose of black cherries, wild berries and vanilla. On the palate it is rich, full bodied, quite tannic in youth, soft and persistent. Perfect with roasted white or red meat, poultry, game and aged cheeses.
WINE CRITICS JS94James Suckling : Plenty of dark cherries, cedar, sandalwood and licorice on the nose. Full-bodied with firm and polished tannins that nicely melt into the wine. Pure and beautiful fruit. Give this time to open. Better after 2023.
RP92Robert Parker's Wine Advocate : The 2017 Brunello di Montalcino is characterized by some of those same earthy notes of crushed limestone and baked clay that we saw so clearly in the other two entry-level red wines released by this estate. Wild cherry and dried raspberry cede to oregano, basil or balsam herb. However, overall the fruit intensity is faded. The tannins are on the dry side, and perhaps the heat of the vintage reveals itself there with greater clarity. This wine is best served in the near term.
ABOUT THE WINERY : La Poderina is located in Montalcino, acquired by Saiagricola in 1988 and has been the "dependance" in Montalcino of the group. With 20 hectares of vineyard, situated in the southwest part of Montalcino, it is found in a perhaps little known position but certainly one of the most valid of the entire zone. Production is centered on the renewal of the enological style of Brunello, a famous red wine, but sometimes a bit too much repressed by traditional methods, which are in certain ways obsolete.
ABOUT THE WINES : The wines of La Poderina, on the other hand, undergo an ageing process in little barrels for years, barriques of French rovere next to large casks, but overall in the vineyard systems of highly qualitative cultivation are adapted, that nothing gives into the quantity of the production for vine stock, with surrender that amply maintain under 8 ton (200 pounds) per acre according to the regulations. Difficult decisions, without a doubt, but also the only possibility if you want to follow with coherence the objective of the maximum possible quality. A tough commitment given the international prestige that a wine like Brunello di Montalcino possesses and in particular that of the sub zone of Castelnouvo dell'Albate, that stands out for its elegance and equilibrium.
It is in this light that the wine making research that the technical staff of La Poderina have been carrying out for 10 years, has to be considered. Emphasizing as much as possible the typical characteristics, not only of Brunello or Rosso but also of the specific area in question. The achievements are greatly encouraging and open an opportunity for new interpretation of a great wine with Tuscan and Italian traditions like Brunello di Montalcino.
