Tenuta Il Poggione, Brunello di Montalcino 1988

Tenuta Il Poggione, Brunello di Montalcino 1988 #2

Mature garnet with hints of ochre.  An intricate Poggione: small red berries, currant and cherry; sottobosco, old violets, green tobacco leaf.  This has profound pitch and posture.  Very fine texture and grip.   Distinguished and mineralic at the end.  Now – 2018.  We can only hope my ’97, ’01 and ’04 turn out as well.
