The 2012 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Poggio Abate flaunts a decidedly opulent and lavish personality. The wine is dark and heavy in appearance, with inky colors of black and ruby red. The bouquet opens to ripe tones of cherry or blackberry marmalade with pretty veins of spice and licorice woven deep within its fabric. The ripeness is very apparent (almost too much so), but the wine also offers an elegant mouthfeel that puts its various elements back into balance.

Some very rich, creamy oak and spice aromas with a big hit of dark fruits and rich ripe plum and red cherry flavors. Plum cakes, lots of spices and drive too. A much riper style.

La Poderina’s riserva shows depth and concentration, mingling notes of dried cherry and cassis with fresher fruit flavors. The wine aged for 15 months in French oak tonneaux and an equal amount of time in large Slavonian casks, picking up some vanilla and sweet spice accents that complement the rich fruit flavors. It takes a warm and savory turn on the finish, even as the spice notes linger.
