Poggio Nardone Brunello di Montalcino 2015

Poggio Nardone Brunello di Montalcino is made from 100 percent Sangiovese Grosso.

The rich nose displays scents of spices combined with aromas of small red ripe fruits, blackberry and blueberry.
Well structured, determined and elegant, with round and silky tannins. Very nice finish.

Alcoholic fermentation was done in tank, maloactic fermentation in oak barrels. Wine was then aged for 3 years in French oak barrels. 


Review:

"This is a lovely expression of Sangiovese with a full and generous disposition. The Poggio Nardone 2015 Brunello di Montalcino offers bright cherry, cassis, raspberry and other red berry fruits. Those fruity high notes are followed by savory tones of forest floor, candied orange peel, autumnal leaf and baking spice. The wine offers a smooth and silky mouthfeel with well-integrated tannins and a long, polished finish. This is a clean and compact interpretation of Brunello with the amped up and generous characteristics of this sunny vintage. Here is a generous Brunello worthy of a Fiorentina steak. Some 25,000 bottles comprised this release. - Monica Larner"

- Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (October 2020), 93 points


"A ripe but composed Brunello di Montalcino with tar, leather, dried brambleberries, dried tea leaves and ash. Chewy and foursquare on the full-bodied palate; the rustic tannins give this a silty, grainy quality. Decadent and powerful. Drink from 2025."

Poggio Nardone Brunello di Montalcino Riserva 2012

A ruby red garnet color, ripe fruit aromas, dried fruits, hints of licorice and scents of vanilla. Robust and harmonious in the mouth, a rich texture. The wine is only produced in the best vintages.

The grapes are coming from a vineyard planted at 400 meters above sea level. The soil is mainly marl and limestone. 
The density of vines per hectare is 5,000 plants, which is equivalent to 2,000 vines per acre. 
The pruning technique used is cordon 
The grapes used are 100% Sangiovese grosso
Alcoholic fermentation was done in tank, while the Malo-Lactic fermentation was carried in oak barrels. 
Wine was then aged for one year in big French oak barrels and 3 years in Slavonian oak barrels.


Review:

"With only 1,000 bottles produced, the 2012 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is a precious wine that might prove difficult to locate. This is a dark and syrupy expression with black fruit aromas of blackberry preserves and prune. You definitely taste the warmth and sunshine in this hot-vintage Sangiovese. The bouquet is intense and rich, but the wine is not as long-lived in terms of mouthfeel. This is a wine of immediate power and volume. - Monica Larner"

- Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (Issue #235, February 2018), 92 points


"Medium dark red. High-pitched red berry and floral aromas, plus a hint of underbrush and smoked beef adding weight. Shows good depth and spicy red fruit character in the mouth, featuring a creamy texture and flourishes of cinnamon and mocha. The finish showcases lingering red fruit and savory elements. Much deeper and more interesting than Poggio Nardone’s disappointing 2013 Brunello. - Ian D'Agata"

- Antonio Galloni's Vinous (April 2018), 91 points


"Deep cherry flavors darken into tones of tobacco and damp leaves as this robust Brunello is exposed to air. Layers of black spice and grilled meat add dimension, the flavors warmed by ample alcohol.”

"A red with attractive fruit and walnut undertones, delivering plenty of character and enjoyment as a simple rosso. It’s medium-bodied with firm yet creamy-textured tannins and a delicious finish. Drink now."

Winery: Querca al Poggio

Querca al Poggio Estate:

Querca al Poggio is situated about 400 metres a.s.l. at Monsanto, in the municipality of Barberino Val d'Elsa.

Owned by the Rossi family, the property extends over 100 hectares of woodland nature reserve where vines and olive trees are cultivated to organic farming protocols.

In 1997, Michela and Vittorio embarked on an extensive renewal programme of wine operations, from gradual replanting of the fifteen hectares under vine to rationalisation of the cellars and the introduction of meticulously selected mid-sized oak containers to conserve the original features of the sangiovese and other traditional nature varieties grown on the estate.

The heart of the winery is a nineteenth century farming settlement and what was once a monastery belonging to the Vallombrosan brothers from nearby Badia a Passignano.

Sangiovese has been joined in the new vineyards by plantings of ciliegiolo, colorino, canaiolo and malvasia nera. We have sought to combine new planting techniques with the latest findings on clones and rootstock to respect the local territory and bring out the full potential of the varieties. Wherever possible, we have used budwood from estate vines for regrafting.

Vineyards are located on the hill, half overlooking the north valley towards Barberino Val d'Elsa and half looking south towards Castellina. The structure of the limestone and clay soil with sections of schist and calcareous-clay galestro, and the special location of the vineyards afforded by the geological formation of the hill itself, ensure sunlight and low humidity while the woodland setting encourages a healthful site climate.
