Il Poggione Rosso di Montalcino 2020
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Rosso di Montalcino|
The 2020 Rosso di Montalcino is dark and youthfully inward, as nuances of black currant and licorice are offset by crushed ashen stone. It's silky and enveloping, yet with a saline-core of minerality and bright acids that create a more tactile feel, as a saturation of tart red berries form toward the close. This tapers off long and lightly structured, yet still quite fresh, begging for a short stay in the cellar before revealing all of its charms. Wow. The 2020 from Il Poggione mixes the warmth of the vintage with the house style to create a truly captivating Rosso.
Aromas of ripe plum, camphor and oak-driven spice waft out of the glass. The full-bodied palate features fleshy black cherry, licorice and vanilla alongside close-grained tannins.
Showing mint, resin and earth aromas and flavors wrapped around cherry and strawberry fruit, this is backed by firm, assertive tannins and moderate length. Drink now through 2025. 5,000 cases imported.
