3 day lead-time required to confirm availability Why?

A wonderful long maturing red wine, high expression of the tradition in Montalcino’s wines productions. It has an intense ruby colour with burgundy hue and concentrated scent, enveloping, ethereal with hints of black cherry, wild berry and vanilla. The flavour is strong, quite tannic in youth, soft and persistent. Serve at 18°C in large glasses; it can be served with red and white roast meats, poultry, game and aged cheese.

La Poderina’s 2008 Brunello di Montalcino is one of the most delicious wines of the vintage. Freshly cut roses, red berries, cloves and mint are all woven together in a fabric of unusual class. Layers of fruit continue to develop, leading to a rich, creamy finish that is striking in its beauty. A relatively big, fruit-driven wine, the 2008 is all about balance. In this style, it is easily one of the very finest wines made in Montalcino. I have to say, it is also one of the most joyous, exuberant wines I tasted during my week in Montalcino. The 2008 was aged 60% in cask and 40% in barrel for 12 months, followed by another 12 months all in cask. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2023.

La Poderina is located just south of Montalcino near the village of Castelnuovo dell’Abate that is well known for the elegance and balance of its grapes. Thanks to the feeling that innovation serves tradition, wines by La Poderina mature in a mixture of French oak barriques and large wooden barrels. Vineyards are geared to produce 6 tons of grapes per hectare, that is significantly lower than the 8 tons allowed by law. Brunello is produced in two versions: the regular wine Brunello di Montalcino D.O.C.G. and the single vineyard selection Brunello di Montalcino Poggio Banale D.O.C.G.. In addition to that, La Poderina produces: Rosso di Montalcino D.O.C., Virgulto Rosso di Toscana I.G.T., Grappa di Brunello and Moscadello di Montalcino D.O.C..
