La Poderina Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Poggio Abate 2008

La Poderina Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Poggio Abate 750ml 2008      
Sku: 1903243*

"Poggio Abate” is a special Brunello di Montalcino, with some unique characteristics; it is made from the best vineyards located near the famous Sant’Antimo Abbey. With a deep ruby red colour, with a bouquet of black cherries and red berries, it has a more complex level for the balance of vanilla and tabacco notes, through the use of barriques. Served at 18°C in large wine glasses, it is excellent with roast and stewed red meats, roasted game and aged cheese. With this wine la Poderina pays a tribute to Montalcino and its natural and artistic evidences.

The 2008 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Poggio Abate is another impeccable wine from La Poderina, only this expressions is a lot more expansive and saturated in terms of its density and concentration. A dark, supple texture is layered with ripe fruit, licorice, balsam herb and soft spice. This austere 2008 vintage shows good structure and extra bright acidity that will serve the wine well as it ages over the years. Drink: 2016-2026.

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..
