The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is a big, voluptuous wine loaded with dark fruit. Black cherries, licorice, spices and new leather are some of the many notes that flow from this sensual, alluring wine. The 2006 Riserva boasts serious depth and richness all the way through to the huge finish. This is another striking wine from Poggio Antico. The Riserva spent 36 months in Slavonian oak casks. Anticipated maturity: 2016–2026.

Medium bright red. Warm aromas of plum, spices, marzipan and nutty oak. Plush, rich and pliant, showing terrific depth to its sweet red fruit flavors. Quite large-scaled for a Brunello from this estate, and surprisingly approachable now. Finishes with chewy but smooth tannins, excellent length and a taste of vanillin oak.

Sharply defined aromas of spice, chiseled mineral, dried tobacco and cassis open the bouquet of this dark, concentrated wine. There’s a floral note of spicy potpourri and cinnamon stick, tight tannins and bright acidity.
