A complex nose introduces this wine whose freshness belies its age. There is oak spiciness and red and black fruit true to the varietal. Acidity is well integrated with the wine’s powerful body, supported by mature tannins. The mid palate is dense and succulent leading to an elegant finish.
Col d’Orcia’s Poggio al Vento was one of Tuscany’s first single-vineyard Brunellos, first released in 1982. As the winery’s most celebrated wine, it is made only in excellent vintages with just 20,000-25,000 bottles produced. The advanced age of the vines (over 40 years old) generates concentrated flavours and aromas to the wine, while the well-drained calcareous soils contribute structure.
This flagship red has only recently arrived in its proper ageing window and it’s worthy of your cellar for a good while longer.
