If you prefer an elegant Brunello, instead of the overwrought style prevalent in many of the region's wines today, then you'll find this La Poderina the perfect choice. This venerable estate is in Castellnuovo dell'Abate, where the meager, well-drained marl and sandy limestone soils produced some of the region's most refined and structured wines. You'll find this La Poderina a brilliant example of this style and the vintage's classic qualities. One of the best buys of the vintage!

"Blueberries, flowers and raspberries. Love the nose, like so many others. Full body, with fine tannins and a silky textured finish. So much going on here. Class. Best after 2013." 95/100 James Suckling

"La Poderina's Brunello shows impressive balance between its bright fruit and sassy spice components. On the close, the wine exhibits a tight, firm and penetrating feel that is carried forth by acidity and the natural firmness of the tannins." 92/100 Wine Enthusiast

"Good full red. Withdrawn but pure aromas of cherry and iron. Juicy red fruit and mineral flavors are a bit sullen today but show good depth. Began serious and savory but time in the glass brought more texture and sweetness. Finishes with ripe tannins and very good length." 90/100 Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
