Tasting Notes

The 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Poggio alle Mura sneaks up to full-bodied intensity, but slowly at first. I tasted this wine twice over a 12-hour period, and it took time to open. Dried cassis and berry fruit tones are followed by tar, licorice and rosemary essence. Give it time and this Riserva is an open and accessible expression that underlines intensity, depth and the broad shoulders expected of a Riserva. The fruit is darker and the oak is more prominent, so is the general extraction and richness. This wine draws its fruit from a vineyard with in-house select clones planted in 1982. With 20,000 bottles made, we won't see this wine until April 2021.

So opulent, plush and enticing with blackberry, blueberry, chocolate and walnut undertones. It’s full-bodied with balanced, refined and silky tannins and a flavorful finish. Tannic and juicy. Better after 2024.

The 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Poggio alle Mura Riserva boasts a rich and deeply alluring bouquet, mixing crushed black cherries, plum and confectioners’ spice, along with lifting notes of cedar and mint. It’s soft in texture, supported by zesty acids with tart red berry fruits and wild herbs tones, yet linear in style and a bit one-dimensional. This drops off rather quickly, leaving a subtle coating of fine tannin along with hints of strawberry rosy florals.
