2005 Brunello di Montalcino, Poggio Il Castellare


$45.00 per Bottle


1 Bottle




"Really powerful for the vintage, with plenty of ripe fruit and cedary new wood, yet balanced and pretty. Full-bodied, with polished tannins and a long finish. Needs a year or two to come completely together. Best after 2011. 3,335 cases made." Wine Spectator

"This may seem a little tight now to many people, but the berry, coffee and cherry character comes though. It’s full, yet polished and refined. Very pretty. Give it a year or two of bottle age." JamesSuckling.com

"Poggio il Castellare's 2005 Brunello di Montalcino is an attractive Brunello to drink over the next decade or so. Soft red fruit, spices, earthiness and herbs come together on a mid-weight frame. The intensity tapers off just a touch but on the finish, but the wine possesses lovely overall balance just the same." Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com
