2006 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva, Paganelli, Tenuta Il Poggione


$90.00 per Bottle


16 Bottles




"The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Vigna Paganelli is huge, powerful and totally implosive. The seductive allure of the 2007 is nowhere to be found. Instead, the 2006 is built on a serious spine of formidable tannin and dark red/black fruit. Hints of tar, licorice, rose petals and tobacco inform the powerful, virile finish. The 2006 is going to require considerable patience, but it is clearly a jewel of a wine, even at this early stage. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2046. It's hard to know where to start with these new releases from Il Poggione, as every wine I tasted was strikingly beautiful. This is a great showing from father and son team Fabrizio and Alessandro Bindocci. Il Poggione's Brunello di Montalcino remains one of the most fairly priced, ageworthy wines on the planet. Readers may want to take a look at my video interview with Alessandro Bindocci posted on www.erobertparker.com for more on Il Poggione." Antonio Galloni, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate #200

"Bright, dark red with ruby highlights. Youthfully medicinal aromas of dark fruits and minerals. Brooding and primary today, with powerful black cherry, licorice, mineral and menthol flavors dominated by the wine's firm tannic spine. This extremely backward, structured riserva will need a good eight to ten years of aging and should be long-lived, but it's tough going today." Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

"An intense red, but well-mannered, offering perfumed cherry, currant and balsamic flavors, all supported by firm tannins, with a lingering finish. Everything is in the right proportion. Best from 2014 through 2027. 1,000 cases imported." Wine Spectator

"Very deep, almost impenetrable, with very small rim. Real riserva quality with good balance and freshness. Lots of concentration without going over the top and with grainy tannin that still needs to be absorbed. Touch alcoholic, otherwise complete." Walter Speller, JancisRobinson.com
