Poggio di Sotto – 17/12/2012

Rosso di Montalcino 2007
Very light delicate pure colour, fine and lovely brick colour. Bright and fresh on the nose, good red fruit but showing some lovely maturity and finesse. Light clean and yet subtle and pure. Wonderfully light fresh and clean, good fruit concentration without being dark and dense. Not simple fruit, refined and balanced with some lovely savoury notes as well. Good core of acidity but lovely soft round tannin structure.

Brunello di Montalcino 2007
A little darker and denser showing a little sweet cherry oak character. Slightly rosy red floral elements as well. More complex and a little closed still, certainly ripe and juicy. Bright fresh lovely dark red fruit, wonderfully fresh with excellent acids, still youthful in fruit and tannins, but dense with plenty of complexity and time to develop over time. The same soft ripe rich tannin structure but plenty of freshness and mouth-feel very important.
