Parallels to the red wines of Burgundy abound in discussions of Poggio di Sotto. The Sangiovese wines released from this special property do always favor elegance and restraint over opulence and power, yet they never lack depth. The estate's Rosso di Montalcino routinely delivers depth of flavor and structural components that support long cellaring. Characterized by its floral nose and purity of fruit on the palate, Rosso di Montalcino from Poggio di Sotto is also thrilling to drink upon release. An ideal compliment for roast and braised red meats, game and aged cheese.

The 2017 Poggio di Sotto Rosso di Montalcino will need some time to fully open up. The nose is reticent, requiring quite a bit of coaxing, before a bouquet of fresh sweet strawberry, cherry, Tuscan spice box, dusty florals and hints of mint lift from the glass. On the palate, soft textures flood the senses, offset by tart red fruits, minerals and spice, as the 2018 seems to hover - well poised, almost weightless, yet still fully satisfying. The finish is long and very pretty, as fresh red fruits resonate above a tactile mix of acid, minerals and light tannin, giving way to a singular red floral note that seems to go on for minutes.

Rich notes of plum and black cherry are matched by wild rosemary, thyme and pine forest, with a hint of tar. Burly tannins guard the finish, yet overall this maintains good balance. Best from 2023 through 2032. 1,660 cases made, 166 cases imported.
