ColleMassari Montecucco Rosso Riserva Poggio Lombrone 2016
|Italy, Tuscany, Montecucco
The 2016 Sangiovese Riserva Poggio Lombrone is drop-dead gorgeous and totally classic with a bouquet that opens with crushed black cherries, cooling sweet herbal tones and dusty cedar spice box. Time in the glass brings further depths of plum, cranberries and underbrush. This is velvety and rich. It's harmonious, as ripe woodland berries cascade across a core of salty acids offset by a twang of sour citrus, with fine tannins slowly mounting toward the close. While youthfully structured and dry through the finale, there's still pleasure to be found in the rosy inner florals, iron-tinged mineral tones and savory spices that linger throughout. Poggio Lombrone is a single-vineyard selection of Sangiovese vines that are over fifty years old. This spends eighteen months in thirty-hectoliter oak casks prior to bottling. The 2016 really captures the magic of this excellent Tuscan vintage. Bury a few in the cellar; you won't regret it.
This red has softened somewhat, offering raspberry, cherry, iron, tobacco and wild rosemary flavors. There are still assertive tannins on the back end, but this is complex, dense and energetic. Drink now through 2030. 1,660 cases made, 150 cases imported.
Subtle aromas of dark-skinned fruit, scorched earth and spice slowly emerge from the glass. The dense palate offers baked plum, clove and black pepper alongside assertive tannins and the heat of evident alcohol.
