Jakov, Hi.....


Following is my tasting note for the wine in question. I have several bottles cellaring quietly in my personal cellar and do not intend to open the next for at least two years longer.

Best
Rogov


Tenuta Il Poggione, Brunello di Montalcino, 1997: An old fashioned Brunello, so dark in color that it almost refuses to reflect light and so heavy that even the tiniest of sips seems to fill the mouth with flavors and aromas. In addition to the usual plum and minty flavors that often typify this wine, look as well for licorice and a gentle but pleasing undercurrent of rosemary. Hold for another 3 – 4 years before starting to drink and then look forward to comfortable cellaring until 2010 – 2015. Score 93. (Tasted at VinItaly 12 Apr 2002)
