Ratings and Tasting Notes:

WA=93+ The Poggio di Sotto 2017 Rosso di Montalcino is a terrific wine and one of a handful of Rossi that I can recommend for longer cellar aging. This Rosso is built like a Brunello and shows the qualities needed to further its evolution. In this 20,000-bottle release, those attributes include complexity, freshness and a solid, mid-weight structure. You hardly feel the heat of the vintage, save for those hints of extra richness and concentration that add to the wine's important and pleasurable mouthfeel. This is a terrific Rosso with the long-term perspective of its big brother Brunello. AG=92 It took a while for collectors to feel comfortable with the new releases after Piero Palmucci sold the iconic Poggio di Sotto property to Claudio Tipa, owner of ColleMassari and Grattamacco, in 2011. You could count me in the skeptical camp for years, while being told that very little would be changed in the vineyards and winery, yet tasting new releases without being overly impressed. However, I can now firmly say, having recently tasted the 2010 and 2013 Brunello Riservas, and now the 2015 Brunello, that Poggio di Sotto is officially back. We really shouldn’t be surprised, as Palmucci put his heart and soul into identifying this esteemed terroir in Castelnuovo dell’Abate, and then planting the perfect clones of Sangiovese to take full advantage of it. This continues to be one of the most Burgundian of all Brunellos, and worthy of it’s lofty price. JS=91 All about finesse here with clean red and black-fruit aromas and flavors. Medium body, fine and lightly firm tannins and a medium finish. Nicely done. Drink now. WS+89 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.
