First of all our tasting affirms that 2013's structure can make the wine survive for another ten years. The colour is intense, bright rubied with a tight rim, pointing to a significant level of tannins. The rosebud nose also reveals hints of liquorice and classic sour cherry, with in-depth references of close berries and new leather point to muscular fruit strength. The sip releases the impetuous tannins of a young Sangiovese and a high concentration confirms wine of strength and vigour, which are indicators of ageing ability. The method used is very traditional, producing a 100% Sangiovese wine with an alcohol strength of 14.5% which is capable of extended ageing.
The leading scores of this vintage are more top than the stellar vintages like 2004, 2007, 2012 also points to its significant undervalue.
Vintage 2013 is under the shadow of 2010, which seems to be the only counterpoint against investing on Il Poggione Brunello di Montalcino 2013.
