Additional Notes: 100% Sangiovese, estate clonal selection.
90 pts - eRobertParker.com - A much more masculine wine, the 2007 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Poggio all'Oro is all about power. Smoke, tar, licorice, game and leather wrap around a deep, powerful core of fruit. There is little of the seductiveness of thePoggio alle Mura, instead this is a wine of pure power and masculine intensity. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2022. - AG (7/2013)
