Col d'Orcia Brunello di Montalcino Poggio al Vento Riserva 2015

$165

A powerful version, this red delivers concentrated plum, black cherry, iron and earth flavors allied to a base of muscular tannins. The balance tips to the astringent side, but it's not overbearing, with ripe fruit returning on the finish. Needs time and food. Best from 2026 through 2042. 2,100 cases made, 200 cases imported.
