Il Poggione, Brunello di Montalcino 2006, Vigna Paganelli Riserva
Historic vintage, an exceptional vintage of Brunello di Montalcino characterized by excellent polyphenolic concentrations, important alcoholic components assisted by strong acidity and complex and elegant aromatic profiles. Deservedly among the best vintages of Brunello di Montalcino.
“The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Vigna Paganelli is huge, powerful and totally implosive. The seductive allure of the 2007 is nowhere to be found. Instead, the 2006 is built on a serious spine of formidable tannin and dark red/black fruit. Hints of tar, licorice, rose petals and tobacco inform the powerful, virile finish. The 2006 is going to require considerable patience, but it is clearly a jewel of a wine, even at this early stage. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2046.”
