Established by Piero palmucci in 1989, Poggio di Sotto has, in a short time, become one Montalcino's cult wines, - the so called 'Burgundy of Brunello.' Biodynamic viticulture, high vine density, extremely low yields and extended cask ageing combine to produce wines that are characteristically light in colour, with complex aromas of red berry fruit, earth, leather and tobacco supported by firm acidity and silky yet substantial tannins.
'Poggio di Sotto doesn't miss a beat with this very special release. This is a glorious expression of the vintage, and the wine has absorbed the golden sunlight of Tuscany, delivering beautifully ripe, round and subtle fruit layers. The 2015 Brunello di Montalcino shows concentration, but not too much, and richness, but not too much. You get the power and the opulence of the vintage presented with the elegance and grace that is the house style at this venerated estate. Poggio di Sotto is one of the benchmarks of Montalcino, and the winery team continues the tradition with this 22,000-bottle release. There's a lot of red fruit energy deep inside that should stir this wine on course as it ages over the next two decades. Drink 2024- 2040.' 96 Points. Monica Larner - The Wine Advocate.
