Wine Enthusiast Review
Rated 94
Forest floor, grilled herb and pipe-tobacco aromas lead the way on this firmly structured wine. The full-bodied palate offers dried cherry, steeped prune, orange zest and licorice set against tightly knit close-grained tannins. Drink 2022-2032.

Wine Advocate Review
Rated 93
This wine is only produced in select vintages. The 2012 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Poggio All'Oro is an exuberant and robustly embellished wine that gives ample airtime to its various constituents. The fruit, the spice, the structure and the freshness are all played up and ultimately find seamless integration to become one big happy whole. The bouquet is intricate and exciting, but I found the mouthfeel to be heavier and more astringent than I would have hoped. There's loads of volume and power here, and the wine's texture is very rich at this young stage. Give it a few more years to develop and soften. Out of the gate, I preferred the Riserva Poggio alle Mura, but that opinion could well shift as this wine gets the upper leg following prolonged aging. Drink 2022-2035.

Wine Spectator Review
Rated 93
A powerful, dense version, whose leather, tar, plum and underbrush flavors are embedded in the firmly wrought tannins. Will need some time to resolve the structure, yet the core personality is there. Best from 2023 through 2035.

Wine Tasting Notes
Deep ruby red, tending toward garnet. The nose offers black fruit and spice, with hints of tobacco, violet, and chocolate. The palateis full-bodied with a velvety mouthfeel and well structured with supple tannins and good acidity. Plum and cherry flavors give way to a long finish.

100% Sangiovese

Alcohol 13.5%
