Brunello di Montalcino Poggio all’Oro Riserva 2015
Balsamic notes of pine, tobacco and Scotch broom gain the upper hand over the strawberry and cherry fruit in this red, at present. Tightly wound, an intense core of fruit persists through the mostly savory finish. Drink now through 2045. 70 cases imported.
