94 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - July/August 2012

Good full red.  Very pure but subdued aromas of raspberry, rose petal and spices, along with a suggestion of chocolate.  Then almost surprisingly plush and sensual on the palate, and distinctly sweeter than the 2007 classico, showing a flavor of cherry liqueur.  Extract-rich and dense in texture without betraying any heaviness.  Finishes with excellent spine and thrust and good medicinal reserve.  This will need time to absorb its serious dusting of tannins.

Fell in love with Poggio Antico with the 85 vintage, Her wines are beautiful and elegant. If A wine can be sexy this one is it! Drinks wonderfully now. Will only get better with age.
