90 Points | International Wine Cellar , June 2014
Bright red. Aromas of ripe red cherry, aromatic herbs and licorice. At once fat and juicy, with soft, ripe red cherry, strawberry jam and mocha flavors dominating. Thick, broad and full, with harmonious acidity giving the wine shape and providing necessary lift. Finishes long and a little oaky, with plenty of easy sweetness, soft tannins and a note of balsamic chocolate. This 2009 from Il Poggione strikes me as bigger and richer than usual for this wine, and is very emblematic of the Brunellos made in the southwestern sector of the Montalcino hill in 2009.
