Cellar/Tasting Notes
The 1997 Riserva presents with inviting yet complex aroms which are almost balsamicin nature. The varietal strength of the Brunello expresses itself beautifully, framed by the noble oak. On the palate, there is a unique combination of power and elegance. The structure incorprates delicate tannins, with a polished fullness that doesn’t overwhelm. It leaves the palate impressed by a myriad of small and pleasant sensations.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (RP): 92
"The 1997 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Poggio al Vento impresses for its symmetrical, sensual personality. Powerful yet seamless tannins support layers of dark, sensual fruit in this textured, round Brunello. The wine’s richness and depth are pure pleasure. There is more than enough structure for the 1997 to continue to drink well for a number of years. In 1997 spring frost reduced yields dramatically. The harvest took place on September 22, quite early at the time, but on the late side by today’s standards."
Wine Spectator (WS): 94
"Medium ruby, with a garnet edge. Aromas of dried flowers, raspberry and cherry. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins and focused fruit. Racy style. Lots of fruit, yet closed and reserved still. Needs more time.--1997 Italian blind retrospective."
