Natalie's Score: 94/100

From the Tuscany wine region, Poggio Il Castellare 2016 Brunello Di Montalcino is a rich, full-bodied Brunello with dark cherry, dark berry, mint, vanilla and toasty oak spice flavours vibrant on the palate. Tannins are dusty. Good now, better in 2024 or cellar to 2035.

Brunello di Montalcino food pairings: roast duck, meat-lover's pizza, vegetarian lasagne.
