Natalie's Score: 91/100
Drink this now: its at peak. Seductive nose of wild violets and woodland tart berries. More earth and dust than fruit. Palate is mixed spice and mystery. Good finish but by far my fav is the nose and palate. Pair with truffle-accented dishes.
Brunello Di Montalcino food pairings: pasta in tomato sauce, meat pizza, vegetarian lasagna.

Reviews and Ratings
|Melanie Lloyd - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Aromas of tart cherries and plums, as well as floral notes and aromas of earthy beets, autumn leaves, cedar, and hints of pepper. On the palate, red berries and a touch of black pepper. The tannins are subtle and well incorporated and there's a nice lingering finish.

|Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
Medium garnet - almost tawny coloured. Aromas are intricate, indicating dried fruit , prune, fig, dark chocolate, earth, leather and sweet tobacco. Flavours are compelling and reveal light strawberry, red and dark berry compote, raspberry dark chocolate truffles, coffee and herbal notes of bay leaves and thyme. Medium plus acidity with bursting high, form tannins. Medium minus body and finish with rustic spicy woods structures persisting. Pair with charcuterie, speck, salami and medium bodied cheeses.
|Poggiotondo (2012 is a full-bodied Brunello Di Montalcino from the Tuscany wine region. Great nose of bright cherries and earthy violets with ripe red and dark berries on the palate wrapped up nicely with good acidity, spices and smoky finish. Pair with fricassee rabbit. - Community Wine Reviews|
