The 2016 Brunello di Montalcino Poggio Cerrino dazzles with a fruit-forward display of ripe cherries, blueberry and plum, complemented by confectioners' spice and hints of sweet tobacco. It's soft in texture but with a contrasting mix of tart berry fruits and zesty acids, which balance while also adding to the wine's vibrant persona. Hints of grippy tannin linger under an air of inner florals. The bouquet of Poggio Cerrino leads you to believe this will be an extroverted expression of the vintage; it instead comes into focus nicely and is an excellent option for earlier drinking while waiting for the bigger wines of the year to mature.
Dark-skinned fruit, tilled soil and cooking spice lead the nose. The straightforward palate offers raspberry jam, clove and sage alongside solid tannins. Drink through 2026.
