Aromas of botanical herbs, blue flowers, underbrush and wild raspberry waft out of the glass. Elegantly structured, the linear, medium-bodied palate features crushed mint, ripe Marasca cherry, orange zest and star anise alongside a backbone of firm, refined tannins. Drink 2027-2032.

Masses of ashen earth, smoke, dusty cherry and roses with nuances of clove lift up from the 2017 Brunello di Montalcino. This is silky and pliant upon entry, presenting a rich display of intense red and hints of black fruits laced with chalky minerals that drenches the palate. Penetrating acidity and grippy tannins create a burst of cheek-puckering tension, clenching down hard with youthful poise, as notes of licorice and hard red candies linger through the structured, medium-length finale. That said, it needs time to unwind from its youthful state. Production was down 15-20% at Il Poggione in 2017 due to severe selection of bunches, and all of the fruit that would have been reserved for the Riserva Vigna Paganelli was added to the Brunello instead.
