WA 93+ WS 91 JS 91 Pts - According to Wine Advocate - The 2008 Brunello di Montalcino is one of the best wines of the year. A relatively big, voluptuous wine for the year, the 2008 impresses for its inner perfume, silky tannins and terrific overall balance. Hints of leather, tobacco and dried herbs add complexity. The 2008 isn’t immediately showy, as so many recent vintages have been; instead, it is a wine built for the cellar. Still, with time in the glass, the wine’s exquisite perfume begins to emerge. In 2008, Il Poggione did not bottle a Riserva, all the juice went into the regular bottling. Brunello di Montalcino is highly vintage dependent in the market, especially in the United States. Most people won’t look at this wine because of the vintage. Let others make that mistake. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2033.
According to Wine Spectator - The bright cherry and strawberry notes are enhanced by iron and earth accents in this intense, tightly wound and linear red, boasting a firm structure and a lingering aftertaste of fruit and mineral. Best from 2017 through 2033.
According to James Suckling - This is very harmonious and pretty and underlines the finesse of the vintage. Full body, with ultra-fine tannins and a delicious finish. Balanced and delicious. Enjoy before the 2006 or 2007 from here. Drink now or hold. Rated 90+
