Tasting Notes

Vinous – 96

(6 g/l total acidity, 3.35 pH, 27.5 g/l dry extract, 14.5% alcohol): Good bright medium red with an amber rim. Deep, refined aromas of red cherry, strawberry jam, licorice and wet underbrush. Supple, suave, creamy and rich, with a suggestion of white chocolate complementing ripe red fruit flavors. Very soft and silky, but also shows well-integrated acidity and very polished tannins. Most impressive today on the long, scented back end, which exudes a delicate but very persistent flavor of candied small red fruits. Aged for 65 months in large oak casks. This wine was made from a very low yield, and a growing season marked by two deep freezes in spring and a very hot September and October. In fact, the 1985 vintage is one of the few hot years in Montalcino that gave truly memorable wines–unlike, for example, 1997 and 2003. [Ian D’Agata, 10/01/2013]

Robert Parker – 93

The 1985 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Poggio al Vento is now fully mature. Tobacco, truffles, black cherries, leather and spices are just some of the aromas and flavors that take shape in the glass. I don’t see much room for the 1985 to improve from here, but it is in a glorious place right now. Stylistically the 1985 is cut from the same cloth as the 1990. The 1985 spent 60 months in cask, a bit longer than the norm at the time, which was around 54 months. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2015. [Antonio Galloni, 31/05/2012]

Anticipated maturity: 2012-2015
