"This is truly a "Micro winery" but this wine is a GIANT STEAL! I find there is a certain sweetness that emanates from the nose. It is the ripeness of the grapes, the wild cherry and spice character, unstoppable, flowing powerfully from the glass, layering flavors across the palate like sedimentary deposits. Warmth, dense richness, lush thickness, a powerful pulsing pumps the ripe plumy character across the palate, pleasing, warming, enriching and filling the palate. The finish is sunny, warming, complete, balanced and lingering with more chocolaty intrigue. Drink now with a couple of hours in a decanter or let it continue to evolve for another 3-8 years, and then age gracefully. (Greg St.Clair, K&L Italian buyer)"

90 points "K&L's notes: 3.5 Stars! Tiny Poggiarellino was last year's introductory success, its forward drinkability and price had everyone jumping out of their shoes. This 2001 shows that last year was no fluke in fact this wine has gone from fun to important. The 2001 lays a powerful, focused center right down the middle of your palate and is rich, fleshy with a chocolaty, ripe cherry flavor filled body. The wine has considerable depth and a texture that makes me think of a Bistecca Fiorentina. Where the 2000 had loads of plump and fun fruit, this vintage shows far more complexity, layers of spice, distinct mineral components and a truly dramatic and long-lasting finish where the spice and mineral go on forever. Capable of aging 15-20 years easily yet balanced and rich enough to excite anyone today! 2,700 bottles made! (Greg St.Clair, K&L Italian buyer)" Best 2009-2020

95 points "A Brunello with so much forest floor, mushroom and dark fruits...Fascinating. It's full body, juicy and savory with a wonderful finish of dried meat, berry and dried mushroom. Drinking beautifully now but will age beautifully. Great value. (12/ 2014)" Best 2015-2022
