4.5 stars "Overall: well balanced; Excellent wine." Best 2012-
rated: July 2, 2010 , from K&L
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
