"La Poderina’s 2008 Brunello di Montalcino is one of the most delicious wines of the vintage. Freshly cut roses, red berries, cloves and mint are all woven together in a fabric of unusual class. Layers of fruit continue to develop, leading to a rich, creamy finish that is striking in its beauty. A relatively big, fruit-driven wine, the 2008 is all about balance. In this style, it is easily one of the very finest wines made in Montalcino. I have to say, it is also one of the most joyous, exuberant wines I tasted during my week in Montalcino. The 2008 was aged 60% in cask and 40% in barrel for 12 months, followed by another 12 months all in cask. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2023.

La Poderina is one of my favorite Montalcino properties. It’s great to see the estate back on track after what seemed like a few uneven vintages. All of these new releases are highly recommended. As always, the house style is exuberant and flashy, yet the wines boast impeccable balance."~A.G.

"La Poderina is a beautiful, well-managed estate that playfully straddles both a traditional and modern approach to Brunello. Thick black fruit aromas and tangy spice give the wine a soft and opulent first impression. But the firm tannins and bright acidity remind you of its deep Tuscan roots."~M.L.

James Suckling 93
"Blueberries with hints of hazelnut on the nose. Full body, with well-integrated tannins and citrus acidity. This is a lively and pretty wine in a style that I like. Savory too."~J.S.

Wine Spectator 90
"Fresh and lively, with a rich texture, showing cherry, plum and spice aromas and flavors. The tannins are present but not intrusive, with a mouthwatering, minerally finish. Best from 2016 through 2029. 4,167 cases made."~B.S.
