Reviews of purchase Brunello di Montalcino Riserva DOCG, Poggio Antico 2004
Wine intense, deep ruby red color with a slight purple hue.
Rich, beautifully structured wine with excellent balance, expression, but silky tannins and a delicious berry resistant finish.
The wine has a charming complex aroma with notes of ripe red berries, cassis, violets, ripe cherries, leather and licorice nuances.
The wine goes well with hot, stews and dishes prepared on the grill. Particularly well suited to this wine "haute cuisine".
