From a great vintage, Poggio Landi’s gulpable, ruby-colored Rosso is a concentrated, cherry-scented way to enjoy young-vine Brunello while your 2017 Brunello wines mature in your cellar. Dusty black cherry, minerals, and almond would make this so enticing with a roast rack of pork studded with garlic and rosemary.
Masses of spicy floral perfume lift from the glass of 2017 Poggio Landi Rosso di Montalcino, complemented by dusty dried cherry, crushed stone and a hint of sage. On the palate, soft textures give way to depths of tart cherry and cranberry fruit, with brisk acids tugging at the senses yet also creating a truly mouth-watering expression. The finish is medium in length and buzzing with energy.
