La Poderina Brunello di Montalcino 2010

Out of stock

We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.

La Poderina is located just south of Montalcino in the Castelnuovo dell’Abate township, which is renowned for rich, elegant and balanced fruit. It is the area where power players Ciacci Piccolomini and Uccelliera are also located, and where we visited in 2009. La Poderina is owned by the same quality-driven folks who own Fattoria del Cerro. At La Poderina, 25 acres are dedicated to the cultivation of the Sangiovese Grosso for the production of this Brunello and 11 acres are designated for Rosso di Montalcino. Their vineyards have yields well below the 32 ql/acre dictated by the appellation’s regulations. The winemaker is the renowned Riccardo Cotarella who ages the wines in both French barriques and larger botti, giving the final wines restrained oak notes that still showcase unique characteristics of this region’s Sangiovese.

James SucklingA gorgeous red with dark-berry, blueberry and violet character. Full body, fine, integrated tannins with dark chocolate, and a delicious finish. Lots of everything here. Very balanced. Formally La Poderina. Drink in 2015.

VinousLa Poderina's 2010 Brunello di Montalcino is a classic wine from this southern edge of Montalcino. Dark red cherry, plum, smoke, spice and leather notes open up in a rich, resonant wine bursting at the seams with personality. The 2010 needs a few years to soften, but it is already striking and absolutely delicious.

Wine SpectatorPacked with ripe cherry, plum and blackberry flavors, this red is rich and harmonious, its structure embedded in the texture, with spice and tobacco notes adding depth. Dense and long, with a lingering mineral element. Best from 2018 through 2032. 4,200 cases made.
