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.

Wine AdvocateThe La Poderina 2012 Brunello di Montalcino does a terrific job and never strays far from the Sangiovese path. This is a light weight and buoyant wine with vibrant berry tones, dark fruit, plum, spice, tobacco and pressed violets. The bouquet is authentic and shapely without being too bold or overly intense. The effect is seamless, in fact with a long and silky line of aromatic descriptors that reach a nice place of unity and harmony. The mouthfeel shows similar integration with some refreshing brightness at the back. The finish is a tad short.

Wine EnthusiastSubtle dark-skinned berry, brown spice, leather and truffle scents gently lift out of the glass. The palate is polished and full-bodied palate, with licorice, clove and white pepper notes underscoring a juicy black cherry core. Firm, refined tannins provide structure. Drink 2019-2027.

Wine SpectatorStarts out slightly cheesy in aroma, with flavors of cherry, strawberry, licorice, leather and spice. Nicely balanced and open, but lacks the length and energy of the best 2012s. Best from 2019 through 2029. 4,916 cases made.
