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 2014 Brunello di Montalcino is a wine that stays in its lane. It offers pretty intensity but it never goes overboard. In the mouth, it shows silky, long texture but it never feels overdone or too powerful. I could say the same thing of many Brunellos from this cool and rainy vintage that produced understated wines. Bold cherry and cassis segue to spice, leather and lightly toasted rosemary sprig. There are pretty floral notes on the close with rose and lavender bud. Some 65,000 bottles were produced. Drink Date: 2020-2030.

Wine EnthusiastThis opens with subtle aromas of mocha, dark-skinned fruit and baking spice. The straightforward palate offers juicy cherry, licorice and a touch of tobacco alongside rounded tannins.

Wine SpectatorThis linear red offers flavors of cherry pie sprinkled with cinnamon and juniper notes. Solidly built and well-proportioned, ending with accents of medicinal herbs. Best from 2021 through 2032. 5,416 cases made, 900 cases imported.
