Wine Advocate reports: 'Consulting oenologist Riccardo Cotarella is now the man in charge at Fattoria del Cerro and all of the SAI Agricola properties, which includes La Poderina in Montalcino. The quality of the fruit of the entry-level wines suggests the raw materials are first-rate.'

VinousThe 2013 Vino Nobile di Montepulciano offers good intensity while retaining a mid-weight sense of structure. Sweet black cherry, plum, tobacco, licorice and rose petal notes are pushed forward. Some of the wine’s initial intensity tapers off on the finish, but that is a relatively small critique for a wine that delivers so much pleasure. Hints of smoke, spice, dried herbs and leather add attractive savory undertones to the dark, muscular finish. I would give the 2013 6-12 months to soften a bit further.
