Why do we have to choose between beauty and the beast?
Why can’t we have both?
Well now you can!
Given the run a few weeks ago on Cortonesi’s 2015 Riserva, we thought it prudent to dial up another stellar Sangiovese offer for you from the same amazing producer from an even better vintage!
Enter the 2016 Cortonesi Poggiarelli Brunello di Montalcino!
The vintage that can’t keep the critics silent continues to deliver wines with serious staying power, and Cortonesi’s Poggiarelli is at the top of the class! Vines planted in the 1970s and 1980s showcase the depth and dimension this estate delivers, with a concentration showcasing pure palate pedigree and polish for days.
Big and bombastic aromas of spiced cherries, orange peel, saddle leather, gravel, wet earth and tobacco lead into an opulent palate full of force that overwhelms with senses with the greatest of ease. Waves of blackberry pie, cherry preserves, minerals, truffles and sandalwood prove to be a perfect accompaniment to any assortment of meats and cheeses, and the spicy backbone makes this wine even more intoxicating from the first sip to the last.
And we've got it for an absolute steal! Over 40% off and the lowest price in the galaxy!
With so many scores thrown at its feet, this is basically praying at the Sangiovese altar for a pittance, and there should be nothing stopping you from confessing your love for this Montalcino magician. We still can’t believe we managed to extract some out of the loving and tender grasp of the cellar, but we know what you like and we’re willing to do anything for you.
Make this Brunello part of your daily ritual and look to the Tuscan heavens for thanks.
