97 Points - Decanter Tasting Panel
Poggio Landi is one jewel in Alejandro Bulgheroni’s crowned portfolio of family vineyards. Since 2013, when the 33ha property was acquired, an impressive transformation programme has been in place. Alberto Antonini, chief winemaker of the group has focused on meeting the expectations of consumers and maintaining unaltered, the unique characteristics of the terroir. Rose petal aromas and spice can be attributed to the 38 months spent in French oak (botte) barrels. BB: Intense, still youthful nose of red cherry and fresh mint amid hints of leather and rose water, unfolding onto a long and lively palate with mineral-tinged raspberry and cherry fruit expanded by layered yet fine tannins. Harmonious, free-flowing and crystal clear. MG: Broad, ripe and juicy with sweet black fruit aromas leading to a big and rounded mouthful of long-lingering, spice-laden fruit. Almost ready. SH: Heady rose-petal aromas partnered with a complex incense-like spice. Beautifully textured, super-smooth and refined in the mouth, with lingering acidity delivering an alluring freshness on the finish.
