Deep red. Enticing floral notes complicate the nose of ripe red cherry, smoked sausage, bay leaf and a nuance of raw red meat. Then clean, fresh and long, showing a savory, almost metallic quality on the long, mountingly austere finish. This very serious Brunello strikes me as being less perfumed and sweet than past vintages of Poggio all’Oro, but it will likely develop very well and last.
