"Vigna Paganelli" Brunello di Montalcino Riserva DOCG


Il Poggione


2015 "Vigna Paganelli" Brunello di Montalcino DOCG, Il Poggione

Der Oenologe und Gutsverwalter Fabrizio Bindocci hat während der vielen Jahre seines Wirkens den Brunello Riserva stets aus demselben Rebberg, einer der ältesten der Azienda Il Poggione gewonnen. Es ist die Vigna Paganelli, die schon in den frühen sechziger Jahren bepflanzt wurde. Immer wenn ein gutes bis sehr gutes Jahr war, wurde dort eine Selektion der besten Trauben gewonnen, die nach der Kelterung und drei bis vier Jahren Ausbau im Holzfass eine hervorragende Riserva ergaben. Es ist ein Wein, der wenn immer er von Il Poggione angeboten wird, mit höchsten Auszeichnungen dekoriert wird und doch preislich nicht abgehoben ist. Erst seit dem Jahrgang 2003 trägt er auch den Namen des Rebberges: Vigna Paganelli.

Robert Parker's ine Advocate:
This single-vineyard Riserva delivers a generous, abundant and determined personality. This is Brunello with a capital B. The 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Vigna Paganelli benefits from a warm and sun-soaked microclimate that is shielded from cold winter winds. You can taste the good health of the grapes thanks to those very direct aromas of black cherry, plum, tar, campfire ash and chalky mineral. The Paganelli vineyard is 12 hectares in size, with vines planted in 1964. The last time this wine was made was in 2012. Fruit from those old vines shape complex aromas, elegant tannins and bright freshness. Despite that handsome DNA, this is another new release from Il Poggione that will require more cellar age. I'd suggest drinking a bottle from this 40,000-bottle release after the 10-year mark.

James Suckling:
Blackberry and blueberry aromas with black truffle and lavender that follow through to a full body with a very fine, compact palate of ripe, refined tannins. It is a lovely wine to taste now, but will be even better in a year or two. Excellence here.

The 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Vigna Paganelli Riserva from Il Poggione keeps you at the edge of your seat, with a gorgeous display of herbal-tinged black cherry, sweet white smoke, cedar and cloves. The textures are silky and polished, as this coasts effortlessly across a core of salty minerals and bright acids, taking on a decidedly savory, umami note. There’s simply so much going on and so much to like about the 2015 Riserva, as balsamic spice, hints of wild herbs and tobacco form up toward the close over a coating of classically fine tannin. Tasting the 2015 Riserva, you could easily forget that it hails from a ripe vintage. This needs five or more years to unwind and should then excel for well over a decade in our cellars. Tasted twice and over the course of two days.
