2008 Brunello di Montalcino Poggio di Sotto - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant


Piero Palmucci’s project at Poggio di Sotto was nothing short of remarkable. He proved definitively, in the relatively short span of twenty years, that Montalcino is capable of making some of the greatest red wines in the world. He wasn’t the first, but for me his work most significantly highlighted the importance of, and the difference between, the subzones of Montalcino. The steep, calcareous marl slopes of Castelnuovo dell’Abate can produce wines with the finesse and longevity of great Burgundy, and no vintage more excitingly showcases this possibility over the last ten years than this one. No cellar is complete without it.—Dixon Brooke
