Tasting Note

Ruby red colour with garnet highlights. Ample and highly complex flavours at the nose develop then to mineral notes of graphite, fruity tones of red berries and spicy aromas of clove and vanilla. Long and balanced at the palate, smooth and persistent notes bring to the elegant end characterised by present and velvety tannins

Wine Spectator Note

Supple, laced with cherry, strawberry, floral and graphite flavors, this is elegant and harmonious, with a solid base of tannins for support. Still needs time to resolve itself, yet finds a nice balance in the end. Best from 2021 through 2036. 150 cases imported. 95 Points, Bruce Sanderson, June 2018

James Suckling Note

This is tight and very layered with ripe yet fresh fruit, chewy and polished tannins and a long and flavorful finish. Full body and a crisp finish. Needs two or three years to soften. 94 Points – September 2018

Robert Parker Note

With only 3,000 bottles produced, the 2012 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Vigneto Poggio Doria is the top-shelf expression presented by the historic Tenute Silvio Nardi estate. This is a darkly concentrated and elaborate wine that displays some of the extra color and fleshiness that comes courtesy of the warmer growing conditions and dry summer of 2012. The aromas are broad, flat and powerful. More than nuanced complexity, the wine delivers a confident and direct dose of flavor intensity that is lasting and long. 92 Points – Monica Larner, February 2018
