Tenute Silvio Nardi Poggio Doria Brunello di Montalcino DOCG, 2016

£112.50

Category: Italy, TOSCANA, Tenute Silvio Nardi, Montalcino, 2016

Brunello Poggio Doria is the wine of sunset, the wine from the West. Aromatic, full bodied, with velvety tannins and a juicy finish. Attractive balsamic and dried-fruit character.

“Compared to the broad shoulders and rich concentration you get in the Vigneto Manachiara, the 2016 Brunello di Montalcino Vigneto Poggio Doria is slightly more ethereal and finessed in character. Even its color is a shade more ruby (by the slightest margin), and the aromas veer toward the red fruit side of the spectrum, instead of the black fruit. The bouquet yields quite a bit of varietal purity with raspberry, wild cherry and a lingering rosemary essence. Dark mineral and campfire ash also appear. The tannins are a bit drier and tighter here, compared to the relatively softer and richer texture seen in the Manachiara, and my recommendation is to hold this wine a bit longer in your cellar.” 96+ Points, Wine Advocate, Monica Larner, November 2020

In 1950 Silvio Nardi bought Casale del Bosco situated west of Montalcino, he then purchased Manachiara to the east in 1962 and Bibbiano Castle. In 1967, the Nardi Estate was among the founders of the important Brunello Consortium. Since 1990 Silvio’s youngest daughter Emilia, has been at the helm, ably assisted by her brothers. Tenute Silvio Nardi aim to produce a modern style Brunello, delicate whilst maintaining the traditional Brunello style. These wines remain full-bodied, are matured 5 years in cellar and may be drunk for years to come.

James Suckling

Impressive black cherries with black mushrooms, mahogany and black earth. Full-bodied with chewy yet fine-textured tannins. It goes on and on in the palate. Muscular, yet very toned and fine-grained. Hints of steel at the end. A beauty. Try after 2023. 94 Points, James Suckling, October 2020

Wine Spectator

An impressive red, this adds a light touch of new oak to its cherry, strawberry, iron, tobacco and pine flavors. Vanilla and resinous accents linger, along with dusty tannins that should meld with the fruit in a year or two. Best from 2023 through 2038. 165 cases made; 50 cases imported. 93 Points, Bruce Sanderson, Sept 2021

Food Pairing

Pair with roasted lamb, steak and mature cheeses
