Wine Spectator 93 points – A powerful, dense version, whose leather, tar, plum and underbrush flavors are embedded in the firmly wrought tannins. Will need some time to resolve the structure, yet the core personality is there. Best from 2023 through 2035. 1,550 cases made. -BS  (Jun 30 2018)

 

Vinous 93 points – 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.  (Apr 2018)
