2006 La Poderina Brunello di Montalcino

2006 La Poderina Brunello di Montalcino. Disappointing #wine for sure. I wasn’t expecting a fruit bomb, but this seems surprisingly thin and hollow for a Brunello from this good a producer in a terrific vintage like 2006. Slightly bitter cherry and earth on the palate with no real structure underneath from what I can tell. No wonder this was relatively inexpensive at around $30…I think it may be time to drink up on these…I have 2 more.

I am not a professional wine taster, nor do I have any professional training in the wine trade. I am a wine enthusiast who has spent countless hours tasting wines of many different styles. My palate is not aligned with a single wine critic, and I call all wines "as I taste them". My site is a source of tasting notes and wine recommendations as well as warnings without conflict of interest. You'll just have to figure out how your palate aligns with mine. My palate generally tends to veer towards Old-World wines that put a premium on terroir and lovely balance and finesse, rather than raw power...please keep that in mind as you read my notes.
