Antonio Galloni

AG 89
"The 2018 Rosso di Montalcino Poggio Cerrino is smoky at first, gaining notes of ripe cherry, brown spice and flowery undergrowth over time. It’s soft and textural, supported on a feminine frame with zesty acids that make the cheeks pucker. Tart red and black berries saturate through the tension-filled finale, with a pleasant hint of cherry pits and licorice. This is very pretty yet a bit intense on the palate, which I don’t see settling down over time. That said, the Poggio Cerrino will excel most at the dinner table over the next two to three years."
