  • Score: 90 Vintage 2018 Wine Advocate La Poderina's 2018 Rosso di Montalcino opens to a light ruby color that shines nicely in the glass. The aromas open to wild fruit and tart cherry, but there's a mineral note as well, with crushed stone or pencil shaving. Seeing 10 months in steel vat, this is a lean and tonic Sangiovese that would pair with a simple pasta al pomodoro with extra Parmigiano cheese grated over. Those chalky mineral tones give the wine better sharpness and definition compared to many of its peers. Some 44,000 bottles were rolled out, and you get great value with this bottle.

  • Score: 90 Vintage 2018 Vinous Media I find a remarkably pretty display of fresh strawberry and lifting floral tones, crushed stone, and hints of peppery herbs in La Poderina's 2018 Rosso di Montalcino. The 2018 is soft, motivated by brisk acids with a twang of zesty tart berry fruits and inner violet tones. It isn’t just juicy; the 2018 also has a wonderful twist of citrus, spice, minerals and brisk acids throughout the finish that just begs you to take another sip. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 87 Vintage 2018 Wine Spectator A sleek style, this red offers cherry, earth and tobacco flavors. Approachable, with a little kick of heat on the finish. Drink now. 2,500 cases made, 200 cases imported. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 87 Vintage 2018 Wine Enthusiast This has a subtle nose suggesting dark-skinned fruit, violet and a whiff of moist earth. The linear palate is on the lean side, evoking pomegranate, star anise and sage alongside bright acidity and dusty, drying tannins. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 89 Vintage 2017 James Suckling There’s lots of ripeness here with dried berries, dried red cherries and some herbs and tobacco. Medium body, fine tannins and a drying finish. Drink now. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 87 Vintage 2017 Wine Enthusiast The nose is rather closed but eventually reveals leather, pipe tobacco and botanical herbs. The firm, no-frills palate offers blackberry jam and star anise alongside dusty tannins. Drink soon. KERIN O’KEEFE Shelf Talker Full Page Review
