Poggio al Granchio

Brunello di Montalcino
Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita

An intense ruby-red colour and purplish glints. The nose is an explosion of fresh fruit reminiscent of cherries in liqueur, redcurrants, blackberries and myrtle. Well-paced in the mouth, with silky tannins and sapid mineral nish.
