Grape: Sangiovese 100%
Made in only the very best years from an exceptional single vineyard, the Riserva Paganelli is always a simply stunning wine. In 2010 it is clearly very special and for Larner, “among my favorite Brunellos of the year”.
In a vintage as immense from Brunello di Montalcino as 2010, this is huge praise making it instantly unmissable.
Thanks to their consistent brilliance, Il Poggione is one of our “go-to” producers in Brunello. Larner echoes our thoughts and given that she sees them as reaching “new heights in excellence” in 2010, this flagship Riserva is a wine to stockpile while available and enjoy over the coming years.
