James Suckling 92 points
"A decadent edge to the ripe and generous red, with plenty of plum character. Full body with round and velvety tannins and a juicy finish."
"Brunello di Montalcino has never had two consecutive great vintages – but it did in 2007 and 2006, and now they are both on the market. The question is, which is better?...I think the 2007 Brunellos are slightly more drinkable than the 2006s at this stage because of their juicer and slightly riper fruit character"
Wine Enthusiast 95 point Vintage Review
"It’s been decided: The 2007 vintage of Brunello di Montalcino is a lovely expression of variety and territory—a true celebration of this austere yet sophisticated red wine from southern Tuscany. Wine Enthusiast Magazine was among the first to blind taste through the new vintage and found it to be indeed one of the most exciting vintages since the start of the millennium."
Traditional wines produced with modern technologies: this is the philosophy of Villa Poggio Salvi. Our wines are characterised by modern taste suited for the international qualified consumer. This area of the Montalcino county is well-known for its Brunello, fine structured and with a strong body, that offers its best in the first years after breaking in the market. Villa Poggio Salvi is a winery company with a modern structure aimed to the future.
The special location of the Villa Poggio Salvi estate enables the production of an exceptional, very elegant Brunello, from Sangiovese grapes picked by hand with great care. A short path lies between the vineyards and the wine-making cellar, hindering an undesired fermentation start or eventual transport damages to the grape-stones. Its main characteristics, in particular the distinctively intense fragrance, the prompt and harmonious roundness of tannins, and the long aftertaste, are the result of the noteworthy microclimatic position of the originating vineyards.
