2001 Poggio Antico Brunello di Montalcino Altero

Dark red color with fading at the edges. Plums and cherries on the nose. Edgy on the palate, plums, bit of tobacco, cedar. Some pepper on the mid-palate. Nicely resolved tannins, good acidity and balance. Finishes long with red fruits. Brighter with food. Well-made but just not my style. "B+"
