Galloni reported of the wines early, telling us the 2012 Brunelli were graced with a "lovely sense of radiance and forward suppleness to their fruit." Poderina is one such 2012, from vines in the southeastern sector of the zone, where Brunello reaches that superior quality in so many vintages. It's the same zone as the "original" Brunello, Biondi Santi, the folks who started it all, and Poderina is gorgeous in 2012. If you haven't discovered Marco Mantengoli's magic – La Rasina is on a roll – this may be your last call! This young man truly has the Midas touch. Pristine hilltop estate, pristine wines. This group below is the group you want, a perfect way to build that perfect set of mixed cases.


A layered and beautiful red with plum, chocolate and hazelnut character. Medium to full body, silky tannins and fresh and intense finish. Solid wine for the vintage. Drink or hold.

San Filippo's 2012 Brunello di Montalcino shows a dark garnet and slightly evolved appearance with amber highlights at the rim. Aromas of dark cherry, prune and dried plum lift from the bouquet revealing a juicy core of dark fruit. In the mouth, the wine shows succulence and softness. These characteristics are in line with the hot vintage that produced dark and plump fruit with immediate appeal. What makes this wine interesting are the extra layers of savory spice it provides on the finish. The results are sophisticated and noble, with cigar ash, mahogany and cedar wood.
