“The 2013 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Poggio Abate (with only 6,600 heavy glass bottles released) takes an extra minute or two to open in the glass. Give it time to take on air and usher forth its pretty aromas.

The wine is built like a brick wall thanks to its construction based on many smaller but ” Monica Larner
