Tasting Notes

Through precise infrared sensing and dynamic micro-parcelling, seven unique Brunello vineyards emerged. Each harvest season, new measurements refine grape selection, optimizing the individuality of each vineyard. Introducing 'Poggio Molino Al Vento Riserva 2015': a rich tapestry of dark ruby hues. Let the scents of candied fruits enthrall you, with whispers of prune, sage, and a hint of peppermint capturing the soul of Tuscany. Savor the subtle embrace of well-integrated wood, leading to a lasting finish. Dive into a bottle where fruitiness meets herbal sophistication.

James Suckling

Lovely aromas of crushed blackberries, mushrooms, wet stones and cardamom. A light, gamey note, too. Full-to medium-bodied with intense, juicy fruit flavors that vie with still firm, fine tannins. The finish is long, intense and savory, leaving a salty aftertaste. From organically grown grapes. Interesting to taste now, but better to drink after 2022.

Robert Parker

This is a powerful, full-bodied wine for sure, but ultimately it shows balance. Compared to Loacker's other Riserva, the Anemone al Sole, this wine offers a degree more intensity, more ripeness for sure, and more pronounced tannins. This is the bigger, more structured and ultimately more cellar-worthy of the two. The wine's name Molino al Vento (windmill) pays homage to the winds that blow over this highest altitude vineyard.
