Back up the truck!

At this price, you must load up on this Brunello. While supplies last, we are offering this Tuscan treat at a staggering sub-$30 for the next 48 hours.

We cannot stress enough that the 2013 Poggiotondo Brunello di Montalcino should be your go-to Italian red. At this price, it can be your house pour.

This is the second consecutive vintage that we have featured this modestly priced red that overdelivers. We are not suggesting this wine is going to best your Valdicava or Uccelliera Brunellos. But at this price, you may want to reach for this Sangiovese stunner over most Chiantis.

Fresh tobacco, clove, balsamic, berries, cherry, orange rind, spice, and well structured tannins. We cannot believe the value in this beauty.

You should certainly enjoy it now, however, feel free to stash some away and enjoy it over the next five years.

And, with a challenging upcoming 2014 vintage in Tuscany in which few producers will make a Brunello, there is going to be a Brunello drought in six months.... so, load up now!

$38.95 per bottle / $467.40 per case

Summary


THE MERCHANT'S MARK

93 + / 100

What a steal! Few if any Brunellos are this impressive at this modest price point. Fresh tobacco, clove, balsamic, berries, cherry, orange rind, spice, and well structured tannins. At this price you need to load up!

JAMES SUCKLING

93 /100

"Layered and rich with blueberry, black cherry and mushroom character. Full body, polished tannins and a flavorful finish. Bright and structured."
