    Poggio al Granchio is sourced from high elevations of 400-450 meters in the southeast of the region on galestro soils. The 2016 Poggio al Granchio Brunello di Montalcino is aromatically expressive of perfectly ripe cherry, sweet herbs, dried flowers, and stony earth. There is generous purity of fruit on the palate, with mineral-rich earth, and it had the most balanced and harmonious structure in the lineup on this tasting, with present but fine-grained tannin. I love this wine for its darker mineral edge in counterpoint with crunchy and ripe fruit. It is a super-pleasurable wine right out of the gate and will continue to be so over the next 20 or more years. Maturity: 2025-2042. Score - 98. (Audrey Frick, jebdunnuck.com, March 4, 2021)
