IL Poggione 2011 Brunello Di Montalcino

IL Poggione 2011 Brunello Di Montalcino (DOCG),  $67.99-$79.99, 94 points, poured a deep maroon throughout till the clear wine ring.
Roses, sandalwood, red cherries, sea breezes, and sage on the nose were remarkable.
Medium-bodied with mouth-watering acids and firm grainy tannins grabbed hold of aroma reflective flavors with sweet bourbon notes and carried them deep into a satisfyingly long finish of warm spices, orange-pekoe tea, mint, and a well-integrated 14.5% alcohol.
Paired perfectly with my spice-rubbed rare rib eye steak.
