Il Poggione

While in wine bigger rarely means better, Il Poggione bucks the trend. They’re one of Montalcino’s biggest names, with production to match. But they’re also the region’s most consistent performer. The estate has been in the hands of the Franceschi family for five generations. However, it’s the winemakers who established the estate’s internationally acclaimed reputation: Pierluigi Talenti from 1958 until his death in 1999, ably followed by Fabrizio Bindocci, and now Fabrizio’s son Alessandro.

More About Il Poggione

While in wine bigger rarely means better, Il Poggione bucks the trend. They’re one of Montalcino’s biggest names, with production to match. But they’re also the region’s most consistent performer.

The estate has been in the hands of the Franceschi family for five generations. But it’s the winemakers here now who established the estate’s internationally acclaimed reputation: Pierluigi Talenti from 1958 until his death in 1999, ably followed by Fabrizio Bindocci, who’d worked under him since 1976, and now Fabrizio’s son Alessandro.

This continuity means that Il Poggione has remained a high achiever. But it doesn’t mean they’re averse to progression. The team even has a smartphone application that informs them of any concerns with the tanks in the winery. And their commitment to biodiversity on the vast property is second to none, where they have set aside swathes of land for wildlife.
