2006 Brunello di Montalcino, Il Poggione, Tuscany

"The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino is another superb Brunello from Il Poggione. The ripeness of the vintage meets a classic sense of structure as this bold, full-bodied wine takes shape in the glass. The 2006 doesn’t have the elegance or finesse of the 2004, instead it offers a decidedly more virile, masculine expression of Sangiovese. Dark cherries, tobacco, smoke and underbrush wrap around a wall of tannin as the finish builds to a majestic close. Il Poggione’s Brunello remains one of the best values in fine, cellar-worthy wine. 94 Points" - Robert Parker's WIne Advocate.

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.
