2010 Brunello di Montalcino, Il Poggione, Tuscany

With fantastically structured intensity and impressive freshness, this has all the hallmarks of truly great Brunello. Oozing Sangiovese character, it combines the richness and structure of the vintage with purity of dark cherry fruit and hints of herbal complexity. At this price, there is surely room for Il Poggione in every cellar?

2010 Brunello di Montalcino, Il Poggione, Tuscany
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.
