2011 Brunello di Montalcino, Il Poggione, Tuscany

An open, enchanting nose leads onto a ripe, pure, palate of rich red fruit, floral notes and a little spice complexity. The tannins are welcoming and rounded, giving a velvety, alluring texture alongside real grip, whilst the altitude of Poggione’s vineyards have ensured that there is no lack of freshness despite the heat of the vintage. An absolutely delicious Brunello di Montalcino.

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.
