2012 Brunello di Montalcino, Il Poggione, Tuscany

While in wine bigger rarely means better, Il Poggione bucks the trend. They're one of Montalcino's biggest names, but they're also the region's most consistent performer. The 2012 is a dark, concentrated Brunello with serious ageing potential, owing to the 5-star quality evaluation of the 2012 vintage.

2012 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.
