The area around Montalcino produces some of Italy's most famous wines. The best of these comes from the part south of the city. This is where the most famous and beautiful wineries are located, as well as the historic Il Poggione. The high (150-450m) location near the Amiataberg and the Tyrrhenian Sea provides an ideal cooling effect and a great microclimate which ensures refinement and freshness in the wines.

This is the absolute top wine of the Tenuta Il Poggione domain. The grapes for this Brunello come from the very best vineyards of Tenuta Il Poggione from vines that are 40 years old. Il Poggione only makes the Brunello Riserva in the great vintages.

The Franchesci family that has run the domain for more than 100 years harvests the grapes in high altitude (150-450 meters) vineyards, of course by hand. After another careful selection of the grapes on the selection tables, the temperature-controlled fermentation takes place on stainless steel with natural yeasts, then aging for 4 years in large French wooden barrels and another year in bottle. Little frills and let nature do its job (but that precise control). The great year 2015 gave generous open wines and at Poggione they know how to combine that with uplifting fresh acids. You smell the Tuscan farmlands with sage and thyme, scents of pine and pine, dried cherries, as if you feel the sultry heat and smell the dry ground. This powerful wine is reminiscent in the nose of black cherries, blackberries and almonds and Mediterranean herbs. What stands out most, however, is the wine's rich texture on the palate. This wealth is fueled by the warmth of the vintage, but also by the beautiful oak integration. The Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Vigna Paganelli is a warm, inviting and velvety wine that will only improve with the years.
