This is one of the absolute top wines from Montalcino from the Tenuta Il Poggione domain. The grapes for this Brunello come from the very best vineyards of Tenuta Il Poggione from vines that are 25 - 40 years old. Il Poggione only makes its Brunello in the great vintages.

The Sangiovese Grosso grapes come from the oldest vineyards. The vineyards are located at an altitude of between 150 and 450 meters. The grapes are picked by hand. After picking, the grapes are gently pressed. The fermentation process takes place in large steel barrels at a controlled temperature of 25/28 ° C. The brunello from Il Poggione undergoes maturation in French oak barrels of 30 and 50 hl for a period of 36 months. The wine then matures in the bottle for at least 12 months. The Brunello di Montalcino is a striking wine that shows the purity of Sangiovese. Neither of these elements dominates the other. A highlight that you can enjoy for another 20 years.

In the glass, the Il Poggione has a ruby red color with intense scents in the nose with lots of red ripe fruit cherries, herbs, licorice, smoked meat, roses and grilled meat in the nose. In the mouth, the Brunello has a tight and clear mouthfeel with fruit intensity, full, powerful, complex, velvety soft and with a long lasting aftertaste. Decanting in his younger years.
