The area around Montalcino produces the most famous wines in Italy. The best of it comes from the part south of the city. Here are the most famous and beautiful wineries and here is also the historic Il Poggione. The high (150-450m) location near the Amiata mountain and the Tyrrhenian sea provides an ideal cooling influence and a great microclimate which ensures refinement and freshness in the wines. The Rosso de Montalcino is also jokingly referred to as the baby Brunello . The Rosso is a must-have for all fans of soft, fruity and intense Italian reds and this seducer has already conquered many hearts and has even been included in the Wine Spectator Top 100! More accessible than big brother Brunello, but with a character and complexity that you can't ignore. The 12-month aging in oak gives the 100% sangiovese grapes structure and makes the wine silky smooth. This Rosso by Tenuta Il Poggione is classic in style, but modern in execution.

The Franchesci family, who has managed the domain for more than 100 years, harvests the grapes in high-altitude (150-450 meters) vineyards, of course by hand. The sangiovese for this seductive Rosso comes from the younger vineyards. This gives a fruity wine, full of juicy cherries, red berries and a hint of orange peel. The 12-month wood aging in French barrels makes it softer but also more serious, with notes of caramel, chocolate and vanilla. More accessible than a Brunello, but with a character and complexity that you can't ignore!
