Food Pairings for Il Poggione Brunello di Montalcino
Editorial Reviews for Il Poggione Brunello di Montalcino
This is light and fresh on the nose with layered notes of earth, flowers, some old wood and soft red fruits that unfold slowly. In the mouth, this is rich and powerful with a slightly chunky feel today. It’s made for the cellar and all that dry extract and dense fruit just needs some time to emerge. 93pts
The nose showed ripe strawberry, cedar and minerals with a hint of caramel. On the palate, it was soft and mouth-filling with dark red fruits, baker’s chocolate and a fine structure that was nearly masked by its ripe, focused fruit. The finish was long, long, long.
I found this wine very disappointing - I was expecting a Brunello and got, I am not sure what but not a Brunello signature at all - a bit harsh with a bit of an unpleasant after taste - not worth the price. Heard wonderful things. Possibly a bad bottle.

Color, Ruby red tending to garnet. Aroma, Very intense, elegant, persistent nose with red fruit notes. Taste, Warm, balanced flavor with velvet-smooth tannins. Long-lasting aroma.
The 2007 Brunello di Montalcino is flat-out sexy. Layers of dark red fruit caress the palate in this round, voluptuous Brunello. Sweet roses, violets, mint and spices appear later, adding further complexity. The 2007 boasts striking inner perfume, ra... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate. A Sangiovese Grosso wine from Tuscany in Italy. 2007 Il Poggione Brunello di Montalcino 1500ml
This finessed, regal Brunello flows onto the palate with seamless layers of perfumed fruit framed by silky, finessed tannins.
Medium red. Reticent nose hints at red berries, marzipan and nutty oak. Fine-grained, fleshy and highly concentrated, without any undue impression of weight. Lovely sappy sweetness accentuates the wine's inner-mouth perfume.
In 1890 the Franceschi family purchased the Il Poggione estate in Sant Angelo in Colle in the commune of Montalcino in the province of Siena. The Estate covers 3,460 acres, of which 92 acres are planted to Brunello.
It's here! The 2006 Il Poggione Brunello has been awaited with much anticipation. After the rave review the 2004 received from the Wine Advocate, that wine disappeared fast. Now with reports of the 2006's rivaling or even outdoing the 2004's, demand has steadily grown. Monica Larner in Wine Enthusiast Magazine scored this Tuscan treat 93 points saying "Thanks to 36 months of careful oak aging, this hearty Brunello opens with a dark, inky color, deep extraction and intense aromas of black cherry, chocolate, rum cake, cinnamon, mesquite and wet stone." We recommend you grab all you can now, before the other raves start pouring in. Limited!
Intensives Rubinrot mit dunklen Reflexen; die Nase ist vornehm, intensiv, ausladend und tiefgründig, mit Noten von schwarzen Kirschen und Zwetschgen – sie kündigt einen grossen Wein an. Die Geruchsempfindungen werden im Gaumen bestätigt: ausladend, mächtig, dicht, elegant und strukturiert von kraftvollen, feinen Tanninen. Das Finale ist lang anhaltend und höchst elegant. Ein Brunello di Montalcino von exzellenter Klasse; zweifellos einer der Weine mit dem besten Preis-Qualitätsverhältnis in der Appellation
