Il Poggione Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2003

Winemaker's Notes:

This historic property located in Sant'Angelo in Colle traces its roots back to the late 1800s. Today the wines are made by Fabrizio Bindocci who cut his teeth working alongside Piero Talenti one of the most famous figures in the world of Montalcino oenology. Il Poggione's Brunello di Montalcino opens with a very distinctive nose redolent of scorched earth tobacco and cherries initially showing a wilder side of Sangiovese in its hints of gaminess. It is full-bodied and structured on the palate where it offers plenty of fruit with considerable length as well as big potent tannins. This backward hulking Brunello is in need of considerable cellaring and is clearly built for the long haul. It is a wine of great personality and character.

Tenuta Il Poggione:
In the heart of the Val d'Orcia, a few kilometres from Montalcino, there are places where time seems to have stood still. There are small villages surrounded by medieval walls, hills cultivated with vineyards and olive groves, Romanesque churches with unique charm.

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.

The wines of Il Poggione show consistent exceptional quality year in and year out, often setting a benchmark for the rest of the region. This very limited single vineyard Riserva scored 95 points in the Wine Advocate who said "One of the most positive surprises of my tastings this year wasn’t a 2005 or 2004 Riserva but rather Il Poggione’s 2003 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Vigna Paganelli, which has developed spectacularly since I first reviewed it last year. This awesome, deep Brunello is endowed with gorgeous dark fruit that emerges from the glass with superb richness and power while retaining a traditional sense of structure. There is more than enough fruit to balance the firm tannins that are typical of this hot year. I was blown away by the combination of opulence and classicism present in the 2003 Riserva. If that sounds appealing, believe me it is. The 2003 Riserva is drinking beautifully today and should continue to offer great pleasure for several decades. The estate’s 1975, from a very hot vintage at the time, was in great shape when I last tasted it a few years ago. As an aside, readers interested in older vintages will find plenty of notes on our database. Given the soft market for fine wines and the general disdain for 2003s, I would be shocked if savvy readers aren’t able to pick up this wine at a favorable price at some point in the near future. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2032." Very Limited!!

Shows lovely fresh ripe fruit aromas on the nose with dried cherry and dark chocolate. Medium- to full-bodied with fine tannins and a fresh balanced finish. Best after 2010. 18 000 cases made. JS Wine Spectator.
