Il Poggione Brunello di Montalcino Riserva 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Vigna Paganelli is huge, powerful and totally implosive. The seductive allure of the 2007 is nowhere to be found. Instead, the 2006 is built on a serious spine of formidable tannin and dark red/black fruit. Hints of tar, licorice, rose petals and tobacco inform the powerful, virile finish. The 2006 is going to require considerable patience, but it is clearly a jewel of a wine, even at this early stage. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2046...It’s hard to know where to start with these new releases from Il Poggione, as every wine I tasted was strikingly beautiful. This is a great showing from father and son team Fabrizio and Alessandro Bindocci. Il Poggione’s Brunello di Montalcino remains one of the most fairly priced, ageworthy wines on the planet...97." WA 4/12 "Perfumed notes of red rose and pressed flower open the bright bouquet. This is a plump, bold wine with concentration and loads of dark fruits such as prune and black plum. Tight tannic firmness. Let this wine age 10 more years. Beautiful, elegant, bold. Terlato Wines International....96." Wine Enthusiast 2/12 "Dark berries, with hints of raspberries and blackberries on the nose. Full body, with velvety tannins and a medium chewy texture. It's a wine with pretty depth of fruit that needs time to open and soften, from the new wood tannins. Better in 2014...91"jamessuckling.com 02/2012

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. It is right here, in Sant'Angelo in Colle, in the middle of a large Brunello di Montalcino winery, the Tenuta Il Poggione, where you can find the Agriturismo Il Poggione. Built from a completely restored estate farmhouse, the Agriturismo Il Poggione is made up of 7 independent flats with every comfort.

The wines of Il Poggione show consistent exceptional quality year in and year out. In the outstanding 2006 vintage their Brunellos are once again a benchmark for the rest of the region. This very limited single vineyard Riserva scored 97 point in the Wine Advocate who said "The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Vigna Paganelli is huge, powerful and totally implosive.
