Il Poggione Brunello San Leopoldo 1999

Winemaker's Notes:

Brilliant ruby red color. Very elegant on the nose with flowers and spicy notes. The taste is persistent and balanced with a long and seductive finish. A firm and well supported tannic structure that is balanced now but still suggests long aging potential.

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. Here you can appreciate the delights of the Montalcino countryside, walking through vineyards, tasting a glass of Brunello under the shade of an olive tree or relaxing in the swimming pool while admiring one among the most beautiful views of the Tuscan countryside. Upon request, and subject to availability, it is possible to organize numerous activities like, for example, a tour of Tenuta Il Poggione and tasting of its wines, advice on walks in the countryside, tours and guided visits to Montalcino, Siena, etc. The Agriturismo Il Poggione offers this and more; it is a magical place surrounded by vineyards, where you can forget the stress of everyday life and enjoy the peace of the Tuscan countryside.

It wasn't too difficult choosing the wine to have with our Christmas Eve dinner this year. I picked one given to me by a friend last year for Christmas called Il Poggione Brunello di Montalcino, a concentrated and full bodied, earthy Sangiovese. Warm ruby with rusty colors around the edges introduce aromas of leather, plums and vanilla on the way to intense flavors of cola, ripe black cherries, spices and a hint of smoked meats. There is also a floral note present somewhere in the background that floats along the way to the long elegant finish. Buon Natale
