Il Poggione Rosso di Montalcino 2016

Member Review by EMark:

A perfectly functional wine—nothing horrible about it, but, also, nothing memorable. Fairly light-bodied. Very light red fruit on the tip of the tongue. Quite acidic, which I’m OK with, but might put off other tasters.

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. 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.

Il Poggione is one of the most highly regarded Brunello di Montalcino producers with a rich history and reputation for stylistic consistency. This is a younger, more accessible version of Brunello, but already very well-developed with a strong character, Rosso di Montalcino is a very important wine for Tenuta Il Poggione. Produced entirely from Sangiovese grapes from the youngest of the estate’s vineyards, Rosso di Montalcino is matured for 12 months in large barrels before undergoing a period of bottle aging. Some have called this a “Baby Brunello.” - Winery Color: Intense ruby-red color Aroma: Fruity bouquet with red berry notes. Taste: Very well structured, mellow, long lasting flavor with smooth, velvety tannins. Length/Type of Fermentation: 12-15 days submerged cap fermentation at controlled temperatures of 25°-28°C. Length/Type of Aging: 12 months in French oak barrels and barriques, followed by a minimum of 8 months bottle aging. Alcohol: 14.50%

A fine Rosso, with cherry, floral, tobacco and spice flavors imparting harmony and grace. The lively acidity and refined tannins frame the flavors. Lingering finish. Drink now through 2020. 12,500 cases made. -BS The 2012 Rosso di Montalcino could almost be mistaken for a Riserva given the amazing depth and impenetrable darkness it shows in the glass. The wine is made from the estate's youngest and lowest vines that have definitely taken on the brunt of the 2009 summer heat. The mouthfeel is supple and rich and somewhat one-dimensional. At this young stage, the bouquet shows awkward whiffs of toasted coconut and popcorn that prevented me from scoring it higher. Drink: 2014-2017.
