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's 2005 Rosso di Montalcino is a lovely, feminine wine redolent of crushed flowers, raspberries and spices. It shows notable clarity and freshness in a mid-weight, classic style.

Wine Tasting NotesAn intense, ruby red wine with ample, well-pronounced perfumes. It has great body and structure. Enjoyable young, it will continue to improve in the bottle.

Established in 1890, Tenuta Il Poggione has become one of the most highly regarded and sought-after Brunello di Montalcino producers. This Tuscan estate, or tenuta, is owned by the Franceschi family, who continue to build on their already stellar reputation. Il Poggione Rosso di Montalcino is made with carefully selected Sangiovese grapes handpicked from estate vines that are at least 15 years old. Ruby red in color, this wine shows an intense bouquet of wild berry fruit. The palate is velvety and rich, with great structure and smooth, rounded tannins. Aged in French Allier Oak barriques for 12 months, this wine tastes just like Brunello at half the price. A Great wine and an incredible value.Tasting Notes<li>Rich, cherry aromas on the nose<li>Fruit forward body<li>A great match with butterflied lamb<small>
