Winemaker's Notes:

Im Glas zeigt sich der Wein in einem satten Rubinrot, klare Frucht nach roten Beeren in der Nase mit leicht mineralischer Note. Im Geschmack würzig und erdig, mit schner Struktur. Angenehm rund mit weichen Tanninen und von guter Substanz.

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.

Dark ruby in color with a touch of brick. Rather closed on the nose with soft cherries in the mouth. Highly acidic wine with almost no tannins leading to a short finish.

The first whiff shows deep, rich, red and black cherry notes with classic Montalcino character, showing earthy spice (fennel?) and a pleasant tartness in the fragrances much like orange rind. Also on the nose is a firmness and mineral character that add seriousness and stature. The palate is mouthwatering with its sweet acidity, full black cherry flavor and medium weight. There is a hint of sweetness, just enough to balance out the rusticity and minerality. Later, grilled meat and herb notes develop on the solid finish. The Il Poggione Rosso can be relied upon year after year for an affordable alternative to Brunello, although their Brunello is top notch and should be enjoyed as well. Serious wine at a great price.

Lacks the complexity and intensity of the best Rosso di Montalcino. Enjoyable but not a particularly good value.

Underbrush, dill, espresso and toasted oak aromas lead the nose on this big but simple Rosso. The palate displays ripe black fruit, sweet vanilla and roasted coffee bean alongside packed tannins and the warmth of alcohol.

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.

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.

Intense ruby-red color. Fruity bouquet with red berry notes. Very well structured, mellow, long-lasting flavour with smooth, velvety tannins.

Il Poggione owns approximately 250 acres of vineyards in the Brunello di Montalcino zone, with 118 acres producing the Brunello Riserva and Brunello wines. The remaining 132 acres are planted to Sangiovese for Rosso, Cabernet Sauvignon.

A younger and more accessible version of Brunello, Il Poggione Rosso di Montalcino is made with carefully selected Sangiovese grapes handpicked from the youngest of estate vines that are at least 15 years old. A baby Brunello . Velvety and rich, with great structure and smooth, rounded tannins.
