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.

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.

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