Red, Tuscany, Italy

In stock


This benchmark Brunello Di Montalcino is made from 100% Sangiovese. It has a brilliant red colour and a very intense bouquet of ripe red fruits, such as cherry and raspberry, and a hint of cinnamon. The palate has velvety tannins and spices from 3 years in French oak barrel, but still has plenty of long-lasting fruit characteristics, such as cassis and blackberry. Enjoy this wine with tomato-based sauces, grilled red meats, or hard mature cheeses. Drink now or keep until 2028. 14.5%ABV.

The story of Tenuta Il Poggione began at the end of the 19th century with Lavinio Franceschi, a landowner from Scandicci. Lavinio was so fascinated by the tales told by a shepherd moving his sheep to their summer pasture on the slopes between Montalcino and Sant’Angelo, that he went to look at the area for himself. He was so taken by the scenery and the land there that he decided to buy land and begin a winery, which was the start of Il Poggione. After more than a Century, Lavinio’s work is continued by his successors, Leopoldo and Livia, who continue to develop the business today. Il Poggione was one of the first wineries to market Brunello di Montalcino wine as early as the 1900’s, and one of the founding members of the Brunello di Montalcino Consortium.
