GamePasta DishesRed Meat
Il Poggione is Montalcino’s fourth largest estate and is considered by many wine critics to be one of the most reasonably priced and cellar worthy wines on the market today. ll Poggione has a reputation for making consistent and stylish Brunello di Montalcino.
The grapes are sourced from the winery’s oldest vineyard planted between 150 and 450 metres above sea level.The wine was aged for 36 months in large French oak barrels followed by a long bottle aging. Ruby red in colour, with a very intense, persistent nose and with red fruit notes. Warm, balanced flavour with velvet-smooth tannins. Optimal drinking window between 2022 and 2035.
“Bright red. Pure, refined red cherry and wild strawberry aromas and flavors complicated by sweet spices and aromatic herbs. Deep and multilayered, the wine boasts polished tannins and a harmonious acid spine that lifts and extends the red fruit on the long, suave finish. An essence of Sant’Angelo in Colle with bigger body and palate weight than, for example, the Brunellos of Montosoli, but still sleek and refined as the best wines of Sant’Angelo in Colle can be. The cool-climate-styled 2013 vintage is precisely the type of year in which Il Poggione excels: this lovely, focused wine is the best classico Brunello from Il Poggione in years. Superb.” 95pts Vinous (Ian d’Agata)
