Il Poggione may be known for producing top scoring Brunello di Montalcino but this little Tuscan blend of Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon shouldn’t be over looked. It is a superb wine for cold January nights and reduced January budgets.
The Cab and Merlot offer loads of fruit, weight and richness, yet the Sangiovese adds freshness and acidity that make it easy to enjoy without food. If you want to pair it I would suggest braised meats, hearty stews, mushroom dishes or some antipasto (if you don’t feel like cooking). Enjoy!
