Buy Il Poggione Brunello di Montalcino
Ruby red tending to garnet, very intense, persistent nose with red fruit notes. Warm, balanced flavour with velvet-smooth tannins. Long-lasting aroma.
Wine Advocate 95 points - The estate’s 2007 Brunello di Montalcino has developed beautifully over the last year. Freshly cut flowers, dark raspberries, spices and mint all take shape in a 2007 that impresses for its freshness and pure energy. Sweet roses and violets linger on the finish. I imagine the 2007 will enjoy a very broad drinking window. Today it is drop-dead gorgeous. The combination of dry extract above 34 and acidity north of 6% is exceedingly rare and suggests the wine will age for several decades. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2047. (Jun 2013)

93 POINTS - Robert Parker - This wine opens with a very distinctive nose redolent of scorched earth, tobacco and cherries initially showing a wilder side of Sangiovese in its hints of gaminess. It is full-bodied and structured on the palate, where it offers plenty of fruit, with considerable length as well as big, potent tannins.

91 POINTS - ST IWC - Deep red-ruby. Red berries, spicy oak, menthol and woodsy underbrush on the nose; very sangiovese. Broad and vinous, with lovely sweetness to the flavors of redcurrant and red licorice. Sexy, fat wine with plenty of acidity to carry its considerable body. Finishes long, with substantial fine tannins that dust the teeth.

Wine maker notes
Brunello is the prince of Montalcino wines, produced exclusively from Sangiovese grapes picked by hand from vines at least 20 years old. After careful fermentation at controlled temperatures, Tenuta Il Poggione Brunello di Montalcino is matured for 3 years in French oak barrels. After being aged in wood, the wine is bottle aged for a time, an essential process in guaranteeing the pleasing quality and complex attributes that have made this wine world-famous.

Food pairing
Red meats, game, mature cheeses.
