Immensely concentrated and age worthy, as serious and complete as many super-premium labels from anywhere in the world...for only $65! But what we really love is how it perfectly expresses Brunello Sangiovese – nothing clunky just a vibrant, deep unfolding of infinite complexity in red fruit, salty/savoury and floral nuances, and proper structure. A classic in limited supply.

Overview

Sangiovese

Its Origins

Il Poggione is one of Montalcino's best and also more historic estates, established at the end of the 19th Century by Lavinio Franceschi and now run by the fifth generation. But the star quality may be the current winemakers, father-son team Fabrizio and Alessandro Bindocci. With consummate skill they have introduced modern technology while maintaining traditional style and techniques, similarly balancing a natural and non-interventionist ethic while remaining unusually involved in every aspect of vineyard and production. As superlatives are lavished on their wines from the highest quarters, Il Poggione is coming to embody the supreme quality on offer from this famous yet still undervalued Tuscan appellation.

What The Critics Say

96/100 Parker's Wine Advocate, Monica Larner

"The 2013 Brunello di Montalcino lives up to the impeccable reputation garnered by this estate over the years. This is a profound and beautifully rendered Sangiovese that delivers bold and luscious fruit quality with black cherry and spicy plum at the start. The bouquet follows through with mild oak notes of smoke, tar and toasted nut. There is another aromatic component that includes crushed stone and dried herb or mint. This Brunello shows elegant evolution in the glass and promises a very long aging future ahead. Some 200,000 bottles were made, so it should be easy to locate this excellent wine." Drink 2020 - 2035

17+/20 JancisRobinson.com, Walter Speller

"Maturing concentrated ruby with orange tinges. Youthful and herbal on the nose. Still compact and with gorgeous juicy cherry fruit and muscular tannins. Delicious now but will improve. Has plenty of structure and fruit for that. (WS)" Drink 2018 - 2026
