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
16/20 JancisRobinson.com, Walter Speller
"Mid ruby. Cherry compote nose with cinnamon bark. Cherry fruit that is a little too obviously oaked. The elegant, tangy cherry fruit struggles a little with the oak load, but I can see this will make lots of friends. (WS)." Drink 2019 - 2023
"Violet, baked plum, leather and licorice aromas come together in the glass. The round, juicy palate offers ripe blackberry, fleshy black cherry, vanilla and mocha alongside relaxed, slightly dusty tannins. Drink soon."
