IL POGGIONE ROSSO di MONTALCINO 2016 is available to buy in increments of 1
A beautiful Rosso from a top producer of Brunello di Montalcino. It is delicious in itself and a cheaper glimpse of this famous Tuscan style. Spicy red fruits carry charm and brightness but also proper complexity, with a firm acid and tannin structure. Expressing the pure class of Il Poggione, for $30 odd this could cellar a while or be decanted with a beautiful dinner.
Winery notes (2016 Vintage)
"Younger, more accessible version of the Brunello, but already with an excellent structure and a great personality, Rosso di Montalcino is a very important wine for Tenuta Il Poggione.

Produced entirely from Sangiovese grapes, sourced in the estate's younger vineyards, Rosso di Montalcino is aged for 12 months in large casks before a period of bottle aging. The wood aging, although not obligatory for the production of Rosso di Montalcino, tones down the tannins typical of a young Sangiovese and gives this red wine a complexity of aroma and structure that make it a great "Young Brunello".

Intense ruby red colour. Fruity bouquet with red berry notes. Very well structured, yet soft, long-lasting flavour with smooth, velvety tannins."


Monica Larner, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (2016 Vintage)
"The 2016 Rosso di Montalcino is packed tight with bold cherry fruit and blueberry. The wine's color is dark, almost purple, and the aromas are vinous and raw. The bouquet here offers a very direct and immediate quality of fruit, and you can absolutely taste the skins, pulp and seeds of the grape. That taste profile brings you straight inside the Sangiovese berry. All that tonic freshness and fruitiness just calls out for a steaming plate of fettuccine with wild porcini mushrooms piled high on top. Drink 2018 - 2020."
