96/100 Monica Larner, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, February 2018 (2013 Vintage)
"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."


95/100 Ian d'Agata, Vinous, April 2018 (2013 Vintage)
"Bright red. Pure, refined red cherry and wild strawberry aromas and flavors complicated by sweet spices and aromatic herbs. Deep and multilayered, the wine boasts polished tannins and a harmonious acid spine that lifts and extends the red fruit on the long, suave finish. An essence of Sant’Angelo in Colle with bigger body and palate weight than, for example, the Brunellos of Montosoli, but still sleek and refined as the best wines of Sant’Angelo in Colle can be. The cool-climate-styled 2013 vintage is precisely the type of year in which Il Poggione excels: this lovely, focused wine is the best classico Brunello from Il Poggione in years. Superb."


17+/20 JancisRobinson.com (2013 Vintage)
"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. Drink 2018 – 2026."
