    • Rosso di Montalcino DOC 2016

      Rosso di Montalcino DOC 2016

      Deep ruby red, precise, clear fruit in the nose with a light mineral note. Pleasant, smooth taste, round and of good substance. A Rosso di Montalcino with a lot of charm. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Dark ruby with orange tinges. Subdued, but fine and concentrated nose. There is lots of substance on the palate that is slow to unfurl. Gripping bitter-sweet tannins and juicy cherry fruit on the finish." Jancis Robinson

      "Pure, fruity and elegant, featuring cherry, plum, currant and iron aromas and flavors. Well-structured, yet balanced, with a lingering, fresh aftertaste of fruit, iron and leather notes." Wine Spectator

      "There’s plenty of nutmeg and dried-herb character in addition to redcurrants and Chinese spices. Medium body, lovely and grippy tannins and a tight finish. So well-crafted." James Suckling

    • Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2014

      Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2014

      Rose petals, mint, cinnamon, sweet dark cherries and smoke melt into its intense bouquet. The taste is just as rich in nuances, medium-weight body, emphasizes long, much strength and energy. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Palish ruby. Tangy, supple fruit with chewy tannins. Succulent, sweet raspberry and cherry on the finish. Very flattering and appetising." Jancis Robinson

      "A riper style with plenty of dried red cherries and plums, as well as woody spice notes. The palate is quite fleshy with an open-knit thread of blue plums and darker cherries." James Suckling

      "Aromas of underbrush, truffle, dark-skinned berry and tobacco lead the nose of this elegantly structured red. The taut, vibrant palate offers Marasca cherry, cranberry, orange zest and licorice framed by racy acidity and fine-grained tannins." Wine Enthusiast

      "The style of the vintage is more approachable and less extractive, dominated by aromas of rose, blood orange and a touch of sour cherry, with deeper notes of black pepper and liquorice root expressed on the leaner, chalky palate." Decanter

      "Good full bright red. Red plum, apple, and tobacco aromas are delightfully complemented in the mouth by alkaline and mineral nuances. Saliva-inducing salinity adds to the appeal of a lusciously persistent finish featuring repeating red fruit and herbal nuances." Vinous

      "This is smooth and caressing, wrapped around cherry, plum, loam, tobacco and cumin flavors. Hefty tannins line the finish, but all the elements are in the right proportion. Features a fine, complex finish." Wine Spectator

      "Il Poggione has one of the appellation's most enviable track records for quality and cellar longevity. The 2014 Brunello di Montalcino is a different beast. This wine prizes elegance, finesse and a compact mouthfeel. I would suggest a slightly shorter drinking window of approximately ten years. No matter how you cut it, the wine is absolutely beautiful and indeed ranks high on a list of favorite wines from the vintage. The bouquet is chiseled and tight with wild blueberry, plum, red rose and a touch of cherry confit. No doubt the mouthfeel is thinner in this vintage, but the wine has plenty more going on to keep your attention. I'm liking it. I went back to the bottle a few days after it had been opened and the wine was still going strong." Robert Parker

    • Brunello di Montalcino "Vigna Paganelli" Riserva DOCG 2012

      Brunello di Montalcino “Vigna Paganelli” Riserva DOCG 2012

      Brunello Riserva Paganelli with a racy, very intense bouquet of dark fruits, earth, leather, tar, liquorice and menthol. On the palate, in addition to the great fullness and depth, there is also a wonderful inner sweetness. The harmonious taste spreads far and wide, the aromas of the French oak are pleasantly restrained and the tannins perfectly integrated. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Here's a beautifully rich and succulent Brunello that drinks very nicely straight out of the gate. The 2012 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Vigna Paganelli delivers a warm, inviting and velvety presentation. This bold wine is redolent of black cherry and dried blackberry with sweet almond, toasted spice and balsam herb on the long finish. What stands out most, however, is the wine's rich texture that floods the mouth from front to back. That richness is fueled by the warmth of the vintage but also by the magnificent oak integration. This Riserva is aged in botti grandi for four long years. Bottle production is 45,000 strong." Robert Parker

      "Rich and evocative of cherry, currant, mineral, spice and tobacco flavors, this tightly knit red is harmonious and solidly built. Remains vibrant and persists on the mineral-inflected aftertaste. Fine length." Wine Spectator

      "The 2012 vintage was extremely dry in Montalcino, mostly on the southern side. Despite several clean, sound examples of the vintage, the finished product is often chalky and dry at the end. However, Vigna Paganelli benefitted from its old vines to produce one of the best 2012s of the entire appellation. It's meaty on the nose with some cherry notes, leaning towards an underlying blood orange aroma. There's also an overt oaky character which is still remarkably present, and a powerful, extracted palate with firm yet velvety tannins. Refreshing acidity balances the 15% alcohol." Decanter

      "Rather sweet due to the super ripe vintage. But there's also great subtlety, enormous depth and a ton of tannin behind the opulence. The super long finish is incredibly focused. Try to wait until at least 2020. This stunning Brunello has decades of life ahead of it." James Suckling

      Classical aroma of sour cherries, sour cherries, dark forest fruits and spices, delicate structure, compact, well integrated tannin, impressive finish and already in young years a pleasure. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Il Poggione has done a terrific job with its 2011 Brunello diMontalcino. The wine is soft, yielding and charged with a velvety andsmooth texture. It is deeply redolent of dark berry, black cherry,spice, leather and tobacco. The wine's sunny personality never feelsflat or too dense. In fact, the wine offers a very tight and steelybackbone that gives the wine stature and strength. This is one of myfavorite Brunellos from the 2011 vintage." Robert Parker

      "A dark, powerful wine, the 2011 Brunello di Montalcino offersnotable depth and intensity. Il Poggione's 2011 is one of the richest,most powerful wines of the year. Black cherry, plum, lavender, clovesand new leather are some of the first nuances that open up. With time in the glass, the 2011 becomes more lifted, as brighter red cherry andraspberry-infused flavors gradually release. This is a rare 2011 thatdemands at least a good few years in the cellar. In 2011, Il Poggionedid not bottle a Riserva. All the juice went into the straightBrunello." Antonio Galloni

      "A red with plum, meat, cedar and sandalwood character on the noseand palate. Full-bodied, tight and structured. Racy finish. Refined atthe end for a 2011." James Suckling

      "A beefy style, evoking plum, leather, tobacco and earth flavors,backed by dense, dusty tannins. Starts out juicy before the gruff finish takes over. Fresh and long." Wine Spectator

    • Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2013 <br>MAGNUM in OWC

      Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2013 · MAGNUM in OWC

      The Brunello of ll Poggione is especially in the excellent vintage 2013 a remarkably beautiful wine. Rose petals, mint, cinnamon, sweet dark cherries and smoke melt into its intense bouquet. The taste is just as rich in nuances, medium-weight body, emphasizes long, much strength and energy. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Glossy ruby with a fine garnet edge. Intense, finely drawn nose with notes of plums and tobacco and dark forest raspberries. Round and supple in its base and course, opening with fine-meshed tannin, very polished, delicate and long". Falstaff

      "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." Robert Parker

      "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." Jancis Robinson

      "A Brunello with tile and berry character. Medium body, firm and silky tannins and a flavorful finish. A little tight now." James Suckling

      "The harvest date returned once more to that of tradition, commencing on 23 September – whereas these days it usually begins around 3 September. This could therefore be considered a fresh if not cool vintage, yet the long growing season helped the extraction of velvety tannins, concentrated on the mid-palate. The structure, combined with bright cassis notes, a core of cherry and crystallised violet, and savoury minerality on the finish, will keep the wine in good shape for the long haul." Decanter

      "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." Ian d’Agata (vinous.com)

      "This red strikes a nice balance between plum and cherry fruit and beefy tannins, featuring elements of leather, tobacco, earth and iron. Balanced and long, with a gripping finish." Wine Spectator

      The bouquet is full-bodied with a colourful bouquet of aromas of sour cherries, blackberries, currants, tobacco and chocolate. Balanced the dense taste with notes of red berries, very elegant tannins and persistent finish. A classic Il Poggione and again among the best of his vintage! SUPERIORE.DE

      "Raspberry bouquet, herbal and caramel notes; the base compact, the tannins robust, melts and yet also long." Vinum

      "Walnuts and cedar with plums and hints of milk chocolate. Always subtle. Medium body, a solid core of fruit and medium-chewy tannins. Center palate of cherry fruit. Give it a year or two to soften." James Suckling

      "Il Poggione is a Brunello superstar and a vintage like this reveals every reason why that affirmation is true. From the second the 2012 Brunello di Montalcino pours into the glass, you know you are in for something special. The wine is darkly saturated and rich in appearance. Absent are those slightly amber or browning hues you often get with Sangiovese in a hot vintage. Nor does the wine show flat or tired characteristics. Instead, the quality of fruit is vibrant and rich. This is a healthy, generous and exuberant Brunello with dark density and succulent fruit flavors that are followed by integrated spice and tobacco. The balance is impressive and one thing you get here is fresh acidity. This is not to be underestimated, because the acidity quota in the 2012 vintage across the appellation is not as high or evident as usual. This is one of the year's best Brunellos." Robert Parker

      "Good full red. Medicinal red cherry, raspberry, sweet spices and mint on the fresh, precise nose. Bright and sweet, with a penetrating, austere quality to its flavors of red fruits, minerals and medicinal herbs. Harmonious acidity nicely frames the pure, long, youthfully tight finish. Lovely young Brunello that will repay cellaring." Ian d’Agata (vinous.com)

      "Sant'Angelo in Colle. Dark garnet. Intriguing mix of fresh veg and compost on the nose, plus a bit of charred meat. Round on the palate – already very suave, and very Brunello. Confident expression of the vintage’s combination of ripeness and freshness." Jancis Robinson

      "Shades of leather, spice, tea and iron surround the strawberry and cherry notes in this sleek, energetic red. Firm and tense, with a solid band of tannins lending grip to the finish." Wine Spectator

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." Ian d’Agata (vinous.com)

      "This red strikes a nice balance between plum and cherry fruit and beefy tannins, featuring elements of leather, tobacco, earth and iron. Balanced and long, with a gripping finish." Wine Spectator

    • Brunello di Montalcino "Vigna Paganelli" Riserva DOCG 2012 <br>Double-MAGNUM in OWC

      Brunello di Montalcino “Vigna Paganelli” Riserva DOCG 2012 · Double-MAGNUM in OWC

      Brunello Riserva Paganelli with a racy, very intense bouquet of dark fruits, earth, leather, tar, liquorice and menthol. On the palate, in addition to the great fullness and depth, there is also a wonderful inner sweetness. The harmonious taste spreads far and wide, the aromas of the French oak are pleasantly restrained and the tannins perfectly integrated. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Here's a beautifully rich and succulent Brunello that drinks very nicely straight out of the gate. The 2012 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Vigna Paganelli delivers a warm, inviting and velvety presentation. This bold wine is redolent of black cherry and dried blackberry with sweet almond, toasted spice and balsam herb on the long finish. What stands out most, however, is the wine's rich texture that floods the mouth from front to back. That richness is fueled by the warmth of the vintage but also by the magnificent oak integration. This Riserva is aged in botti grandi for four long years. Bottle production is 45,000 strong." Robert Parker

      "Rich and evocative of cherry, currant, mineral, spice and tobacco flavors, this tightly knit red is harmonious and solidly built. Remains vibrant and persists on the mineral-inflected aftertaste. Fine length." Wine Spectator

      "The 2012 vintage was extremely dry in Montalcino, mostly on the southern side. Despite several clean, sound examples of the vintage, the finished product is often chalky and dry at the end. However, Vigna Paganelli benefitted from its old vines to produce one of the best 2012s of the entire appellation. It's meaty on the nose with some cherry notes, leaning towards an underlying blood orange aroma. There's also an overt oaky character which is still remarkably present, and a powerful, extracted palate with firm yet velvety tannins. Refreshing acidity balances the 15% alcohol." Decanter

      "Rather sweet due to the super ripe vintage. But there's also great subtlety, enormous depth and a ton of tannin behind the opulence. The super long finish is incredibly focused. Try to wait until at least 2020. This stunning Brunello has decades of life ahead of it." James Suckling

    About the winemakers
    Il Poggione
    Tuscany | Montalcino
    Il Poggione

    Il Poggione Winery has mastered all the wine crises thanks to its excellent quality wines and an effective distribution structure without any wounds. It has also contributed significantly to the worldwide recognition and recognition of Brunello. The traditional winery was one of the first to make this excellent wine available to a larger circle of buyers through a moderate price policy. It was above all the well-known and now deceased winemaker Dr. Pier Luigi Talenti who, with great skill, helped Tenuta Il Poggione to its present top position.

    The origins of the winery in the hamlet of Sant, which is one of the oldest producers in Tuscany'Angelo near Colle dates back to the year 1630. It was acquired in 1890 by the Florentine Lavinio Franceschi family. Today, more than 120 years later, the winery is managed by the heirs Leopoldo and Livia Franceschi. In their work, both can draw on a wealth of family oenological experience. The director is the dynamic Fabrizio Bindocci, since 2012 also president of the Consorzio del Vino Brunello di Montalcino.

    In addition to 123 hectares of vines, olives and cereals also thrive in the wooded farm. The graceful historic vineyards show very well the development of the vine culture of many decades. The grapes thrive at different altitudes. The medium-heavy soils have considerable skeletal components and are of very high quality. The areas reserved for Brunello and planted with Sangiovese reach heights between 150 and 400 metres.

    The wines of Tenuta Il Poggione mature in a magnificent cellar complex newly created in 2004, partly in oak barrels at depths of up to five metres. The Franceschi family also demonstrates its close connection with Montalcino's tradition in the vinification process. The modern preparation plants meet the highest demands. An important part of the new cellar is also a high-performance oil mill. SUPERIORE.DE

    "Perhaps the most enduring vineyard for Brunello and Rosso di Montalcino." Hugh Johnson.
