• "Lo Sbrancato" Rosato di Toscana IGT 2020

      “Lo Sbrancato” Rosato di Toscana IGT 2020

      Pure Sangiovese Rosato, fine floral nuances, strawberry and violet hints on the nose. Fresh on the palate, well structured and with clear, red berry aromas through to the finish. SUPERIORE.DE

      "The 2020 Brancato Rosato is richer and darker than expected, showing crushed cherries, sweet herbs and hints of brown sugar. It blends zesty acids and citrus-tinged bright strawberries with a soothing inner sweetness to create a pleasurable display of contrasts. There's so much going on here, coming across as a ripe expression of the vintage yet teeming with energy, as the Brancato tapers off spicy and floral. Il Poggione does it again; this 100% Sangiovese Rose is firing on all cylinders." Vinous

    • Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2016

      Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2016

      The Brunello di Montalcino 2016 is a stunning creation from an iconic vintage. It was the ideal year for Sangiovese to show its complete and true magic. You can feel the deep inner power and integrity of the fruit, yet the wine opens gently on the nose with elegance and grace. The current release shows amazing complexity with a bouquet that opens gently and subtly to reveal dark cherries, spices, balsamic herb and dried violets. On the palate, the impressions are reflected in an ideally precise and well-proportioned way, accompanied by an inner softness and finesse that completely delighted us. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Rich, sparkling ruby-garnet. Impressive and present nose, full of ripe plums, cherries and also blackberries, in the background some leather and liquorice. Juicy and firm on the palate, opens with grippy, gripping tannin, profound, has firm pressure on the final." Falstaff

      "Camphor, new leather, underbrush and blue-flower aromas mingle together in the glass along with a whiff of toasted nut. On the firmly structured palate, assertive, close-grained tannins and an acidic backbone accompany dried cherry, licorice and tobacco." Wine Enthusiast

      "A red with blackberry, cherry, some walnut and chocolate, as well as mahogany. Tea, too. It's full-bodied and firm-tannined with beautiful length and depth. Linear and very fine." James Suckling

      "Among Montalcino's largest estates, Il Poggione continues to impress in 2016 under father and son winemaking duo, Fabrizio and Alessandro Bindocci. The wine wears its warm, southwestern origins assuredly on its sleeve, exhibiting dark bramble fruit intertwined with baked thyme and rosemary, fragrant wet earth and leather. It is weighty but not weighed down, and sports the grip and zip of the vintage, the lingering finish full of tobacco and spice." Decanter

      "The Il Poggione 2016 Brunello di Montalcino opens to a medium dark appearance with pretty Sangiovese shine and a little ruby sparkle. This vintage shows a slightly untamed or wild side with a dense and heavier fruit profile. The focus here is on blackberry, dried cherry, tobacco and even a touch of smoky tobacco or horse saddle. The wine shows the firm grip and tannic backbone that is a common trait in this vintage, especially with the vineyards on this southern, sunlit side of the appellation. I also get a considerable flash of acidity on the close, almost too much, that certainly needs a few more years to soften. You really need to wait with this one." Robert Parker

      "This Brunello leads with black cherry, black currant and violet aromas, augmented by flavors of iron, tobacco and spice. Dusty tannins emerge on the lingering finish, while the sweet fruit persists. Should be compelling in a decade." Wine Spectator

      "I'm not sure how Il Poggione manages to remain one of the largest producers of Brunello, maintaining such a high level of quality and turning out some of the best wines of the vintage year after year - but they do. The 2016 Brunello di Montalcino is yet another stunning example. Depths of mineral-encased black cherries, sage, allspice, licorice, tobacco and crushed violets lift up from the glass. It's seamlessly silky, even as the palate is peppered with tart red and black berries, nervous acids and savory exotic spices. This shows the density and weight of the vintage in a youthfully monolithic stance, yet with all the necessary components to maintain perfect balance. The 2016 Il Poggione seems to fold in upon itself through the finish, which is dark, mysterious and structured, with only hints of black tea and licorice to tempt the imagination. It's a classic in the making." Vinous

    • Brunello di Montalcino "Vigna Paganelli" Riserva DOCG 2015

      Brunello di Montalcino “Vigna Paganelli” Riserva DOCG 2015

      Only in the best years does Il Poggione vinify a Riserva. In the picture-book 2015 vintage, this single-vineyard Brunello presents itself as an unadulterated, clear and flawless interpretation of Sangiovese. On the seamless and long-lasting bouquet, complex and deep with floral notes and hints of cocoa, vanilla and cherry. On the palate, an intense and brilliant fruit that blends well with the tannins and lingers long on the tongue. A great, elegant Tuscan with a fine, silky texture and of great power and personality at the same time. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Powerful, sparkling ruby. Presents itself in the nose with emphatically ripe notes of pickled plums and cherries, in the background a little black truffle. Very powerful on the palate, fills the mouth richly, hearty, gripping tannin in many layers, firm pressure, very long finish, a long runner." Falstaff

      "Baked plum, new leather, camphor and scorched earth aromas waft out of the glass on this powerfully built red. Full bodied and concentrated, the dense palate delivers cherry marinated in spirits, prune, licorice and tobacco framed in tightly knit, close-grained tannins." Wine Enthusiast

      "Expressive scents of dark plum and baking spice emerge swiftly from the glass. This is powerfully fruited, full-figured and expansive. Accents of tar, leather and a pop of scorched orange peel add abundant intrigue. The tannins are smooth but teeth-coating and could do with some time to retreat. This promises much pleasure for years to come." Decanter

      "This red is subtle and laced with cherry, plum and floral notes, backed by vibrant acidity. Earth and tobacco accents add depth. It took a few moments of aeration to shake off the cobwebs, and this isn't an expressive style, but it has its appeal. Will need time to absorb the substantial tannins." Wine Spectator

      "So many sour cherries rise up from the glass, along with orange rind and lemon peel. The full-bodied palate has a very serious and concentrated core of florals and fruit, and the tannins have an iron-fisted, strapping build. Long, chewy and structured. One of the best in years from here." James Suckling

      "The 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Vigna Paganelli Riserva from Il Poggione keeps you at the edge of your seat, with a gorgeous display of herbal-tinged black cherry, sweet white smoke, cedar and cloves. The textures are silky and polished, as this coasts effortlessly across a core of salty minerals and bright acids, taking on a decidedly savory, umami note. There's simply so much going on and so much to like about the 2015 Riserva, as balsamic spice, hints of wild herbs and tobacco form up toward the close over a coating of classically fine tannin. Tasting the 2015 Riserva, you could easily forget that it hails from a ripe vintage. This needs five or more years to unwind and should then excel for well over a decade in our cellars. Tasted twice and over the course of two days." Vinous

      "This single-vineyard Riserva delivers a generous, abundant and determined personality. This is Brunello with a capital B. The 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Vigna Paganelli benefits from a warm and sun-soaked microclimate that is shielded from cold winter winds. You can taste the good health of the grapes thanks to those very direct aromas of black cherry, plum, tar, campfire ash and chalky mineral. The Paganelli vineyard is 12 hectares in size, with vines planted in 1964. The last time this wine was made was in 2012. Fruit from those old vines shape complex aromas, elegant tannins and bright freshness. Despite that handsome DNA, this is another new release from Il Poggione that will require more cellar age."

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

      Brunello di Montalcino “Vigna Paganelli” Riserva DOCG 2012 · 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

      "The Il Poggione 2016 Brunello di Montalcino opens to a medium dark appearance with pretty Sangiovese shine and a little ruby sparkle. This vintage shows a slightly untamed or wild side with a dense and heavier fruit profile. The focus here is on blackberry, dried cherry, tobacco and even a touch of smoky tobacco or horse saddle. The wine shows the firm grip and tannic backbone that is a common trait in this vintage, especially with the vineyards on this southern, sunlit side of the appellation. I also get a considerable flash of acidity on the close, almost too much, that certainly needs a few more years to soften. You really need to wait with this one." Robert Parker

      "This Brunello leads with black cherry, black currant and violet aromas, augmented by flavors of iron, tobacco and spice. Dusty tannins emerge on the lingering finish, while the sweet fruit persists. Should be compelling in a decade." Wine Spectator

      "I'm not sure how Il Poggione manages to remain one of the largest producers of Brunello, maintaining such a high level of quality and turning out some of the best wines of the vintage year after year - but they do. The 2016 Brunello di Montalcino is yet another stunning example. Depths of mineral-encased black cherries, sage, allspice, licorice, tobacco and crushed violets lift up from the glass. It's seamlessly silky, even as the palate is peppered with tart red and black berries, nervous acids and savory exotic spices. This shows the density and weight of the vintage in a youthfully monolithic stance, yet with all the necessary components to maintain perfect balance. The 2016 Il Poggione seems to fold in upon itself through the finish, which is dark, mysterious and structured, with only hints of black tea and licorice to tempt the imagination. It's a classic in the making." Vinous

    • 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

    • Brunello di Montalcino "Vigna Paganelli" Riserva DOCG 2015 <br>Double-MAGNUM in OWC

      Brunello di Montalcino “Vigna Paganelli” Riserva DOCG 2015 · Double-MAGNUM in OWC

      Only in the best years does Il Poggione vinify a Riserva. In the picture-book 2015 vintage, this single-vineyard Brunello presents itself as an unadulterated, clear and flawless interpretation of Sangiovese. On the seamless and long-lasting bouquet, complex and deep with floral notes and hints of cocoa, vanilla and cherry. On the palate, an intense and brilliant fruit that blends well with the tannins and lingers long on the tongue. A great, elegant Tuscan with a fine, silky texture and of great power and personality at the same time. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Powerful, sparkling ruby. Presents itself in the nose with emphatically ripe notes of pickled plums and cherries, in the background a little black truffle. Very powerful on the palate, fills the mouth richly, hearty, gripping tannin in many layers, firm pressure, very long finish, a long runner." Falstaff

      "Baked plum, new leather, camphor and scorched earth aromas waft out of the glass on this powerfully built red. Full bodied and concentrated, the dense palate delivers cherry marinated in spirits, prune, licorice and tobacco framed in tightly knit, close-grained tannins." Wine Enthusiast

      "Expressive scents of dark plum and baking spice emerge swiftly from the glass. This is powerfully fruited, full-figured and expansive. Accents of tar, leather and a pop of scorched orange peel add abundant intrigue. The tannins are smooth but teeth-coating and could do with some time to retreat. This promises much pleasure for years to come." Decanter

      "This red is subtle and laced with cherry, plum and floral notes, backed by vibrant acidity. Earth and tobacco accents add depth. It took a few moments of aeration to shake off the cobwebs, and this isn't an expressive style, but it has its appeal. Will need time to absorb the substantial tannins." Wine Spectator

      "So many sour cherries rise up from the glass, along with orange rind and lemon peel. The full-bodied palate has a very serious and concentrated core of florals and fruit, and the tannins have an iron-fisted, strapping build. Long, chewy and structured. One of the best in years from here." James Suckling

      "The 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Vigna Paganelli Riserva from Il Poggione keeps you at the edge of your seat, with a gorgeous display of herbal-tinged black cherry, sweet white smoke, cedar and cloves. The textures are silky and polished, as this coasts effortlessly across a core of salty minerals and bright acids, taking on a decidedly savory, umami note. There's simply so much going on and so much to like about the 2015 Riserva, as balsamic spice, hints of wild herbs and tobacco form up toward the close over a coating of classically fine tannin. Tasting the 2015 Riserva, you could easily forget that it hails from a ripe vintage. This needs five or more years to unwind and should then excel for well over a decade in our cellars. Tasted twice and over the course of two days." Vinous

      "This single-vineyard Riserva delivers a generous, abundant and determined personality. This is Brunello with a capital B. The 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Vigna Paganelli benefits from a warm and sun-soaked microclimate that is shielded from cold winter winds. You can taste the good health of the grapes thanks to those very direct aromas of black cherry, plum, tar, campfire ash and chalky mineral. The Paganelli vineyard is 12 hectares in size, with vines planted in 1964. The last time this wine was made was in 2012. Fruit from those old vines shape complex aromas, elegant tannins and bright freshness. Despite that handsome DNA, this is another new release from Il Poggione that will require more cellar age."

    About the winemakersIl PoggioneTuscany | 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.
