    Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2015 <br>MAGNUM in OWC

    Rose blossoms, mint, cinnamon, dark sweet cherries and smoke lift themselves out of the glass in a translucent, wiry Brunello that builds on energy, power and opulence. The 2015 edition is particularly precise and nuanced. Length and fruit are in the foreground here, and together with a clearly defined tannin structure, the team around Leopoldo Franceschi has created a real masterpiece here, which will only really reveal itself in the coming years. As in every good vintage, it is one of our favourites, and its outstanding value is also great fun! SUPERIORE.DE

    "Tints variously of flowers, berries and leather; in the mouth juicy fresh, elegant structure, with much melt and good evolution to fresh fruit aromas. Pleases with its finesse." Vinum

    "Firm, almost astringent, deep and complex, slightly cedar and tobacco scent of ripe red and a little black berries with a little tar, coffee and cocoa. Very firm, juicy, ripe fruit with a certain acid bite and present, youthful, yet fine and ripe tannins, delicately roasted and hinted bacon on the palate, spicy and dried vegetable to tobacco notes, again a hint of tar, persistent on the palate, has substance and depth, salty minerality, cedar notes, multi-layered, very good, extremely firm, concentrated finish with tart juice, salt and spice. Great." Wein-Plus

    "Bright, intense ruby grenade. Reveals itself with a seductive nose of blackberry, cherry and plum, with a hint of leather and cloves. Shows good tension on the palate, handy tannin in many layers, lots of juicy fruit, long finish." Falstaff

    "Tasted blind. Lustrous mid ruby. Lots of concentrated, sweet fruit on the nose. Fantastic chewy tannins and energetic, juicy fruit deliver tactile fireworks on the palate." Jancis Robinson

    "In 2015, the Brunello was crafted only from their highest vineyards, up to 400 metres. True to its balmy southern origins, it demonstrates immense concentration and ripeness, yet it remains balanced in its considerable proportions. Luxuriously textured fruit is firmly girdled by powerful, chewy tannins and there is no sacrifice of flavour either - iodine, earth, leather, sweet tobacco and dried thyme are woven throughout. The sapid finish lingers leisurely." Decanter

    "Wild herb and Mediterranean (i)macchia(n) notes mark this expressive red. Though well-endowed with tannins, this is on the sleek side, showing vibrant acidity. Cherry, strawberry, floral and tobacco flavors join the party as this cruises to a long finish. Best from 2023 through 2042." 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. Drink from 2025." James Suckling

    "The Il Poggione 2015 Brunello di Montalcino shows a darker and more concentrated appearance than many of its peers. The wine is beautifully abundant and fragrant in the most exuberant and expressive manner. You will recognize aromas of moist soil, tobacco and smoke. Candied cherry hovers over the entire bouquet. Fruit is sourced from older vines (all over 25 years old). Il Poggione occupies a special spot within the Montalcino appellation, and the area always produces slightly more concentrated and powerful wines. I find that to be particularly true in this gorgeous 2015 vintage. I am also very attracted to that almost dusty note of crushed mineral that rides long on the full-bodied finish. Il Poggione's Brunello is also distinguished by firm, youthful tannin that need a few more years to unwind." Robert Parker

    "Il Poggione 2015 Brunello di Montalcino offers up a dark, earthy, almost animal-like expression, showing black soil and undergrowth, giving way to crushed black cherry, dusty spice, and dried florals which lift the experience. On the palate, soft, fleshy textures usher in fresh cherry and strawberry, as brisk acids add energy, with savory herbs and minerals saturating, as the 2015 Il Poggione’s fruit nearly masks its structural core. The finish is long yet fresh, with classic, fine tannins, dried red fruits and pretty inner floral tones lingering throughout this perfectly balanced expression. The 2015 s pure class and built for the cellar." Vinous
