Bright, dark red with ruby highlights. Youthfully medicinal aromas of dark fruits and minerals. Brooding and primary today, with powerful black cherry, licorice, mineral and menthol flavors dominated by the wine's firm tannic spine. This extremely backward, structured riserva will need a good eight to ten years of aging and should be long-lived, but it's tough going today.

About This Producer


Tenuta Il Poggione is one of Montalcino's major wineries. The estate's guiding principle is to pay meticulous attention to the vineyards, because they believe that the secret to producing great red wines lies in tending the vines. The estate has also drastically reduced the quantity of grapes it produces in recent years. By green harvesting, regularly monitoring the condition of the vineyards and constantly checking the need for soil nutrients, an excellent product is achieved even in less favorable years. Grapes are harvested entirely by hand and the wine is made using traditional methodology, although modern, state-of-the-art equipment is used in vinification.
