(14.5% alcohol): Bright ruby-red. Aromas of cassis, dark plum, smoky underbrush, spicecake and tobacco, plus a strong component of sweet, nutty oak. Lush, full and sweet, with black fruit, vanilla and licorice flavors dominating. The long finish features big, broad, mouthdusting tannins that coat the front teeth. Given the nature of 2007, this big wine probably won't be as long-lived as some other recent vintages for this estate, whose wines are known for their longevity. But it offers plenty of early appeal for a Riserva and should evolve nicely for another 15 years.

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.
