    The 1999 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva shows a superior level of fruit integrity and bright intensity next to the base Brunello from the same vintage. This is a lovely, yet unabashedly masculine expression that puts its pretty tertiary (or aged) aromas on full display. There's plenty of old leather and smoked bacon on the bouquet, but these elements are offset by a greater sense of fruit fullness in the mouth. The close is tight and compact and the wine improves with up to three hours of aeration before serving. Drink: 2014-2028

    Wonderful aromas of crushed berries and flowers follow through to a full-bodied palate, with loads of fruit and big, velvety tannins. Goes on and on. Best ever from here. 2,500 cases made.

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.
