International Wine Cellar | Rating: 94Saturated, bright deep red. Knockout perfumed nose offers redcurrant, sour cherry, menthol, licorice and minerals, with darker berry notes emerging with air. Superconcentrated, sweet and vivid, with chewy primary fruit flavors lifted by an element of candied rose. This full, extract-rich wine finishes with broad, serious, noble tannins, strong minerality and outstanding thrust and length. A pristine Brunello that should evolve slowly and enjoy a long life in bottle.Author: Stephen TanzerIssue: July/August 2011

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.
