Il Poggione has done a terrific job with its 2011 Brunello di Montalcino. The wine is soft, yielding and charged with a velvety and smooth texture. It is deeply redolent of dark berry, black cherry, spice, leather and tobacco. The wine's sunny personality never feels flat or too dense. In fact, the wine offers a very tight and steely backbone that gives the wine stature and strength. This is one of my favorite Brunellos from the 2011 vintage.

Tasting note


This 2017 vintage from the esteemed region of Brunello di Montalcino is a testament to the elegance and complexity of Sangiovese. With a rich tapestry of mulberry fruit interwoven with toasty, spicy, and earthy notes, this wine captivates the senses. The palate is greeted with mouth-watering acidity that balances the bitter tannins, leading to a savory experience of concentrated bitter licorice fruit, roasted herbs, and a spicy undertone. Mature red fruits emerge, adding depth to the medium-bodied profile, while the tannic grip ensures a long, drying, and intricate finish. Aged in French oak barrels, this wine has developed a velvety texture that promises to evolve beautifully.
