Il Poggione are making fabulous Brunello, and what's even more amazing is that there prices are some of the lowest around. W have been selling the wines for over 10 years, and in the last few releases quality has really gone up an extra notch, that combined with some great vintages make these a terrific cellaring opportunity. We have just taken delivery of some of their outstanding Riserva from the legendary 2010 vintage, which is quite simply stunning and shows great aging potential.
Il Poggione Brunello di Montalcino 2011
"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." 95 points Monica Larner Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Il Poggione Brunello di Montalcino Riserva 'Vigna Paganelli' 2010
"The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Vigna Paganelli is a phenomenal achievement and a wine that captures not only the spirit of this classic vintage, but the true essence of an age-worthy wine like Brunello. This single vineyard Riserva is sharp, pristine and immaculate. It starts slow and shy, but then blossoms to beautiful intensity and aromatic brilliance. It delivers a very authentic and genuine read of Sangiovese with wild berry aromas followed by pressed violets, wet earth, tobacco and lightly toasted spice. The bouquet is seamless and very long in persistence. The same holds true for the mouthfeel. The wine delivers a fine and silky texture with a good dose of power and personality at the rear." 98+ Monica Larner-Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
