Il Poggione’s history dates back to the late 1800s, when it was one of three original producers in Brunello di Montalcino. The winery’s property is split amongst its vineyard, olive trees, grain fields, forest and livestock. Despite its diverse focus, Il Poggione takes great care with its vines, which are located close to the town of Sant’Angelo. The traditional approach taken by winemakers keeps the winery true to its heritage, using stainless steel and French casks that fully express the Brunello di Montalcino terroir. Leopoldo and Livia are the successors to Lavinio Franceschi’s legacy, and their passion resembles that of their predecessor. They have followed a sustainable formula for winemaking, and have even introduced solar panels to aid in these efforts.
