This is a great wine from a great producer in a great vintage. Tenuta Il Poggione (say Eel Podge-OH-nay) was established in the late 1800s by Florentine landowner Lavinio Franceschi, and today the large estate is comprised of vines and olive trees. Planted at altitudes of 490-1,475 metres, the vines provide well-balanced grapes with the potential to make extremely long-lived wines for which Montalcino is so famous. Made from 100% Sangiovese (Brunello is made from a very specific clone unique to the rolling hills of Montalcino), and aged for three years in French oak casks, it shows Sangiovese’s tell-tale aromas of plums, cherries, leather and spice, with the classic Tuscan balance between ripe fruit, bright acidity and assertive tannins. Powerfully structured it can be aged for decades, or enjoy it now after an hour’s rest in a decanter. Rated a five-star vintage, 2012 was hot and dry, imbuing wines with dense, rich fruit, and ripe, monster tannins. A pre-eminent Italian expert and critic has called Il Poggione Brunello one of the most fairly priced great wines on the planet.
