Bottle report: Excellent condition.

Il Poggione, which dates back to the late 1800s, is now under the father and son winemaking team of Fabrizio and Alessandro Bindocci, who manage a wonderfully unique terroir below the beautiful hilltop town of Sant’Angelo in Colle. This wonderfully sited vineyard benefits from a temperate microclimate that allows the grapes to retain freshness and extends ripening. 

Ageing takes place in large oak casks, which allows for subtle oak flavours, rather than dominating this great full-bodied, powerful Brunello style - a benchmark wine.

”...built on a serious spine of formidable tannin and dark red/black fruit. Hints of tar, licorice, rose petals and tobacco inform the powerful, virile finish. … a jewel of a wine, even at this early stage. It’s hard to know where to start with these new releases from Il Poggione, as every wine I tasted was strikingly beautiful. This is a great showing from father and son team Fabrizio and Alessandro Bindocci. Il Poggione’s Brunello di Montalcino remains one of the most fairly priced, ageworthy wines on the planet.” eRobertParker.com
