Il Poggione is a winery steeped in history with its origins dating back to the late 1800s. Owned by Leopoldo and Livia Franceschi , it is situated below the beautiful hilltop town of Sant’Angelo in Colle, a part of the Brunello di Montalcino appellation characterised by a temperate, yet well-ventilated micro-climate. This benefits the grapes by maintaining refreshing acidity levels and extending their ripening time.
In the best vintages the wines demonstrate extraordinary development in bottle. Even better, prices have remained very reasonable, considering the superb quality of the wine. Poggione’s straight Brunello is one of the most fairly-priced, cellar worthy wines of the appellation. This is a benchmark property for fine, traditionally made Brunello capable of ageing superbly.

GALLONI-92pts -Il Poggione's 2009 Brunello di Montalcino is a bit of a bruiser today, but it is also one of the few 2009s that is built for the cellar. Smoke, new leather, liquorice, spices, scorched earth all wrap around the palate in a dark, voluptuous Brunello with plenty of intrigue. This is one of the richer, more intense wines of the year, but all the elements are very nicely balanced.

WA- 90/100pts- The 2009 Brunello di Montalcino is a supple and immediately inviting Brunello that is packed tight with ripe fruit and jammy background notes of sun-drenched raspberry and strawberry. I also made note of the alcohol in my tasting note that I later saw registered at 14.5%. The wine picks up momentum in the mouth where it boasts impressive and compelling textural richness. I am an enthusiastic admirer of Il Poggione’s 2008 and 2006 Brunellos, but 2007 and 2009 both seem riper and more immediate. It will be interesting to see how it fleshes out over time.
