Description

Pure, fruity and elegant, featuring cherry, plum, currant and iron aromas and flavors. Well-structured, yet balanced, with a lingering, fresh aftertaste of fruit, iron and leather notes. Drink now through 2024. 16,666 cases made. - WS91

There’s plenty of nutmeg and dried-herb character in addition to redcurrants and Chinese spices. Medium body, lovely and grippy tannins and a tight finish. So well-crafted.- JS92

The 2016 Rosso di Montalcino is packed tight with bold cherry fruit and blueberry. The wine's color is dark, almost purple, and the aromas are vinous and raw. The bouquet here offers a very direct and immediate quality of fruit, and you can absolutely taste the skins, pulp and seeds of the grape. That taste profile brings you straight inside the Sangiovese berry. All that tonic freshness and fruitiness just calls out for a steaming plate of fettuccine with wild porcini mushrooms piled high on top. - Monica Larner, - WA88

The Winery

The Il Poggione estate has been in existence since 1890, and has been owned by the Franceschi family since 1900. The company’s winemaking operations are supervised by Dottore Piero Talenti, who imposes a meticulous three-part selection process – first in the vineyards, second after pressing, and again after fermentation. Piero’s attention to detail in the winemaking process has resulted in the acclaimed Brunellos for which Il Piggione is renowned.

An interesting, complex, red-fruited nose. There's a hint of mint to the reserved fruit that darkens with the smelling of it. I even located a dab of violet. The palate is rich, dark and dense and very lovely. Tannin...
