Italy - Tuscany - Brunello di Montalcino

Red Sangiovese
Producer Notes

Tenuta Il Poggione is one of Montalcino's major wineries. The estate's guiding principle is to pay meticulous attention to the vineyards, because they believe that the secret to producing great red wines lies in tending the vines. The estate has also drastically reduced the quantity of grapes it produces in recent years. By green harvesting, regularly monitoring the condition of the vineyards and... More »

This winery makes a delicious brunello. Its consistency throughout different vintages is impressive. Perfect ruby color, long legs, complex and balanced aroma of wild berries and beautifully velvety in the mouth. The tannins are now quite low and tell you the wine could still age longer. I opened it at a dinner party and was a crowd pleaser.

Very light and although it has a nice length, the fruit is not that present. Again with this brunello the tannins are masking the flavors and overall finish.

Hoping slightly off bottle. Super tannic, none of the usual brunello indicators

Take my comments with a grain of salt because I have grown weary of Sangovese wines, which were once my favorite. This wine has a great bouqet and taste of raspberries. It has a lighter body than most Brunellos, and is still a bit dry and tannic. It just doesn't fill the mouth like I like.

Truly characterized by both a balance of power and finesse. Decanted for 3+ hours, served with the pork loin and paired so terrifically with strong presence of fruit but never obnoxious or hot. Definitely got some coffee bean on the open, then dark fruits glide through to the finish. Approachable but after several hours of air and tannins still strong, this clearly has years to go.

Opaque, dark garnet with browning on the rim. Clean bouquet of dark fruit, floral notes and leather. Dry, intense palate of red and black fruits, earth notes and leather again. Full bodied, long finish with structured tannins still in place. A good value Brunello with quite a bit of time left it would seem.

Deep red in color. Raspberry and tobacco nose. Red fruit on the palate, vibrant with acidity that makes the mouth water. Great wine. Second time in 6 months tasting it and both left me wanting more. This thing will improve overtime, but it is a blast right now too.

Needs at least 8 hours of air to blow off the grapiness. Very nice soy, leather, cassis and spice notes. Great brunello.

The 2004 Brunello di Montalcino is awesome. This finessed, regal Brunello flows onto the palate with seamless layers of perfumed fruit framed by silky, finessed tannins. The wine remains extremely primary at this stage, and its full range of aromas and flavors have yet to emerge, but the sheer pedigree of this Brunello is unmistakable. The elegant, refined finish lasts an eternity, and subtle notes of menthol, spices, licorice and leather add final notes of complexity. The estate’s 2004 Brunello is a wine to buy and bury in the deepest corner of the cellar. Brunello is never inexpensive, but this is the real deal, and in relative terms, it is one of the world’s great values in fine, cellar worthy wine. Incredibly, there are 18,000+ cases of the 2004 Brunello, so it should be fairly easy to source in various markets. The Brunello is made from four vineyards ranging from 250 to 400 meters in altitude, all in Sant’Angelo in Colle. The wines from the various vineyards were aged separately in French oak casks prior to being assembled and bottled. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2034. I was completely blown away by the wines I tasted from Il Poggione this year. Readers who want to experience first-class Sangiovese from Montalcino won’t want to miss these exceptional wines. Winemaker Fabrizio Bindocci and his team have done an exceptional job for which they deserve all the praise in the world.

Dark ruby red. Youthful and tight. Dense nose with dried cherry fruit and herbs. Elegant, fine tannins with rich refined flavours of leather, tar, iron and spicy oak. Sweet red fruits and a hint of smoke in the long finish.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
