Product description

Produced exclusively from 100% Sangiovese grapes picked by hand from 20-year-old vines, this wine is matured for three years in French oak barrels and bottle-aged. It is ruby red with garnet undertones, and an intense, persistent aroma of red fruits, marasca cherries, leather, spices, and vanilla. The texture is structured and full-bodied, with an excellent freshness and balance.

96 Points - Jeb Dunnuck    Located in Sant’Angelo in Colle, the 2016 Brunello was aged for over 30 months in large French oak. The nose is exuberant with confectionary aromatics of kirsch, sweet herbs and lavender. The palate is energetic and fresh, with bright cherry fruit and oolong tea. This is a polished style with focus and clarity that lends itself to enjoyment in drinking these now, though this will not be one that tires easily. Enjoy 2022-2036.

96 Points - Wine Spectator    This Brunello leads with black cherry, black currant and violet aromas, augmented by flavors of iron, tobacco and spice. Dusty tannins emerge on the lingering finish, while the sweet fruit persists. Should be compelling in a decade. Best from 2025 through 2047.

96 Points - Decanter    Fresh minty nose with notes of morello cherries, clove and leather and hints of pencil shavings. Crunchy acidity on the palate with a very long finish.

95 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate    The Il Poggione 2016 Brunello di Montalcino opens to a medium dark appearance with pretty Sangiovese shine and a little ruby sparkle. This vintage shows a slightly untamed or wild side with a dense and heavier fruit profile. The focus here is on blackberry, dried cherry, tobacco and even a touch of smoky tobacco or horse saddle. The wine shows the firm grip and tannic backbone that is a common trait in this vintage, especially with the vineyards on this southern, sunlit side of the appellation. I also get a considerable flash of acidity on the close, almost too much, that certainly needs a few more years to soften. You really need to wait with this one.

93 Points - Wine Enthusiast    Camphor, new leather, underbrush and blue-flower aromas mingle together in the glass along with a whiff of toasted nut. On the firmly structured palate, assertive, close-grained tannin's and an acidic backbone accompany dried cherry, licorice and tobacco. Drink 2026–2036.
