Product description
One of Tuscany's most highly regarded wineries, Tenuta Il Poggione makes compelling wines for collectors and everyday drinkers alike. Intense ruby red in appearance. Layered aromas of red fruit, savoury spices and leather notes. The tannins are silky, and the fruit comes back in multiple layers. Its long finish confirms that this wine is ready to drink now but can be enjoyed for 20 years or more.

This single-vineyard Riserva delivers a generous, abundant and determined personality. The 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Vigna Paganelli benefits from a warm, sun-soaked microclimate shielded from cold winter winds. You can taste the grapes' excellent health thanks to the unmistakable aromas of black cherry, plum, tar, campfire ash and chalky mineral. 

95 Points - Jeb Dunnuck    
Vigna Paganelli is the estate's oldest vineyard, planted in 1964, and the wine was aged for over 40 months in large French oak of various sizes. The 2015 Vigna Paganelli Riserva is rich with cola aromatics, liquorice, and black cherry. There is a concentrated core of fruit with vanilla and cedar. The structure is persistent with grippy tannins and acidity that perseveres through the darkness of the fruit. This is an elegant wine that will need time to unravel and soften.

95 Points - Wine Spectator    
This red is subtle and laced with cherry, plum and floral notes, backed by vibrant acidity. Earth and tobacco accents add depth. It took a few moments of aeration to shake off the cobwebs, and this isn't an expressive style, but it has its appeal. It will need time to absorb the substantial tannins.

93 Points - Wine Enthusiast   
Baked plum, new leather, camphor, and scorched earth aromas waft out of the glass on this powerfully built red. Full-bodied and concentrated, the dense palate delivers cherry marinated in spirits, prune, licorice and tobacco framed in tightly knit, close-grained tannins. You'll also notice the heat of evident alcohol on the close, but the ripe fruit supports it.
