Il Poggione Rosso di Montalcino 2011

Il Poggione Rosso di Montalcino 750ML 2011      
Sku: 12413

Il Poggione Rosso di Montalcino is made with carefully selected Sangiovese grapes handpicked from estate vines that are at least 15 years old. Ruby red in color, this wine shows an intense bouquet of wild berry fruit. The palate is velvety and rich, with great structure and smooth, rounded tannins. A “baby Brunello”.

Tasting notes
Intense ruby red colour. Fruity bouquet with red berry notes. Very well structured, mellow, long-lasting flavour with smooth, velvety tannins

Rating
"Il Poggione’s 2011 Rosso di Montalcino bursts fromthe glass with intense, layered fruit. A big, voluptuous wine, the 2011 stands out for its generous, utterly inviting personality. Hints of spices and rose petals add complexity, but in the end in 2011 the Rosso is a wine mostly of juicy, textural impact." The Wine Advocate - 91pts
