Tasting notes
Ruby red tending to garnet, very intense, persistent nose with red fruit notes. Warm, balanced flavour with velvet-smooth tannins. Long-lasting aroma.

Good deep red. Sexy nose offers raspberry, spices, coconut, dried flowers, tobacco and potpourri: almost Lafite-like. Then suave, complex and energetic in the mouth, offering lovely vinosity to the sappy red fruit and floral flavors. Finishes long and vibrant, combining enticing sweetness and firm, saline grip. Really spreads out horizontally on the back.

Wine maker notes
Brunello is the prince of Montalcino wines, produced exclusively from Sangiovese grapes picked by hand from vines at least 20 years old. After careful fermentation at controlled temperatures, Tenuta Il Poggione Brunello di Montalcino is matured for 3 years in French oak barrels. After being aged in wood, the wine is bottle aged for a time, an essential process in guaranteeing the pleasing quality and complex attributes that have made this wine world-famous.

Food pairing
Red meats, game, mature cheeses.
