Tasting Notes: Intense ruby red in color, this Brunelllo has an elegant nose, characterized by red fruits, black cherry and underwood, framed by notes of red flower potpourri, eucalyptus, cedar wood, leather and licorice. Its full body on the palate is supported by well extracted tannins and a beautiful freshness: tangible signs of a wine with long aging potential.
About the Winery: Il Poggione was one of the first wineries to market the Brunello di Montalcino wine as early as the 1900’s, and one of the founding members of the Brunello di Montalcino Consortium.
Serving Suggestions: Red meats, game and mature cheeses.
