Last month, owner of Il Poggione, Leopoldo Franceschi, celebrated his 50th birthday in style at the winery: over 300 invitees attended, including some of Italy’s top journalists and winemakers. A good time was had by all.
Il Poggione’s Super Tuscan "San Leopoldo" is named after count Leopoldo’s ancestor. It is made from 50% Sangiovese, and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon and 25% Cabernet Franc.
Dinner was served in Il Poggione’s state-of-the-art cellar, surrounded by Brunello.
Happy birthday Leopoldo!
