The excitment of Benvenuto Brunello is passing, but we are grateful for all the wonderful people sharing their thoughts of Il Poggione wines. Among those reviews are those from Antonio Galloni at Vinous Media. Read on for his individual reviews of our current and upcoming releases.
“Il Poggione shows why it is one of the top estates in Montalcino with these new releases. Both 2014 Rossos and the 2011 Brunello are terrific. Fabrizio and Alessandro Bindocci describe 2011 as a tough year because of the intense summer heat. There will be no Riserva in 2011, while production of the straight Brunello is around 150,000 bottles, down significantly from 230,000 that were made in 2010. The Brunellos are made with submerged-cap fermentation and spend three years in large French oak, with the Riserva seeing an additional year in cask.” – Antonio GalloniRead more >
