Tasting Old Vintage of the Rosso di Montalcino by the Tenuta del Poggione

Rosso dei vigneti di brunello
A few weeks ago, we have tasted some great old vintages of Rosso di Montalcino as we prepare for a tasting that we will do soon. The beauty of working for a historical estate like the Tenuta Il Poggione is that of being able to count on an archive of bottles conswerved in the best possible ways and to be able to taste them and to appreciate the longevity and the class of the Sangiovese even in a wine like Rosso di Montalcino. 

Tasting different vintages side-by-side permits us to see how the style of the estate has remained unaltered in time, in the name of the tradition and the quality. It was also interesting to taste the vintage 1982 which, besides being the year of my birth, is the year in which this wine has changed its name from Vino Rosso dai Vigneti di Brunello to Rosso di Montlacino, to then become DOC a year later, in the 1983.
