Il Poggione is featured at length as one of the original producers of Brunello di Montalcino, with the Franceschi family having worked the vineyards for over a century. Fodera recommends the 2009 Il Poggione Brunello di Montalcino with a 91-pt score and these tasting notes:
“Full bodied on the palate with lively ripe fruit and elegant refined tannins, the wild cherry flavors are persistent and backed by lots of fresh acidity that provides graceful structure. Deftly crafted.”
