Tanzer scores Il Poggione 93 points


We are very happy to see that other critics are also giving to our wines good scores for the 2004 vintage. As we have always maintained, we feel that the higher altitudes, southwestern location, and the age of our vines at more than 40 years in some vineyards, allows us to make very good wines, wines that mirror the terroir of Sant'Angelo in Colle, even when there was hot temperatures in the spring like there was in May 2004. Thank you, Mr. Tanzer. We are glad that you enjoy our Il Poggione Brunello di Montalcino! 

Il Poggione 2004 Brunello di Montalcino

Good deep red.  Sexy nose offers raspberry, spices, coconute, dried flowers, tobacco and potpourri: almost Lafite-like.  Then suave, complex and energetic in the mouth, offering lovely vinosity to the sappy red fruit and floral flavors.  Finishes long and vibrant, combining enticing sweetness and firm, saline grip.  Really spreads out horizontally on the back. 93 Points
