Il Poggione Rosso di Montalcino 2020
Region: Rosso di Montalcino, Tuscany, Italy
Bottle size: 75cl
Rosso is the lighter, less aged wine from the clone of Sangiovese known as Brunello and this is lovely: concentrated and elegant, with black cherry, blackcurrant and soft-serve vanilla on the nose, with coffee and black fruit in the mouth.
Il Poggione was one of the first wineries to market the Brunello di Montalcino wine as early as the 1900’s, and one of the founding members of the Brunello di Montalcino Consortium.
After more than a Century, Lavinio Franceschi’s work is still a fundamental point of reference for his successors, Leopoldo and Livia, who continue to develop the business with that same dedication and unrelenting passion, combining the ancient skills of winemaking crafts and tradition with the latest, most innovative techniques.
