    Winemaker's Notes:

    Younger and more accessible version of Brunello, Il Poggione Rosso di Montalcino is made with carefully selected Sangiovese grapes handpicked from the youngest of estate vines that are at least 15 years old. A "baby Brunello".

    This wine has a ruby red color and a nose of wild berry fruit. Velvety and rich on the palate, with great structure and smooth, rounded tannins.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2007 Rosso di Montalcino is a soft, floral wine with pretty red fruits that meld into tobacco, spices and minerals. The wine possesses lovely inner perfume to match its accessible personality. The 2007 is a relatively open vintage for the Rosso, and while I don’t see this vintage making old bones, it should offer highly pleasurable drinking over the next few years at a minimum. In 2007 Bindocci decided to de-stem 70% of the fruit, which yielded an especially soft, approachable wine. Because Rosso is a wine generally made for near-term consumption, its hard to argue with that approach, especially in this economy. Still I miss the firmer style of Rosso the house is capable of. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2017.

    Medium bright red. Light red berry and plum aromas with a whiff of flint on the nose. Sweet and poised, showing impressive delicacy to the redcurrant and plum flavors. This impeccably balanced Rosso has a pretty, straightforward, moderately long, mineral-driven finish. Today I don't find quite the depth and concentration I would have expected given the quality of this estate and its wines, but my sample picked up considerable volume and flesh with air. As the wines from Il Poggione usually improve with a little bottle aging, I'll give this one the benefit of the doubt.
