    Winemaker's Notes:

    A beautiful Brunello made in the traditional style, produced exclusively from Sangiovese grapes picked by hand from vines at least 20 years old. A wine with big character, great balance and elegance.

    The wine's color is ruby red with garnet hues.

    The nose is elegant, calibrated and complex with notes of cherry, raspberry, burnt wood, and licorice.

    It impetuously invades the mouth with full body and seamless tannins and acidity. The finish is long and shows an excellent freshness that balances the alcohol that is naturally present and connected to the southern exposure of the estate's vineyards.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino is another superb Brunello from Il Poggione. The ripeness of the vintage meets a classic sense of structure as this bold, full-bodied wine takes shape in the glass. The 2006 doesn’t have the elegance or finesse of the 2004, instead it offers a decidedly more virile, masculine expression of Sangiovese. Dark cherries, tobacco, smoke and underbrush wrap around a wall of tannin as the finish builds to a majestic close. Il Poggione’s Brunello remains one of the best values in fine, cellar-worthy wine. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2036.

    Saturated, bright deep red. Knockout perfumed nose offers redcurrant, sour cherry, menthol, licorice and minerals, with darker berry notes emerging with air. Superconcentrated, sweet and vivid, with chewy primary fruit flavors lifted by an element of candied rose. This full, extract-rich wine finishes with broad, serious, noble tannins, strong minerality and outstanding thrust and length. A pristine Brunello that should evolve slowly and enjoy a long life in bottle.

    International Wine Cellar

    A fresh, elegant style, featuring cherry, blackberry and spice aromas and flavors, with a vibrant structure and well-integrated tannins. This hangs together beautifully through the long finish, which echoes fruit and tobacco. Best from 2013 through 2025.

    Wine Spectator

    Thanks to 36 months of careful oak aging, this hearty Brunello opens with a dark, inky color, deep extraction and intense aromas of black cherry, chocolate, rum cake, cinnamon, mesquite and wet stone. Pair it with hand-made pasta and shaved black truffles.

    Very good wine. We let it decant for a bit. We paired it with Rabbit Ragu and Sage Polenta. Went well with that meal
