Brunello is the prince of Montalcino wines, produced exclusively from Sangiovese grapes picked by hand from the oldest vines in the farm. After a careful fermentation at controlled temperature, Tenuta Il Poggione Brunello di Montalcino is aged for three years in French oak barrels. After being aged in wood, the wine is bottle aged: this is an essential process in guaranteeing the pleasantness and the complexity that have made the Brunello di Montalcino world-famous
(From 2001 Vintage) Ruby red with garnet hues. Intense, stylish bouquet with hints of berries and fruits. Smooth and elegant with polished tannins and an enduring finish.
