Buy Il Poggione Rosso di Montalcino
Intense ruby red colour. Fruity bouquet with red berry notes. Very well structured, mellow, long-lasting flavour with smooth, velvety tannins
Vinous 89 points - Il Poggione’s 2014 Rosso di Montalcino is classy, polished and refined. Sweet tobacco, licorice, smoke and dark spices add layers of nuance to a core of silky dark fruit in a perfumed, slender Rosso that will drink well for the next handful of years. This is one of the better 2014 Rossos I have tasted so far. The 2014 was aged mostly in cask, with the addition of around 20% French oak.  (Feb 2016)

Wine maker notes
Younger, more accessible version of Brunello, but already very well-developed with a strong character, Rosso di Montalcino is a very important wine for Tenuta Il Poggione. Produced entirely from Sangiovese grapes from the youngest of the estate’s vineyards, Rosso di Montalcino is matured for 12 months in large barrels before undergoing a period of bottle aging. Aging in wood, though not obligatory for the production of Rosso di Montalcino, tones down the tannins typical of a young Sangiovese and gives this red wine the complex aroma and body that make it a great “young Brunello”.
