IL POGGIONE
Brunello di Montalcino Reserva DOCG 2012 2012

TASTING NOTES

"Il Poggione is a Brunello superstar and a vintage like this reveals every reason why that affirmation is true…The balance is impressive and one thing you get here is fresh acidity. This is not to be underestimated, because the acidity quota in the 2012 vintage across the appellation is not as high or evident as usual. This is one of the year's best Brunellos.” Robert Parker 95pt

IL POGGIONE

The story of Tenuta Il Poggione – the estate as we know it today – began at the end of the 19th century. It tells of Lavinio Franceschi, a landowner from Scandicci, on the hills that rise above Florence.He found his visit so interesting and the scenery so majestic that he decided to buy land there. His subsequent management, modern business approach and enterprise marked the end of what until then had still been almost mediaeval agricultural methods in the region. New Sangiovese clones were selected, better adapted to producing good quality grapes, and new vineyards were planted in the most suitable terroirs, with a view to producing high-class wines. The company also built a new winery, complete with the most up-to-date technology available at the time, but without losing sight of tradition or the characteristics of the local product. 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 unflagging passion, combining the ancient skills of winemaking crafts and tradition with the latest, most progressive techniques.
