Brunello di Montalcino DOCG by Tenuta il Poggione from the Italian wine-growing region of Tuscany is an excellent, seductive and wonderfully complex red wine, made exclusively from Sangiovese grapes.
This wine shines in the glass in a dense ruby red with purple highlights. On the nose this red wine presents itself very intense, long lasting, with concentrated fruity notes of dark and red berries - especially blackberry and raspberry come to the fore - ripe sour cherries and finely underlaid by a spicy note with some tobacco. On the palate this Italian red wine starts very elegant, warm, balanced, with velvety soft tannins and a surprisingly fresh note. The tannins are very well integrated into the complex body and are accompanied by a balanced acidity structure. The finale offers a wonderful, persistent length.
This Brunello di Montalcino from Tenuta Il Poggione is convincing all along the line with its complex, great character and has a very good ageing potential.
