        Background

        Il Poggione, the century-old Italian wine label was the first to bring out the uniqueness of the wines of the Montalcino area during as early as the 1900s. Over a century ago, when a French land owner, Lavino Franceschi visited Montalcino and he was so impressed with the geographical advantage and the natural extravaganza of this place that he decided to start his wine label from here. The Il Poggione Winery was established during 2004 and it is built right in the centre of the estate. The architecture and processes followed in this winery are perfect blends of ancient tradition and modern technology. Temperature-controlled techniques, indigenous yeasts, stainless steel tanks and submerged-cap system are some principles followed here to retain the colour and flavour of the fruits.

        Tasting notes

        Medium-bodied with lovely rounded vine-ripened red fruit characters of cherries, blackberries, and a hint of spice. aged for one year in oak barrels which imparts a subtle vanilla note to the wine. On the palate, it is smooth and velvety, with a bright acidity that keeps the wine fresh and lively.

        Winemaking

        This wine is made exclusively from Sangiovese grapes, the same variety used for Brunello di Montalcino, which are harvested by hand in ten year-old vineyards on the property. Part of the wine ages for 12 months in medium-sized Allier oak barrels, and the rest in barriques. The wine completes its maturation period in bottles for 6-9 months before it is released.

        Food pairings

        Pasta dishes to hearty meat dishes like lamb and beef. Also beautiful with a Margherita pizza.
