About This Wine
Introducing the Il Poggione Brunello di Montalcino 2017, a top-notch wine from the renowned region of Montalcino in Tuscany, Italy. Made from 100% Sangiovese grapes hand-picked from the oldest vines on the farm, this wine is the epitome of quality and craftsmanship. The Brunello di Montalcino is known for its elegance and complexity, and the 2017 vintage is no exception.

With a ruby red color and intense, persistent nose, the Il Poggione Brunello di Montalcino 2017 boasts notes of red fruits and a warm, balanced flavor with velvety tannins. The wine is aged in oak barrels followed by a long period of bottle aging, giving it a refined and elegant taste.

The wine is full-bodied and structured, with underbrush, camphor, and new leather aromas that complement the flavors of dark cherry and plum. The tannins are firm and compact, providing a nice balance to the sweet, ripe cherry, blackberry, and plum fruit flavors. The wine has a long-lasting aroma and is perfect for pairing with red meats, game, and aged cheeses.

The Il Poggione Brunello di Montalcino 2017 is a wine that is perfect for aging, as it will only get better with time. The winemaker, Fabrizio Bindocci, removed a small percentage of seeds at the beginning of fermentation, ensuring that the tannins are not unripe, making it a heady mix of allspice, leather, and prune plums. This wine has ample concentration on the palate, a zesty citrus note, and is grippy but overall balanced.

95 POINTS - "Underbrush, camphor and new leather aromas get together with grilled herbs. Full-bodied and structured, it also shows restraint, featuring dried black cherry, licorice and tobacco alongside firm, fine-grained tannins." - Wine Enthusiast

94 POINTS - "The 2017 Brunello di Montalcino opens to a saturated and shiny dark ruby color. This edition is loaded with black and purple fruits, such as blackberry preserves and plum. Those more robust tones are followed by spice, tar and campfire ash. The tannins are young (but not stemmy or bitter), and you'd be best served by letting this wine age and relax with more cellar aging. Il Poggione always makes some of the smoothest and most texturally enriched wines in the appellation, and this vintage is no exception." - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

94 POINTS - "Rich flavors of dark cherry and plum glide in a smooth texture, gaining notes of dark chocolate and licorice as the wine sits in the glass. The tannins are firm and compact, like new leather, yet the generous fruit tones are already expressive, supported by a cool mineral layer and vivid acidity that keep the flavors fresh over several days. This is a refined and elegant Brunello from the warm 2017 vintage, with plenty of aging potential." - Wine & Spirits

93 POINTS - "Sweet, ripe cherry, blackberry and plum fruit flavors are framed by mineral, tobacco and thyme accents in this vibrant, balanced red. Make no mistake, there are ample tannins too, yet this still finds a nice equilibrium on the lingering finish." - Wine Spectator

91 POINTS - "Blackberry, blueberry, stone and floral aromas. Hints of cedar, too. Full-bodied and chewy with polish and focus. Dried berries and hints of meat. This shows the ripeness of the grapes. Chewy at the end. Needs time to soften. Better after 2023." - James Suckling

91 POINTS - "Il Poggione started harvesting Brunello grapes on 1 September based on desired sugar and acidity levels. To curtail unripe tannins, winemaker Fabrizio Bindocci removed a small percentage of seeds at the beginning of fermentation, particularly from the earliest picked plots. The resulting wine is a heady mix of allspice, leather and prune plums. There is ample concentration on the palate and a zesty citrus note lends freshness. It's grippy but overall balanced, with just a touch of astringency nudging through. I’d give this another year to come together." - Decanter
Brunello is the prince of Montalcino wines, produced exclusively from Sangiovese grapes picked by hand from the oldest vines in the farm. 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. Ruby red in color, with a very intense, persistent nose and with red fruit notes. Warm, balanced flavour with velvet-smooth tannins. Long-lasting aroma.
