Intense ruby red colour. Fruity bouquet with red berry notes. Very well structured, mellow, long-lasting flavour with smooth, velvety tannins

Il Poggione’s 2011 Rosso di Montalcino bursts from the glass with intense, layered fruit. A big, voluptuous wine, the 2011 stands out for its generous, utterly inviting personality. Hints of spices and rose petals add complexity, but in the end in 2011 the Rosso is a wine mostly of juicy, textural impact. The estate’s Rosso is made from the estate’s youngest vines and lower-altitude vineyards. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2021.

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”.

Food pairing
pasta with meat sauce, roasted and grilled meats, medium strength cheeses.
