Il Poggione Winery
Il Poggione winery was established at the end of the 19th century by Lavinio Franceschi and is still owned today by the 5th generation of its founder, siblings Leopoldo and Livia Franceschi. Tenuta Il Poggione is one of the original three producers of Brunello di Montalcino. Il Poggione owns approximately 250 acres of vineyards in the Brunello di Montalcino zone.
Il Poggione Rosso di Montalcino 2011
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”.
Intense ruby red color. Fruity bouquet with red berry notes. Very well structured, mellow, long-lasting flavor with smooth, velvety tannins.

Il Poggione Vin Santo 500ml 2004
Typical traditional Tuscan wine produced from Trebbiano and Malvasia grapes, harvested then dried on straw mats in the old traditional way in order to increase the sugar concentration. After pressing, fermentation and slow aging (at least 5 years) take place in caratelli, 100 litre barrels, on the madre, a compound of yeast and bacteria residues kept from year to year which has a significant effect on the characteristics of the Vin Santo.
Amber hue; intense bouquet comprising notes of dried apricot, bitter almond and honey. Neither too sweet nor too dry and its good acidity make this a versatile wine to accompany many kinds of food.
