Il Poggione Brunello di Montalcino 2012, Tenuta Il Poggione

Italy / Tuscany

Andy's Tasting Notes

An excellent vintage in this area of Tuscany.  Il Poggione are a hugely respected and critically acclaimed producer who in this year (2012) have produced a Brunello of impeccable style, richness and freshness.  Lush plum, cherry, aromatic spice, herbs and violets.  Super stuff.

95+ Wine Advocate – “Il Poggione is a Brunello superstar and a vintage like this reveals every reason why that affirmation is true. From the second the 2012 Brunello di Montalcino pours into the glass, you know you are in for something special. The wine is darkly saturated and rich in appearance. Absent are those slightly amber or browning hues you often get with Sangiovese in a hot vintage. Nor does the wine show flat or tired characteristics. Instead, the quality of fruit is vibrant and rich. This is a healthy, generous and exuberant Brunello with dark density and succulent fruit flavors that are followed by integrated spice and tobacco. The balance is impressive and one thing you get here is fresh acidity. This is not to be underestimated, because the acidity quota in the 2012 vintage across the appellation is not as high or evident as usual. This is one of the year’s best Brunellos.”  M Larner, March 2017

17.5/20 Jancis Robinson – “Dark garnet. Intriguing mix of fresh veg and compost on the nose, plus a bit of charred meat. Round on the palate – already very suave, and very Brunello. Confident expression of the vintage’s combination of ripeness and freshness.” J Robinson, March 2017
