Brunello Il Poggione is a an Iconic wine. Every vintage it get's top ratings and rave reviews. Sourcing from their 20 year old vines, the Franceschi family carefully ferments and then ages the Sangiovese Grosso for 3 years in French oak barrels. The 2007 scored 94 from James Suckling, 95 from Steve Tanzer and 95 frOm the Wine Advocate who said "The estate’s 2007 Brunello di Montalcino has developed beautifully over the last year. Freshly cut flowers, dark raspberries, spices and mint all take shape in a 2007 that impresses for its freshness and pure energy. Sweet roses and violets linger on the finish. I imagine the 2007 will enjoy a very broad drinking window. Today it is drop-dead gorgeous. The combination of dry extract above 34 and acidity north of 6% is exceedingly rare and suggests the wine will age for several decades. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2047." Don't miss it!
