About Il Poggione 2012 Brunello di Montalcino

Brunello Il Poggione is a an Iconic wine. Every vintage it gets 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. 2012 is an oustanding vintage for Brunello with some of the great wines produced and this is one of them. The Wine Advocate scored it 95 points and said "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."
