Roll up your sleeves and do some home cooking for this Il Poggione Brunello di Montalcino, winelovers. It deserves it... You'll want to go the meaty and/or game-oriented route. The absolutley delicious and flavorful body of this wine is made for a big bowl of Tuscan sausage and beans to be shared family style. Or maybe a rosemary roast leg of lamb for Sunday dinner. A boar or duck ragu tossed with papardelle will pair seamlessly with the rich, concentrated side of the wine too. Don't end the meal too soon, though. Pour another glass and nibble on chunks of aged Parmigiana Reggiano and some toasted walnuts. That ought to wrap things up nicely. Cincin!

Robert Parker, Jr's Wine Advocate: "The Il Poggione 2015 Brunello di Montalcino shows a darker and more concentrated appearance than many of its peers. The wine is beautifully abundant and fragrant in the most exuberant and expressive manner. You will recognize aromas of moist soil, tobacco and smoke. Candied cherry hovers over the entire bouquet. Fruit is sourced from older vines (all over 25 years old). Il Poggione occupies a special spot within the Montalcino appellation, and the area always produces slightly more concentrated and powerful wines. I find that to be particularly true in this gorgeous 2015 vintage. I am also very attracted to that almost dusty note of crushed mineral that rides long on the full-bodied finish. Il Poggione's Brunello is also distinguished by firm, youthful tannin that need a few more years to unwind. Luckily, there are quite a few bottles to go around. Drink 2021-2045." Jan 2020

Winery: "Ruby red in colour, with a very intense, persistent nose and with red fruit notes. Warm, balanced flavour with velvet-smooth tannins. Long-lasting aroma.
Food Pairings: Red meats, game, mature cheeses."
