AG 91+ WS 90 Pts - According to Antonio Galloni - "The 2012 Rosso di Montalcino bursts from the glass with sweet red cherries, raspberries and pomegranate. Rich, layered and intense to the core, the 2012 captures the essence of a year in which both dry extracts and acidities are high. Readers looking for value, will adore the Rosso, a wine that also happens to be one my personal favorites. The 2012 is another fabulous edition for this perennial overachiever. Even though the 2012 is delicious right now, I would be tempted to give it further time in bottle."
According to Wine Spectator - "A fine Rosso, with cherry, floral, tobacco and spice flavors imparting harmony and grace. The lively acidity and refined tannins frame the flavors. Lingering finish. Drink now through 2020."
Winemakers Notes - "Il Poggione is one of the most highly regarded Brunello di Montalcino producers with a rich history and reputation for stylistic consistency. Intense ruby red color. Fruity bouquet with red berry notes. Very well structured, mellow, long lasting flavor with smooth, velvety tannins."100% Sangiovese. 14.5% ABV.
