What does this wine taste like?
An extremely elegant Brunello that will enchant us with its fragrance, balance and velvety texture. A wine that exhibits ripe fruit on the nose, leathery and tobacco notes, aromatic herbs and fine spices, and which caresses the palate and our senses. A wine with great balance, consistent on the nose and palate.

Wine critics reviewsReviews by Parker, Jancis Robinson, and Suckling
Highly critical acclaimed…
But… in my humble opinion this 2012 has slightly less fruit than the 2010 and is less vibrant and exuberant than the 2011. This said, it remains a top notch Brunello from a very good winemaker.
Ripe red fruit and aromas that improve with 20 minutes in the glass. Decant for added smoothness. Amazing wine should be enjoyed on its own..
Great wine from serious producer.fine to drink now but i put away bottles in the basement for further complexity, Worth waiting for
The usual Brunello stamp of black cherry, black currant and slightly floral. Added with some tobacco and spice in the background.
Very good choice
Comparing to the price this wine is very good pick. It has some sweet fruity aftertaste. We enjoyed it very much with lasagna.
The 2015 vintage was one of the most standard in history in Montalcino. A classic, excellent vintage, which led the grapes to perfect ripeness. And that has produced total harmony between acidity, which is solid and spicy, and full-body , thanks to the climatic constancy of the season. Poggione 2015 is therefore at the same time a more majestic and more cross-section Brunello. The aristocratic and long-lived class of Sangiovese combines beautifully with an enveloping structure that makes this bottle ready to be drunk immediately.
