Il Poggione Rosso di Montalcino 2011 750ml

Il Poggione Rosso di Montalcino

Intense ruby red. Fruity bouquet with red berry notes. Very well structured, mellow, long-lasting flavor with smooth, velvety tannins. Younger, more accessible version of Brunello, but already very well-developed with a strong character, Rosso di Montalcino is a very important wine for Tenuta Il Poggione. Produced entirely from Sangiovese grapes from the youngest of the estate's vineyards, Rosso di Montalcino is matured for 12 months in large barrels before undergoing a period of bottle aging. Some have called this a "Baby Brunello".
