Il Poggione Rosso di Montalcino 2015

SKU 113258


Younger, more accessible version of the Brunello, but already with an excellent structure and a great personality, Rosso di Montalcino is a very important wine for Tenuta Il Poggione. Produced entirely from Sangiovese grapes, sourced in the estate's younger vineyards, Rosso di Montalcino is aged for 12 months in large casks before a period of bottle aging. The wood aging, although not obligatory for the production of Rosso di Montalcino, tones down the tannins typical of a young Sangiovese and gives this red wine a complexity of aroma and structure that make it a great "Young Brunello". Tasting Notes: Intense ruby red colour. Fruity bouquet with red berry notes. Very well structured, yet soft, long-lasting flavour with smooth, velvety tannins. Food Pairings: Pasta with meat sauce, roasted, grilled meats and medium strength cheeses.

Wine EnthusiastUnderbrush, red berry and clove aromas carry over to the linear palate, which is steeped in espresso flavor. While it's already accessible, fine-grained tannins give it a firm structure. Drink through 2020.
