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 in large casks and barriques 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".
There’s plenty of nutmeg and dried-herb character in addition to redcurrants and Chinese spices. Medium body, lovely and grippy tannins and a tight finish. So well-crafted.
Pure, fruity and elegant, featuring cherry, plum, currant and iron aromas and flavors. Well-structured, yet balanced, with a lingering, fresh aftertaste of fruit, iron and leather notes. Drink now through 2024. 16,666 cases made.
The 2016 Rosso di Montalcino is a charming little Rosso that has classic Sangiovese Black cherry fruit as well as ample leafy herbs, earth, and even some forest floor notes. It's even better on the palate where is shows ample sweet fruit, a rounded texture, and surprising depth and richness. Drink this total charmer anytime over the coming 2-4 years.
The 2016 Rosso di Montalcino is packed tight with bold cherry fruit and blueberry. The wine's color is dark, almost purple, and the aromas are vinous and raw. The bouquet here offers a very direct and immediate quality of fruit, and you can absolutely taste the skins, pulp and seeds of the grape. That taste profile brings you straight inside the Sangiovese berry. All that tonic freshness and fruitiness just calls out for a steaming plate of fettuccine with wild porcini mushrooms piled high on top.
