Reviews van Geografico Vernaccia di San Gimignano 2018
This is one of the absolute top wines from Montalcino from the Tenuta Il Poggione domain. The grapes for this Brunello come from the very best vineyards of Tenuta Il Poggione from vines that are 25 - 40 years old. Il Poggione only makes its Brunello in the great wine years.
The Sangiovese Grosso grapes come from the oldest vineyards. The vineyards are at an altitude between 150 and 450 meters. The grapes are picked by hand. The grapes are pressed gently after picking. The fermentation process takes place in large steel barrels at a controlled temperature of 25/28 º C. The brunello of Il Poggione undergoes maturing in French oak barrels of 30 and 50 hl for a period of 36 months. The wine then ripens for at least 12 months in the bottle. The Brunello di Montalcino is a striking wine that shows the purity of Sangiovese. None of these elements dominates the other. . A highlight that you can enjoy for another 20 years.
In the glass the Il Poggione has a ruby red color with intense smells in the nose with a lot of red ripe fruit cherries, herbs, licorice, smoked meat, roses and grilled meat in the nose. In the mouth the Brunello has a tight and clear mouthfeel with fruit intensity full, powerful, complex, velvety and with a long lasting aftertaste. The 2013 volume has received 96/100 Parker points and this is the highest score this wine has received.
