A beautiful red with dried-berry, light meat and leaf character. Full body with integrated tannins and a fresh finish. This estate always makes outstanding wines.
Il Poggione's 2009 Brunello di Montalcino is a bit of a bruiser today, but it is also one of the few 2009s that is built for the cellar. Smoke, new leather, licorice, spices, scorched earth all wrap around the palate in a dark, voluptuous Brunello with plenty of intrigue. This is one of the richer, more intense wines of the year, but all the elements are very nicely balanced. (AG)
Woodsy aromas of wet leaves and scrubby herbs infuse the dense black raspberry flavors of this rich and approachable Brunello. Notes of baking spices and black pepper linger on the warm finish. Enjoy it with a slow-roasted leg of lamb.
The 2009 Brunello di Montalcino is a supple and immediately inviting Brunello that is packed tight with ripe fruit and jammy background notes of sun-drenched raspberry and strawberry. I also made note of the alcohol in my tasting note that I later saw registered at 14.5%. The wine picks up momentum in the mouth where it boasts impressive and compelling textural richness. I am an enthusiastic admirer of Il Poggione’s 2008 and 2006 Brunellos, but 2007 and 2009 both seem riper and more immediate. It will be interesting to see how it fleshes out over time. (ML)
Bright red. Aromas of ripe red cherry, aromatic herbs and licorice. At once fat and juicy, with soft, ripe red cherry, strawberry jam and mocha flavors dominating. Thick, broad and full, with harmonious acidity giving the wine shape and providing necessary lift. Finishes long and a little oaky, with plenty of easy sweetness, soft tannins and a note of balsamic chocolate. This 2009 from Il Poggione strikes me as bigger and richer than usual for this wine, and is very emblematic of the Brunellos made in the southwestern sector of the Montalcino hill in 2009. (ST)
This forward Brunello opens with a fruit and spice fragrance of ripe black berries, cinnamon and hot red pepper. The dense palate delivers fleshy black cherry, ripe black raspberry, black pepper and cake spices alongside dusty tannins. (KO)
