Nestled in the sunny southern-central zone of the appellation, Il Poggione is one of the most highly regarded of all Brunello di Montalcino producers. Since their inception, Il Poggione has maintained a standard of excellence that epitomizes “great stuff,” and we are thrilled to have the chance to deliver their latest release: the acclaimed 2014 Brunello di Montalcino. This is a bottling that Brunello expert Kerin O’Keefe once said has “a surprising, indeed almost shocking staying power belied by [its] easygoing approachability.”

The Wine Advocate agreed, saying “Il Poggione has one of the appellation's most enviable track records for quality and cellar longevity. The 2014 Brunello di Montalcino is a different beast. This wine prizes elegance, finesse and a compact mouthfeel... No matter how you cut it, the wine is absolutely beautiful and indeed ranks high on a list of favorite wines from the vintage. The bouquet is chiseled and tight with wild blueberry, plum, red rose and a touch of cherry confit.”

This is a wine to lay in by the case to drink over the next 10 years—and rest assured that in 2030, this price will look like an absolute bargain by comparison! Let’s put a box on the truck for you this spring.

Wine Advocate

Il Poggione has one of the appellation's most enviable track records for quality and cellar longevity. The 2014 Brunello di Montalcino is a different beast. This wine prizes elegance, finesse and a compact mouthfeel. I would suggest a slightly shorter drinking window of approximately ten years. No matter how you cut it, the wine is absolutely beautiful and indeed ranks high on a list of favorite wines from the vintage. The bouquet is chiseled and tight with wild blueberry, plum, red rose and a touch of cherry confit. No doubt the mouthfeel is thinner in this vintage, but the wine has plenty more going on to keep your attention. I'm liking it. I went back to the bottle a few days after it had been opened and the wine was still going strong
