Tenuta Il Poggione was founded at the end of the 19th century by Lavinio Franceschi, a landowner from above the hills of Florence, who became fascinated with the vineyards of Montalcino. He was one of the first to institute modern methods of winemaking and new clones of Sangiovese while still preserving the traditions of hand picking grapes and expressing distinctive terroirs. This classic Brunello is made of 100% Sangiovese from vines that are at least 20 years old and the wine spends 3 years in French oak barrels for aging.

'Fabrizio Bindocci and his son Alessandro are the most accomplished father-son winemaking team I can think of today in Italy. Il Poggione is owned by Leopoldo and Livia Franceschi, but the phenomenal Bindocci duo are very much in the limelight. They excel in every aspect of winemaking, from vineyard management to wine marketing. Never have I encountered a Il Poggione Brunello as beautiful as the one released this year. This is one of the highest expression of Sangiovese you will ever taste.' Monica Larner of Wine Advocate
