Winemaker's Notes:

Intense, ruby red color with ample and well pronounced perfumes. It has great body and structure and is dry and full in the mouth. Its pleasing, and will continue to improve in the bottle. This wine pairs well with mushrooms, pasta, grilled pork or even casual pizza. 100% Sangiovese

About Il Poggione:

The Il Poggione estate has been in existence since 1890, and has been owned by the Franceschi family since 1900. The company’s winemaking operations are supervised by Dottore Piero Talenti, who imposes a meticulous three-part selection process – first in the vineyards, second after pressing, and again after fermentation. Piero’s attention to detail in the winemaking process has resulted in the acclaimed Brunellos for which Il Piggione is renowned.
