Winemaker Notes

Tramonto d'Oca is one of the wines that represents Poggio Bonelli at the height of its expression. The strict selection of the grapes and the constant care that accompanies the wine in the cellar forge a fascinating, unique product, displaying a characteristic ruby red color with garnet hues. The intense and persistent bouquet of red jams and spices (pepper, cinnamon) gives way to hints of tobacco and cocoa and closes with a burnt earth and leather sensation. Powerful tannins on the palate. Warm and savoury on the finish.

Pair with grilled red meat, game and medium and mature cheeses.

Blend: 85% Sangiovese, 15% Merlot

Critical Acclaim

WS 93
Wine Spectator
A complex and fascinating wine, with prune, sweet tobacco, meat and berry character throughout. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a caressing, refined finish.
JS 92
James Suckling
Lots of plum and currants, with Indian spices on the nose. Full body, with velvety tannins and bright acidity. Lemony and fruity.

Poggio Bonelli, Tuscany, Italy

Sought after by the most prestigious noble families of Siena, the Poggio Bonelli estate was run by different owners over the course of centuries. The property was in the hands of the ancient Spennali family throughout the Middle Ages. Later on, in the second half of the 16th century, Poggio Bonelli was included in the possessions of the prominent Piccolomini family.

Throughout the 17th and 18th centuries, the land was probably passed down to the Landucci family by way of dowry or inheritance. The Crocis and the Landuccis together managed the Poggio Bonelli estate well into the 20th century, finally leaving it to the capable hands of the Real Estate company of the Monte dei Paschi di Siena.

One of the most iconic Italian regions for wine, scenery and history, Tuscany is the world’s most important outpost for the Sangiovese grape. Ranging in style from fruity and simple to complex and age-worthy, Sangiovese makes up a significant percentage of plantings here, with the white Trebbiano Toscano coming in second.

Within Tuscany, many esteemed wines have their own respective sub-zones, including Chianti, Brunello di Montalcino and Vino Nobile di Montepulciano. The climate is Mediterranean and the topography consists mostly of picturesque rolling hills, scattered with vineyards.

Sangiovese at its simplest produces straightforward pizza-friendly wines with bright and juicy red fruit, but at its best it shows remarkable complexity and ageability. Top-quality Sangiovese-based wines can be expressive of a range of characteristics such as sour cherry, balsamic, dried herbs, leather, fresh earth, dried flowers, anise and tobacco. Brunello expresses well the particularities of vintage variations and is thus popular among collectors. Chianti is associated with tangy and food-friendly dry wines at various price points. A more recent phenomenon as of the 1970s is the “Super Tuscan”—a wine made from international grape varieties like Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Syrah, with or without Sangiovese. These are common in Tuscany’s coastal regions like Bolgheri, Val di Cornia, Carmignano and the island of Elba.

With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World, experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to enhance balance or create complexity, lending different layers of flavors and aromas. For example, a variety that creates a fruity and full-bodied wine would do well combined with one that is naturally high in acidity and tannins. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
