Il Poggione - Magic Brunello, One of the Best '19s We've Tasted + EOFY Clearance Specials

Filter
    The 2019 Il Poggione is a revelation; a great estate and a near-perfect vintage. It is not like Bordeaux but doffs its hat by showing some cassis, cedar, and cigar-box spice. There is no oak apparent which is great, as the ripe fruit shines through with complex nuances of autumnal woodsmoke, dry forest floor, Asian spice box notes with berry fruit aplenty. The unmistakably Italian tannin backbone is ripe, sophisticated and long. This is a truly profound wine! See below also for some unmissable end-of-financial-year deals on a range of Italian classics.
    Cheers, Randall.
     
    "Alessandro Bindocci of Il Poggione compares the weather conditions of 2019 to 2016. However, when tasting the two vintages, I found them markedly different. While both come across as quite classic, there is more energy and fruit to be found in the 2019 versus the 2016 at the same stage ...  despite its location in one of the warmest and driest parts of the region, Il Poggione remains one of the absolute top producers of Brunello from year to year at a remarkably fair price point." - Eric Guido, Vinous
