94 Pts Monica Larner - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"The 2011 Brunello di Montalcino represents a smaller harvest. Some 130,000 bottles were produced, which is 80,000 bottles less than average. In fact, Il Poggione made more Rosso di Montalcino and IGT compared to their flagship Brunello. No Riserva was produced in 2011. One of the reasons for the reduced production was the very warm growing season that mandated severe fruit selection. In my opinion, Il Poggione has done a fine job with the fruit they dedicated to this wine. This is a wine of ripe fruitiness and dark richness. There is a hint of reduction that puts the proverbial breaks on the wine's intensity. Il Poggione is happiest with the 2012 and 2015 vintages and less so with 2013."

A dark, powerful wine, the 2011 Brunello di Montalcino offers notable depth and intensity. Il Poggione's 2011 is one of the richest, most powerful wines of the year. Black cherry, plum, lavender, cloves and new leather are some of the first nuances that open up. With time in the glass, the 2011 becomes more lifted, as brighter red cherry and raspberry-infused flavors gradually release. This is a rare 2011 that demands at least a good few years in the cellar. In 2011, Il Poggione did not bottle a Riserva. All the juice went into the straight Brunello.
"Ruby red in colour, with a very intense, persistent nose and with red fruit notes. Warm, balanced flavour with velvet-smooth tannins. Long-lasting aroma.
Brunello is the prince of Montalcino wines, produced exclusively from Sangiovese grapes picked by hand from the oldest vines in the farm.
After a careful fermentation at controlled temperature, Tenuta Il Poggione Brunello di Montalcino is aged in French oak barrels.
After being aged in wood, the wine is bottle aged: this is an essential process in guaranteeing the pleasantness and the complexity that have made the Brunello di Montalcino world-famous." - Winery
