With over 300 acres planted to vine, making them one of m ontalicno's largest producers, Il Poggione continues to pick and sort by hand. In the winery, Fabrizio Bindocci adheres to a progressive approach, one which blends tradition with innovation. u nlike most m ontalcino wineries, Il Poggione uses the submerged-cap method of fermentation, a practice seen more often in Piedmont than in Tuscany, and then ages their Brunello for three years in large 30-50 hectolitre casks. What emerges is one of the most classic expressions of Brunello on the market today, one which transcends vintage and can mature effortlessly for decades. ✦ i l Poggione Brunello di Montalcino 2013 W a 96 » $74 "...lives up to the impeccable reputation garnered by this estate over the years.
