Classic Brunello notes on the nose of dark cherries, spice and beef on a butcher’s block. A pure joy on the palate, rich and palate-filling with notes of black cherries and dark berry notes, coupled with grilled meats, cocoa powder and undergrowth notes. The savoury fruit is balanced by rapier-like acidity and plenty of finely-grained tannins. Serious and profound, unusually for Il Poggione, this will need a year or two in the cellar before it will be showing its best. Drink 2022-2040+.
