Il Poggione Brunello di Montalcino 2009

Il Poggione Brunello di Montalcino 750ML 2009          
Sku: 19874

Tasting notes
Ruby red tending to garnet, very intense, persistent nose with red fruit notes. Warm, balanced flavour with velvet-smooth tannins. Long-lasting aroma.

Eucalyptus and balsamic flavors mingle with cherry and strawberry notes in this traditional-style Brunello. A bit lean and open, showing dusty tannins on the finish. Best from 2016 through 2024. 16,500 cases made.-BS

Bright red. Aromas of ripe red cherry, aromatic herbs and licorice. At once fat and juicy, with soft, ripe red cherry, strawberry jam and mocha flavors dominating. Thick, broad and full, with harmonious acidity giving the wine shape and providing necessary lift. Finishes long and a little oaky, with plenty of easy sweetness, soft tannins and a note of balsamic chocolate. This 2009 from Il Poggione strikes me as bigger and richer than usual for this wine, and is very emblematic of the Brunellos made in the southwestern sector of the Montalcino hill in 2009.

The 2009 Brunello di Montalcino is a supple and immediately inviting Brunello that is packed tight with ripe fruit and jammy background notes of sun-drenched raspberry and strawberry. I also made note of the alcohol in my tasting note that I later saw registered at 14.5%. The wine picks up momentum in the mouth where it boasts impressive and compelling textural richness. I am an enthusiastic admirer of Il Poggione’s 2008 and 2006 Brunellos, but 2007 and 2009 both seem riper and more immediate. It will be interesting to see how it fleshes out over time. Drink: 2015-2019.

Wine maker notes
Brunello is the prince of Montalcino wines, produced exclusively from Sangiovese grapes picked by hand from vines at least 20 years old. After careful fermentation at controlled temperatures, Tenuta Il Poggione Brunello di Montalcino is matured for 3 years in French oak barrels. After being aged in wood, the wine is bottle aged for a time, an essential process in guaranteeing the pleasing quality and complex attributes that have made this wine world-famous.

Food pairing
Red meats, game, mature cheeses.
