2013 Il Poggione (Proprietá Franceschi) Brunello di Montalcino

Single Bottle - Standard - 750ml

HK$800.00

Tasting Notes:

This red strikes a nice balance between plum and cherry fruit and beefy tannins, featuring elements of leather, tobacco, earth and iron. Balanced and long, with a gripping finish. Best from 2022 through 2035. 16,666 cases made, 8,333 cases imported.

Tasting Notes:

The 2013 Brunello di Montalcino lives up to the impeccable reputation garnered by this estate over the years. This is a profound and beautifully rendered Sangiovese that delivers bold and luscious fruit quality with black cherry and spicy plum at the start. The bouquet follows through with mild oak notes of smoke, tar and toasted nut. There is another aromatic component that includes crushed stone and dried herb or mint. This Brunello shows elegant evolution in the glass and promises a very long aging future ahead.

Tasting Notes:

A Brunello with tile and berry character. Medium body, firm and silky tannins and a flavorful finish. A little tight now. Better in 2019.

Tasting Notes:

The 2013 Brunello di Montalcino is a brilliant bottle of wine and is another ripe, sexy, ready to go 2013 Brunello. This was a sunny, warm vintage that suffered from rain at harvest, yet the wines have loads of charm and accessibility, and they certainly don't lack for ripeness. This beauty boasts a medium ruby color as well as a fabulous bouquet of spiced red cherries, balsamic, incense, and licorice. It's medium to full-bodied, layered, ripe, and seamless on the palate, with nicely concealed oak and rock-solid underlying density and ripe tannins. It's a beautiful wine that has plenty of upfront appeal as well as upwards of two decades of longevity. Bravo!

description Producer information Professional reviews

LAVINIO FRANCESCHI, LAND OWNER FROM FLORENCE, DECIDED TO VISIT THE AREA AFTER HEARING THE STORIES FROM A SHEPHERD, WHO BROUGHT HIS HERDS AROUND MONTALCINO DURING THE WINTER. HE FELL SO MUCH IN LOVE WITH THE LANDSCAPE AND THE PEOPLE WHO LIVED IN THAT AREA THAT HE DECIDED TO BUY LAND AND ESTABLISH A FARM. Generation after generation, many resources were spent on research for quality, clonal selections, winemaking and aging techniques, and also by building a modern winery for the standards at that time. Il Poggione was one of the first wineries to market the Brunello di Montalcino wine as early as the 1900’s, and one of the founding members of the Brunello di Montalcino Consortium. After more than a Century, Lavinio Franceschi’s work is still a fundamental point of reference for his successors, Leopoldo and Livia, who continue to develop the business with that same dedication and unrelenting passion, combining the ancient skills of winemaking crafts and tradition with the latest, most innovative techniques.
