Finishes with a solid tannic spine and very good clarity of flavor-plenty ripe but in need of some patience. (Terlato Wines International, Lake Bluff, IL)

Il Poggione is a landmark in Brunello. No Brunello out there delivers the quality and consistency of Sangiovese Grosso like Franceschi does. Big, bold with a long finish, this is the perfect match for red meat, game and aged cheeses.
Try 2001 if you can get it out there !!!
