Tenuta Il Poggione is one of the undisputed Brunello stars of Tuscany’s Montalcino. With a history that dates back to the 19th century, Il Poggione’s reputation has been cemented as one of the most important growers of this famous area. This substantial 120 hectare estate in Sant’Angelo in Colle, on Montalcino’s southeasterly slopes, combines the best traditional methods with the finest modern techniques within a gleaming state of the art winery, a project that was completed in 2004.
