Wow, what a wine! The 2016 Il Poggione Brunello di Montalcino is a magical wine that drinks well now but can cellar for decades. For years, one of the best producers of Montalcino was not represented in Australia. Well with the 2016 vintage that has all changed and we have managed to secure a fantastic allocation which we proudly offer to our customers today. If there is one Brunello from the fames 2016 vintage you need in your cellar, then this is it.
Personally, even though this wine has not been readily available in Australia, I have been buying vintage after vintage for one of my cellars that I have in Montalcino. This wine drinks so beautfully after a decade of cellaring and I consider this an absolute staple of my cellar. I am so glad that it is now in the good hands of a fantastic importer and I can store and cellar this wine in my cellar in Oz. It is truly a remarkable wine and it does not get any better with the 2016 vintage.
Like all the 2016 Brunello we have offered, the wines have sold out in a flash. If you love Brunello, this is a must have wine from the vintage.
