Congratulations to Il Poggione and the Bindocci winemaking team for this well-deserved score for the 2004 vintage! It is not surprising however, since historically Il Poggione has mastered Brunello, crafting exquisite Tuscan wines with a balance of power and grace to marvelously pair with food. I can't wait to try the new vintage with Osso Buco or my mom's recipe for Veal with wild mushrooms!

These scores are just proof positive of what we have all been tasting for years. With the rise of Brunello in the Italian wine world, it pays to be traditional. To have a history and adhere to generations of expertise has enabled Il Poggione to produce a wine which cannot be duplicated anywhere else but Sant'Angelo in colle. It is wines like this which first excited me about the industry and the reason I have chosen it as my career.

Il Poggione Brunello is one of my favorites because it is so full of flavor, yet never feels overwhelming. It's so nice to see a great wine receive the recognition it deserves with 95 points from Robert Parker! I can't wait to add the 2004 vintage to my cellar...and though it will be a daily struggle, having to fight the deep yearning I feel at the thought of consuming such a delicious masterpiece, Il Poggione Brunello is definitely worth the wait.

Congratulations, Ale! I love the wines (you know) and it's so awesome that you're getting the recognition you and Il Poggione deserve... great stuff...

I am very much looking forward to trying the 2004's, Year in, year out Il Poggione is my favorite producer in Montalcino. Sounds like this one will have great aging potential as well. Should be tasting great around the time my 4 year old son graduates high-school!

This wine is AWSOME! I love Il Poggione, year in and year out, but this is truly and exceptional vintage!

Thanks everyone for the great comments!! We at Il Poggione are really happy for such great scores.
We were so excited with the vintage 2004, as it was really good; 2003 was a real challenge, but having old vineyards is a real advantage for challenging vintages as this.
Thanks again everyone and I hope to see you all soon!!
