Younger and easier to approach version of Brunello, but already with an excellent structure and a great personality, Rosso di Montalcino is a very important wine for Tenuta Il Poggione. Produced only with Sangiovese grapes from the youngest vineyards of the company, Rosso di Montalcino matures in large barrels and barriques and, subsequently, spends a period of refinement in the bottle. The aging in wood, even if not obligatory for the disciplinary of the Rosso di Montalcino, gives this wine complexity of aromas and structure that make it a great "young Brunello", also smoothing the typical tannins of young Sangiovese.

Rosso di Montalcino is an intense and full-bodied wine, with aromas that recall ripe red fruit. In the mouth it shows its beautiful personality, demonstrating an excellent structure and a delicate texture of soft and velvety tannins. It is a typical and very gastronomic red wine, defined by the owner of the winery as “a great young Brunello”.
