Tenuta Il Poggione

This tradition-minded property is currently owned by the fifth generation of the Franceschi family. Estate manager Fabrizio Bindocci started in 1976, first responsible for viticulture, then adding winemaking duties in 1999. Il Poggione's 320 acres of vineyards range in elevation from 500 to 1,500 feet, giving Bindocci, now joined by his son Alessandro, the resources to make a balanced Brunello each vintage; in 2010, favorable growing conditions contributed to something truly special. The wine macerates for 20 to 25 days on the skins with a submerged cap, then ages three years in 3,000- and 5,000-liter oak casks.
