Il Poggione

Il Poggione

In 1890 the Franceschi family purchased the Il Poggione estate in Sant' Angelo in the province of Siena, Italy and began what would become one of the most respected producers of Tuscan wines. Here, with cool maritime breezes from the southwest the Sangiovese grape reaches its maximum ripeness giving fuller and richer wines than anywhere else in Tuscany.  The results are truly exceptional.  In 2013 Wine Advocate praised Il Poggione's Brunello di Montalcino wines saying they "remain among the very best values in cellar-worthy wines anywhere in the world".
