PAIRING: Il Poggione Brunello di Montalcino 2013 is a luxurious accompaniment to game, red meats, and strong cheeses.

A ruby red wine with garnet hues and a very intense, lingering and stylish bouquet with small dark berry fruit notes. The palate is dry, warm, quite smooth and tannic and the after-aroma is long-lasting.
