Tasting Notes
This wine, produced in limited quantity, is the result of a special selection made by Leopoldo Franceschi, owner of Tenuta Il Poggione, from the winery's Rosso di Montalcino barrels. Rosso di Montalcino Leopoldo Franceschi ages in large barrels and barriques for 12 months, before being aged in the bottle. Wine of undisputed class and elegance, it has a deep ruby red colour, with aromas of red and dark berries, underwood and sweet spices. It is rich and complex on the palate, but elegant at the same time, with velvety tannins and a very persistant finish.
