Il Poggione is a major winery in Montalcino. I tasted several of their wines, including a “dessert” wine that was excellent. It was a Sant’Antimo DOC Vin Santo 2004. The grape blend is Trebbiano and Malvasia.
The wine is fermented and aged for 5 years in small oak barrels and 6 months in the bottle. It was amber in color with heady aromas of honey, apricots and dried flowers. I tasted subtle fruits and honey. It was not cloyingly sweet…it was just right! I am most definitely adding this to my wine rack! Check out the website: http://www.tenutailpoggione.it/tenuta.asp
