Il Poggione

The story of Tenuta Il Poggione began at the end of the 19th century. It tells of Lavinio Franceschi, a landowner from Scandicci, on the hills that rise above Florence. Franceschi was so fascinated by the tales told by a shepherd moving his sheep to their summer pasture on the slopes of the Maremma between Montalcino and Sant’Angelo that he went to survey the place, caring nothing for the distance and dangers that commonly beset travellers in those days.

At the end of the 1800s, the Franceschi family’s name was put on the local roll of honour, along with that of the Tolomei and the Counts of Ciaia. After more than a century, Lavinio Franceschi’s work is still a fundamental point of reference for his successors, Leopoldo and Livia, who continue to develop the business with that same dedication and unflagging passion, combining the ancient skills of winemaking crafts and tradition with the latest, most progressive techniques.

Brunello di Montalcino 2015 won the gold medal from Mundus Vini Summer 2020 at the 27th Grand International Wine Award - Meininger, and Decanter awarded it as Wines of the Year 2020.
