Montalcino Report was conceived by Alessandro Bindocci of Tenuta Il Poggione as a blog devoted to the wines, vineyards, and day-to-day life in Montalcino and Sant'Angelo in Colle.
Alessandro's family has been making wine at Il Poggione, one of the appellation's oldest producers, for two generations. Alessandro's father Fabrizio took over the job from legendary winemaker Pierliugi Talenti, his mentor, who retired from Il Poggione in the late 1970s.
Check back for updates about the growing cycle, weather and harvest reports, and insights and information into Brunello di Montalcino, Montalcino IGTs, Sangiovese, and what's going on in Montalcino.
