96 points International Wine Report: "Rich and fleshy, it shows bite and character in the notes of currant, raspberry, ripe strawberries and cloves. Full body, tannins of excellent quality, round and well integrated and a finish of commendable beauty. Wow exciting expression. Better from 2022."
95 points Monica Larner (Wine Advocate): "The Il Poggione 2016 Brunello di Montalcino opens to a medium dark appearance with pretty Sangiovese shine and a little ruby sparkle. This vintage shows a slightly untamed or wild side with a dense and heavier fruit profile. The focus here is on blackberry, dried cherry, tobacco and even a touch of smoky tobacco or horse saddle. The wine shows the firm grip and tannic backbone that is a common trait in this vintage, especially with the vineyards on this southern, sunlit side of the appellation. I also get a considerable flash of acidity on the close, almost too much, that certainly needs a few more years to soften. You really need to wait with this one. Drink: 2024-2044. (Nov 2020)"
94 points James Suckling: "A red with blackberry, cherry, some walnut and chocolate, as well as mahogany. Tea, too. It’s full-bodied and firm-tannined with beautiful length and depth. Linear and very fine. Drink after 2024. (11/11/20)"
