The Wine

Winemaker's Notes
  • To earn the appellation of “Rosso di Montalcino” the rules require neither aging in wood nor refinement in the bottle before release.
  • Nonetheless the vintners at Poggio Antico prefer to take these additional steps to help the wine to better express its complexity and depth.
  • Our Rosso di Montalcino is aged sixteen months in total, ten of which in 500-liter tonneaux of French oak.
