The Wine

Vineyard Profile
  • Located at an average altitude of apporximately 450 meters above sea level, Poggio Antico is one of the highest altitude producers of Brunello.
  • The steady breezes at this altitude sweep away morning and evening fogs and early frosts, and dry the grapes after every rain, thereby preventing the development of mold and allowing us to avoid anti-mold chemical treatments.
  • This highly privileged position and sunny vineyards facing south to southwest guarentee optimum growing conditions, particularly during the crucial maturation period when the grapes gradually reach a perfect balance between sugar and acidity.
Winemaker's Notes
  • Poggio Antico’s Rosso di Montalcino is characterized by an intense ruby red color, a pleasant and rich bouquet that is fresh, with hints of raspberry.
  • Its taste is firm, generous and well balanced, with sour black cherry flavors and very good tannins.
