Description

Poggio Antico brings us a classic expression of Sangiovese in its 2015 Brunello di Montalcino. The warm vintage has shaped more density and volume in the fruit, but fundamentally this wine holds tight to the bright and fresh taste profile that is characteristic of Brunello. The key is the acidity that remains an integral and important element in the fundamental architecture of this wine. That natural crispness serves to underline lively fruit flavours of wild cherry and pressed violets. Background tones of earth and black licorice also appear. The team at Poggio Antico, located at one of the highest altitudes in the appellation (from 500 to 550 meters above sea level), has worked well to preserve the cool climate characteristics in this very warm and sunny vintage. 95/100 The Wine Advocate & 95/100 Greg Sherwood MW

Producer Information: Poggio Antico

Located at an average altitude of approximately 450 meters (1,476 feet) above sea level, the Poggio Antico estate is one of the highest altitude producers of Brunello. The calcareous and
rocky soil ensures perfect drainage and is particularly suited for growing high quality grapes necessary for the full-bodied wines of Brunello. About 32.5 hectares of the 200 hectare estate are under vine.

Since 1990 Poggio Antico wines have been rated by Wine Spectator 5 times within their “Top 100 Wines of the Year” which considers not just quality but also value for money.
