Description

The 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Altero, shows a sustained depth in colour and crystalline ruby rim. Ripe, opulent and powerful on the nose, this wine boasts perfumed violets and cherry cola, freshly cut hedgerow and grilled herbs to add to the well focused red fruit aromas. On the palate, there is a noticeable creamy plushness and fruit concentration, complex nuances of freshly baked blueberry crumble and a spicy, bruleed sun raisined cherry finish. Modernistic, but executed oh so stylishly. 96/100 Greg Sherwood MW

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.
