Description

The Poggio Antico 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva (with 9,000 bottles going to market in January 2021) is a thickly textured and rich wine with fruit-driven flavors and extra fiber. The wine sings with the characteristics of this vintage that will be remembered for the sunshine, the warmth and the picture-perfect fruit. Each cluster hung from the vine with glorious perfection. There is more warmth and dark plum intensity here for sure, and you also get greater latitude in terms of those savory tones of leather, tobacco and tilled earth. The Riserva is sourced from the Il Vignone site at a high 500 meters above sea level where summer breezes keep the grapes healthy and ripe. 97/100 Wine Advocate; 97+/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.
