The Poggio Antico Brunello di Montalcino and the Riserva are distributed through the Place du Bordeaux - so always around September of the year, the negociances in Bordeaux distribute the always scarce wines worldwide among the only affiliated wine distributors, including Grandcru wines . Poggio Antico is one of the highest estates in Tuscany. In 1984 it was bought by Giancarlo and Nuccia Gloder and in 2017 by a Belgian company.

Poggio Antico is a certified organic winery starting with the 2020 vintage. In the past year, the winery has been adapted to include more cement and steel vats in the fermentation area. The aim is to pursue smaller batch vinifications from specific vineyards. Poggio Antico has also planted two new hectares of vines in the prized I Poggi area and plans to add more new vines in 2021. There is also a replanting in the vineyard making the IGT Toscana Madre (a blend of Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon) - the replanting will last until 2026.

The Riserva is produced exclusively during the best vintages after an even more meticulous selection of grapes. A wine with an excellent structure, which is enhanced by a very long aging period in French and Slavic oak barrels. The Poggio Antico 2016 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva (with 9,000 bottles only launched in the second half of 2022) is a thickly textured and rich wine with fruit-driven flavors and extra fiber. The wine has all the hallmarks of the 2015 vintage that will be remembered for the sunshine, warmth and beautiful fruit. Each cluster hung from the vine with glorious perfection. There's definitely more warmth and dark plum intensity here, and you also get more leeway in terms of those savory notes of leather, tobacco and worked earth. The Riserva comes from the Il Vignone location 500 meters above sea level, where the summer breeze keeps the grapes healthy and ripe. As is known, 2015 and 2016 are the absolute top years in Brunello region. Wines with elegance and long aging potential.
