The Poggio Antico Brunello di Montalcino and the Riserva are distributed via 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 Grand Cru 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 last year the winery has been adapted to include more cement and steel barrels in the fermentation area. The goal 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 that makes the IGT Toscana Madre (a blend of Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon) - the replanting will last until 2026.

Poggio Antico is Brunello di Montalcino is made with 100% home grown Sangiovese and it is produced in the traditional way to let the purity of the grape shine. The wine gets a long aging (3 years) and bottle refinement (1 year) for more depth and complexity in the wine.

The Brunello di Montalcino offers a pure and classic expression of the vintage with bright fruit notes, wild cherry, toasted nut, blue flower and forest floor. While the other wines in the Poggio Antico portfolio are aged in smaller tonneaux, this wine is instead aged in large Slavic barrels. You can taste the brightness of the fruit, and it's all very beautiful. Grapes come from a 13-hectare site at an altitude of 500 meters. The vineyards are the highest in the region and contribute to the freshness in the wine. The name of this area is I Poggi, and the soil here is lighter and rockier with both schistous galestro and limestone alberese. The wine is very delicate with floral aromas and a silky smooth mouthfeel. Parker ends his review with " ...There is a lot of fresh fruit here, and the tannins are quite soft and supple "

FACT: The wine is in our conditioned Wine Warehouse and if you come to pick up the wine you will also receive a nice discount. We are almost next to the national road with plenty of parking space. Click here for address
