Winemaker Notes

Made with 100% Sangiovese from Montalcino and produced in the traditional way, our classic Brunello let’s the purity of the grape shine through. Long wood aging and bottle refinement give this wine incredible depth and complexity.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JS 94
James Suckling
Seriously fresh and clean with blackberry, orange peel and hints of mushroom. Medium to full body, fine and silky tannins and a crisp finish.
RP 93
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Here is a silky and smooth interpretation of Sangiovese from a cool and classic vintage. The 2013 Brunello di Montalcino offers a balanced bouquet with equal parts dark fruit, spice and grilled herb. This wine delivers a soft and delicate approach with firm tannins that are well integrated within the greater flesh and texture of the wine.
D 92
Decanter
Paola Gloder has run this 32 hectare property with great flair since her family, originally from Milan, bought it in 1984. The vineyards are among the highest in the region. The nose is a beauty, with pure, intense cherry aromas. The palate is rich but sleek, and marked by its brightness and freshness. The tannins are fine-grained, and the acidity gives intensity. The finish is fresh, balanced, and long. Aged in large casks. Drinking Window 2019 - 2035
ST 92
International Wine Cellar
Bright red. Fresh and floral, offering straightforward red berry, herb and violet aromas and flavors with early appeal. Impeccably balanced and smooth on the long, violet-accented finish. A very elegant Brunello with sneaky concentration and depth.
WS 92
Wine Spectator
Elegant, even delicate, this red evokes leafy, floral, strawberry and cherry notes, all backed by a firm, bright structure. Linear yet long, with fine tension and juiciness. Best from 2021 through 2035. 2,200 cases made, 700 cases imported.

Poggio Antico, Italy
Poggio Antico Winery Video

Poggio Antico is one of Montalcino's most elevated estates, with vineyards averaging 1476 feet above sea level, southwest of the famed medieval citadel. Both the unique location and altitude privilege the wines of Poggio Antico, which benefit from the perfect exposure and enjoy favorable overnight drops in temperature, ideal conditions that increase finesse and intense bouquet.

Poggio Antico was founded in 1976 and consist of 50 clayey, calcareous acres of Brunello di Montalcino. The estate has seen a phenomenal growth, going from 50 to the present 80 acres under vine, developing two parallel Brunello worlds – the more traditional, larger-barrel Brunello, aged longer in Slavonian oak and the modern, finesse-driven Altero, aged in tonneaux of French oak; securing a stellar position in the global market and extending and upgrading the facility to ultrahigh-tech standards.

In 2017 Poggio Antico changed hands and was purchased by Atlas Invest, and it is now directed by the new General Manager Federico Trost. Poggio Antico recently lead a soil survey to approach the plot-by-plot management which started with the 2018 vintage by identifying, and consequently harvesting and fermenting separately, the micro terroirs inside each vineyard. All the estate is currently under organic conversion and a renovation of the cellar and of the hospitality center are part of the new plans.

Montalcino Wine

Tuscany, Italy

Famous for its bold, layered and long-lived red, Brunello di Montalcino, the town of Montalcino is about 70 miles south of Florence, and has a warmer and drier climate than that of its neighbor, Chianti. The Sangiovese grape is king here, as it is in Chianti, but Montalcino has its own clone called Brunello.

The Brunello vineyards of Montalcino blanket the rolling hills surrounding the village and fan out at various elevations, creating the potential for Brunello wines expressing different styles. From the valleys, where deeper deposits of clay are found, come wines typically bolder, more concentrated and rich in opulent black fruit. The hillside vineyards produce wines more concentrated in red fruits and floral aromas; these sites reach up to over 1,600 feet and have shallow soils of rocks and shale.

Brunello di Montalcino by law must be aged a minimum of four years, including two years in barrel before realease and once released, typically needs more time in bottle for its drinking potential to be fully reached. The good news is that Montalcino makes a “baby brother” version. The wines called Rosso di Montalcino are often made from younger vines, aged for about a year before release, offer extraordinary values and are ready to drink young.

Among Italy's elite red grape varieties, Sangiovese has the perfect intersection of bright red fruit and savory earthiness and is responsible for the best red wines of Tuscany. While it is best known as the chief component of Chianti, it is also the main grape in Vino Nobile di Montepulciano and reaches the height of its power and intensity in the complex, long-lived Brunello di Montalcino. Somm Secret—Sangiovese doubles under the alias, Nielluccio, on the French island of Corsica where it produces distinctly floral and refreshing reds and rosés.
