Brunello di Montalcino, Poggio Antico, Tuscany, Italy 2009
Regular price £59.40
Poggio Antico, one of the highest-altitude estates in Tuscany, dates to the early 19th century, although no wine was made here until the 1970s when a wine cellar was built. In 1984, the Milanese couple Giancarlo and Nuccia Gloder, who had fallen in love with the estate, its wines, and this beautiful corner of Tuscany, bought Poggio Antico. Since 1987, their daughter Paola has managed the winery; in 1998, her husband, Alberto Montefiori, joined her. The estate’s high altitude – which ensures cool nights – leaves an unmistakable footprint on the wines made here, creating wines with a fresh, aromatic bouquet that are hard to come by elsewhere in the region.
Brunello di Montalcino 2009
Rich, complex, concentrated nose full of ripe red fruit flavours, hints of liquorice, spices and coffee beans. Elegant and harmonious palate.
