Winemaker Notes

"Poggio Abate" is a special Brunello di Montalcino with some unique characteristics; it is made from the best vineyards located near the famous Sant'Antimo Abbey. With a deep ruby red color, with a bouquet of black cherries and red berries, it has a more complex level for the balance of vanilla and tabacco notes, through the use of barriques.

It is excellent with roast and stewed red meats, roasted game and aged cheese.

Critical Acclaim

JS 96
James Suckling

This is a wine with beautiful clarity of fruit with plum, blackberry and dark chocolate character. Full body, with velvety tannins and a long finish. So great now. But will improve with age.

WE 94
Wine Enthusiast

There’s a sassy, spicy quality here, with clove and spice, cola, root beer and black licorice. Smooth, dark extraction with bold structure.

Vinous / Antonio Galloni

The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Poggio Abate is endowed with serious depth in its dark berries, smoke, licorice and tobacco. It is a decidedly muscular wine gifted with serious concentration and firm, tight tannins. Savory herbs, licorice and tar wrap around the powerful finish. It will be interesting to see how the 2006 Riserva ages, but it is likely to always be somewhat of a brute. 92+

Wine Spectator

A ripe style, offering floral, cherry, balsamic and underbrush notes. Slightly pruny, yet complex and firm, turning tight on the finish. Best from 2015 through 2025.

La Poderina is located in Montalcino, acquired by Saiagricola in 1988 and has been the "dependance" in Montalcino of the group. With 20 hectares of vineyard, situated in the southwest part of Montalcino, it is found in a perhaps little known position but certainly one of the most valid of the entire zone. Production is centered on the renewal of the enological style of Brunello, a famous red wine, but sometimes a bit too much... View More
