Winemaker Notes

From 100% Sangiovese grown in soil with Eocene origins, rich in clay, which ensures perfect drainage. Fermentation occurs in 80-hectoliter stainless steel tanks which have a removable lid so the punch-down system is used, instead of the pump-over procedure, in order to achieve a better and gentler extraction, avoiding the use of pumps. Aged 64 months in total, of which 42 month are in wood. The Riserva refines the first 12 months in new French... View More

Critical Acclaim

WS 96
Wine Spectator

Very dark in color, with a complex nose of Indian tea, blackberry, licorice and dried flowers. Full-bodied, with a wonderfully integrated and polished tannin structure. Caresses every millimeter of the palate. What a joy to taste. No use waiting much. Best after 2010.

RP 94
The Wine Advocate

The 2004 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is a marvelous wine graced with expressive violets, black cherries, minerals, spices and subtle French oak. There is gorgeous clarity to be found in the glass, along with a beautiful balance of density and structure. The finish is long, vibrant and seductive. This looks to be relatively accessible early based on the sheer seductiveness of the fruit, yet the wine has plenty of stuffing to age gracefully for years. It is a beautiful effort from Poggio Antico. The Riserva spent one year in 500-liter French oak barrels, followed by two years in Slavonian oak casks. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2024.

Poggio Antico, Tuscany, Italy
Poggio Antico
Paola Gloder has 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. The lower hillside terroir south of Montalcino is conducive to powerful and opulent Brunellos. This, combined with the estate's vineyard elevations -- which enjoy favorable overnight drops in temperature -- bring increased finesse and intense bouquet.
