Very intense and deep ruby/purple red, which shows great concentration. Extremely attractive nose, with hints of ripe red fruits, blackcurrant aromas, leather and licorice. Full, warm, very well developed and persistent. Big, firm, warm and very well structured, with loads of ripe fruit. Dense, yet silky and smooth, greatly balanced and with an extremely long finish. This wine has a great aging potential.
Plum and flowers, with hints of nutmeg. Full body, with polished velvety tannins and a lively acidity. Lovely texture to this wine. Best in 2013.
Medium bright red. Warm aromas of plum, spices, marzipan and nutty oak. Plush, rich and pliant, showing terrific depth to its sweet red fruit flavors. Quite large-scaled for a Brunello from this estate, and surprisingly approachable now. Finishes with chewy but smooth tannins, excellent length and a taste of vanillin oak.
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.
