We have added the following products to your shopping cart from a previous visit:
Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.
Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.
Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.
Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.
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 500-liter oak tonneaux and then another 30 months in the traditional Slavonian oak barrels (capacity 37-55.00 hl.). The wine is bottle aged for at least 18 months before release. 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.
"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. "
"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."

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.

One of the most important wine regions in Italy, Tuscany is home to the cities of Florence and Siena, the districts of Chianti and Brunello di Montalcino, and the wineries of Sassicaia, Tignanello and Ornellaia. Tuscany is also home to the indigenous Italian grape variety, Sangiovese. Most of the wine coming from Tuscany is made from some clone of this...Read More About Tuscany
Sangiovese (SAHN-gee-oh-VAY-zee) Blood of Jove (literally translated) The principal grape of Chianti - in fact, the principle grape of all of Tuscany - has had its ups and downs. For a stint in the 70s and 80s, wines labeled Chianti contained cheap red wine packaged in a straw casked bottle, most popular for the candle holder it would become. But no more. Sangiovese re...Read More About Sangiovese
