Winemaker Notes

Bright, dark red. Spicy red berries, cherry and a flinty nuance on the nose. Then silky, supple and sweet with chewy black and red cherry flavors. Not especially fleshy but offers an attractive restrained sweetness and finishes with rather soft tannins and good length. Perfect for sirloin steak, grilled, roasted or stewed red meats.

Blueberries, flowers and raspberries. Love the nose, like so many others. Full body, with fine tannins and a silky textured finish. So much going on here. Class. Best after 2013.

Wine Enthusiast
La Poderina's Brunello shows impressive balance between its bright fruit and sassy spice components. On the close, the wine exhibits a tight, firm and penetrating feel that is carried forth by acidity and the natural firmness of the tannins.

La Poderina, Montalcino, Tuscany, Italy
Image of winery

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 repressed by traditional methods, which are in certain ways obsolete.

The wines of La Poderina, on the other hand, undergo an ageing process in little barrels for years, barriques of French rovere next to large casks, but overall in the vineyard systems of highly qualitative cultivation are adapted, that nothing gives into the quantity of the production for vine stock, with surrender that amply maintain under 8 ton (200 pounds) per acre according to the regulations. Difficult decisions, without a doubt, but also the only possibility if you want to follow with coherence the objective of the maximum possible quality. A tough commitment given the international prestige that a wine like Brunello di Montalcino possesses and in particular that of the sub zone of Castelnouvo dell'Albate, that stands out for its elegance and equilibrium.

It is in this light that the wine making research that the technical staff of La Poderina have been carrying out for 10 years, has to be considered. Emphasizing as much as possible the typical characteristics, not only of Brunello or Rosso but also of the specific area in question. The achievements are greatly encouraging and open an opportunity for new interpretation of a great wine with Tuscan and Italian traditions like Brunello di Montalcino.
