Winemaker Notes

Dark ruby red, very concentrated, with hints of purple, which show the great vitality of this vintage. Evolved and austere, with beautiful aromas of wild ripe red berries, leather, and spices. Powerful, big, round, yet extremely elegant. Great balance, and velvety sweet tannins. Silky and very persistent in the finish. Wonderful aging potential.

Wine Enthusiast
Enticing scents of rose, fragrant blue flower, perfumed berry and chopped herb take center stage. Combining structure and finesse, the palate doles out juicy wild cherry, raspberry, cinnamon, mint and star anise while firm, polished tannins provide the framework. Enjoy 2019–2029.

James Suckling
Bright aromas of candied cherry with citrus rind. Full body, firm and silky tannins with plenty of fruit and a clean and bright undertone. So delicious now to drink. Why wait?

Racy and bright, the 2011 Poggio Antico Brunello di Montalcino shows as a generous, yet stylish wine. The wine's aromas and flavors of berries, earth, and leather make it complete and food-friendly. Pair it with rigatoni in a Bolognese sauce. (Tasted: July 20, 2017, San Francisco, CA)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2011 Brunello di Montalcino is a rich and luscious wine that pulls you in with the first sip. The bouquet is very polished and bright with a wonderful aromatic presentation that spans from red cherry to blackberry and from dark spice to grilled herb. There's an impressive sense of harmony on the bouquet. The mouthfeel is slightly more abrupt and crisp with a clear streak of acidity that is so characteristic of Sangiovese. That zesty crispness makes this an excellent choice to pair with a hearty Tuscan meal.

Poggio Antico Winery Video

Poggio Antico is 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, which benefit from the perfect exposure and enjoy favorable overnight drops in temperature, ideal conditions that increase finesse and intense bouquet.

Poggio Antico was founded in 1976 and consist of 50 clayey, calcareous acres of Brunello di Montalcino. The estate has seen a phenomenal growth, going from 50 to the present 80 acres under vine, developing two parallel Brunello worlds – the more traditional, larger-barrel Brunello, aged longer in Slavonian oak and the modern, finesse-driven Altero, aged in tonneaux of French oak; securing a stellar position in the global market and extending and upgrading the facility to ultrahigh-tech standards.

In 2017 Poggio Antico changed hands and was purchased by Atlas Invest, and it is now directed by the new General Manager Federico Trost. Poggio Antico recently lead a soil survey to approach the plot-by-plot management which started with the 2018 vintage by identifying, and consequently harvesting and fermenting separately, the micro terroirs inside each vineyard. All the estate is currently under organic conversion and a renovation of the cellar and of the hospitality center are part of the new plans.

Famous for its bold, layered and long-lived red, Brunello di Montalcino, the town of Montalcino is about 70 miles south of Florence, and has a warmer and drier climate than that of its neighbor, Chianti. The Sangiovese grape is king here, as it is in Chianti, but Montalcino has its own clone called Brunello.

The Brunello vineyards of Montalcino blanket the rolling hills surrounding the village and fan out at various elevations, creating the potential for Brunello wines expressing different styles. From the valleys, where deeper deposits of clay are found, come wines typically bolder, more concentrated and rich in opulent black fruit. The hillside vineyards produce wines more concentrated in red fruits and floral aromas; these sites reach up to over 1,600 feet and have shallow soils of rocks and shale.

Brunello di Montalcino by law must be aged a minimum of four years, including two years in barrel before realease and once released, typically needs more time in bottle for its drinking potential to be fully reached. The good news is that Montalcino makes a “baby brother” version. The wines called Rosso di Montalcino are often made from younger vines, aged for about a year before release, offer extraordinary values and are ready to drink young.
