Winemaker Notes

Lemartine has a distinctive richness combined with a classic elegance. It is a hearty, rich and elegant wine. The black and red berry fruits integrate to enhance a beautiful structure and firm, yet never aggressive tannins. Its generosity delivers minerality, intense fruit flavors and hints of leather, spices and black licorice.

In Lemartine, the Brunello grape still plays the lead role, as it does in all Poggio Antico wines, but here it is blended with Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot (planted back in 1997 and 2003 respectively). These three varietals, rigorously and exclusively estate grown at 420 meters altitude, refine separately in small French oak barrels of varied toasts. On the day they are blended together, they become Lemartine. Prior to release, the wine enjoys a further refinement in the bottle for at least four months.

JS 94
James Suckling

Focused and dynamic with aromas and flavors of blackberries, light chocolate, walnuts, meat and currants. Medium to full body, tight and silky tannins and a long, flavorful finish. A blend of sangiovese, cabernet sauvignon and petit verdot.

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.

Legendary in Italy for its Renaissance art and striking landscape, Tuscany is also home to many of the country’s best red wines. Sangiovese reigns supreme here, as either the single varietal, or a dominant player, in almost all of Tuscany’s best.

A remarkable Chianti, named for its region of origin, will have a bright acidity, supple tannins and plenty of cherry fruit character. From the hills and valleys surrounding the medieval village of Montalcino, come the distinguished and age-worthy wines based on Brunello (Sangiovese). Earning global acclaim since the 1970s, the Tuscan Blends are composed solely of international grape varieties or a mix of international and Sangiovese. The wine called Vine Nobile di Montepulciano, composed of Prognolo Gentile (Sangiovese) and is recognized both for finesse and power.
