Winemaker Notes

A rainy winter helped accumulate reserves of groundwater for the mild spring and very hot summer that followed, resulting in small berry size with thick skins, and thus great concentration in the finished wine. 

Blend: 50% Sangiovese, 50% Cabernet Sauvignon

Critical Acclaim

RP 94
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2015 Madre hits it out of the ballpark. This blend of equal parts Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon has benefitted in a particularly positive manner from the heat and warm sunshine of this vintage. The wine offers fleshy richness and fiber that stems directly from the fruit. In other words, it does not feel constructed by oak or over extraction. Instead, this wine appears naturally full-bodied and voluptuous with black fruit favors, black currant and lots of spicy cured tobacco. This is a terrific Tuscan red.

James Suckling
A decadent sangiovese character springs out of the glass with notes of dried red plums, plum liqueur, cedar, resin and some charcuterie. Full body, ripe and round tannins and lots of concentration. A backbone of firm tannins and a bedrock of driven acidity, keeping this very much in tune. A blend of sangiovese and cabernet sauvignon.

Poggio Antico, Italy
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.
