    Winemaker Notes

    The special location of the Villa Poggio Salvi estate enables the production of an exceptional, very elegant Brunello, from Sangiovese grapes picked by hand with great care. A short path lies between the vineyards and the wine-making cellar, hindering an undesired fermentation start or eventual transport damages to the grape-stones. Its main characteristics, in particular the distinctively intense fragrance, the prompt and harmonious roundness of tannins, and the long aftertaste, are the result of the noteworthy microclimatic position of the originating vineyards.

    Since 1980 when Mrs. Laura Bicchi and her mother Grazia Mari, helped by Mr. Roberto Bonucci have taken on the management, they have always worked at improving the quality of the products aiming to reconquer their former fame. Continuous improvements of the vineyards through insertion of excellent new Sangiovese Grosso (Brunello) and Merlot vines, the upgrading of local vines like Colorino, Ciliegiolo and Malvasia del Chianti, the low production of grapes per hectare, the scrupulous care in following every phase of the production from the selection during harvest right through the final wine making by the very capable enologue Leonardo Bellaccini, the use of precious French "tonneaux" in order to refine and the assistance of an important estate such as San Felice for bottling and packaging have allowed Poggio Salvi to obtain remarkable wines such as Campo del Bosco, the Chianti Colli Senesi, the Refola and the Vin Santo.

    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.
