Poggio Antico Brunello 1997

Winemaker's Notes:

Brunello must be produced with 100% Sangiovese grapes and a minimum of 12.5% alcohol by volume is required. Total acidity cannot be lower than five parts per thousand. At Poggio Antico the alcohol content, total acidity, and dry extract always reach optimum levels, thanks to low yields and the favorable geographical position of its vineyards. Poggio Antico's Brunello di Montalcino is typically deep and intense ruby red in color. The bouquet is well developed and persistent, and increases in intensity with further bottle aging. It has a very clean nose, with hints of blackberry and licorice. In the mouth it is rounded and concentrated, with great vitality, yet elegant and harmonious, thanks to the particularly sweet tannins. It has a very long finish and ages gracefully under proper conditions. Poggio Antico also produces a limited number of Magnums (1,500 ml) of Brunello di Montalcino. In exceptional vintages, Double Magnums (3,000 ml) are also released. Both these special formats are packaged in beautiful wooden cases, which are also available - upon request - for the regular bottle format (750 ml.).
