  • Winemaker's Notes:

    As a D.O.C. appellation (Denominazione di Origine Controllata - controlled from the origin) wine Rosso di Montalcino has its own regulations that are - to some extent - similar to those of Brunello. However, the appellation of Rosso di Montalcino permits higher yields per hectare than those allowed for the production of Brunello, without a mandatory period of aging in wood. Also, the minimum alcohol content for this wine is 12.0% by volume, instead of the 12.5% that is necessary for Brunello. At Poggio Antico we make no distinction during the harvest between grapes destined for various wines (except for Riserva) so that the yield and therefore the quality of the fruit used for Rosso di Montalcino is identical to those of Brunello and Altero. Therefore our Rosso di Montalcino is made by bottling a small quantity of Brunello early. The wine spends an entire year in 500-liter French oak tonneaux and is then "bottle-aged" for at least four months before release. Poggio Antico's Rosso di Montalcino is characterized by an intense ruby red color, a pleasant and rich bouquet that is fresh, with hints of raspberry. Its taste is firm, generous and well balanced, with sour black cherry flavors and very good tannins. In extremely favorable vintages, all the crop is destined for the production of Brunello and Altero. For this reason, the production of Rosso di Montalcino may vary considerably and is not guaranteed yearly.

    Tasting Notes:

    Color: Beautiful deep ruby red. Bouquet: Intense, with loads of red ripe fruit, plum and black cherry. Taste: Rich, warm, round, concentrated and silky. Great vitality and persistent.
