Poggio di Sotto Brunello di Mont 1999

Member Review by Bob Fyke:

Dried herbs, aromatic sandalwood, lavender, tea, and grilled meats, all enveloped in a dusty warm cherry aroma. There is a soft texture and richness to the nose. On the palate, roasted black cherry, more sandalwood and tea with Asian spices and a bit of milk chocolate. The palate has a roundness to it. Persistent and seamless with an integrated parade of complexity that doesn't let up. Complete balance of acid, tannin and fruit with a long aromatic finish.Really a stand out Brunello.

Fattoria Poggio di Sotto was founded in 1989 on the south-east side of Montalcino, considered one of the best areas for the growing of Sangiovese.   The property extends over some 44 hectares, 16 of which are planted with Sangiovese vines all registered in the Brunello di Montalcino appellation, 4 ha. with olive groves (1.400 trees) and the residual surface with forest.   The vineyards gradually vary from 200 mt to 400 mt above sea level with steep slopes.   The altitude, along with the protection of the ancient volcano Monte Amiata on one side and the Orcia river combined with sea breezes from the other, result in a unique microclimate allowing beneficial thermal excursions between day and night time even in very hot summers.   In the steep vineyards, with an average ten percent slope the vines are cordon trained with a very low yield of about 3 to 3.5 tons per hectare due to a series of very strict cluster selections and thinning during the growing season.   The estate is run according to the criteria of organic farming, guaranteed and certified by ICEA.

Poggio di Sotto is driven to show the beauty of the Sangiovese grape. This is a traditional estate and in a vintage such as 1999 you'll find that this regal grape, when in the right hands, ages marvelously. The ultimate representation of classical Brunello producers.
