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.

This incredibly rich, silky, robust Brunello is one of my favorite wines. My wife and I found out about it from a fantastic sommelier (Chris) at Seattle's Osteria La Spiga (www.laspiga.com).
