Poggio di Sotto Il Decennale 2001

Winemaker's Notes:

Awarded 3 Glasses by Gambero Rosso: We have always like Piero Palmucci's Brunello Riservas and that tradition continues this year with Three Glasses for his Il Decennale '01, the Riserva, although it doesn't say so in the name. The DOCG boards, inexplicably, did not consider this quintessentially typical Montalcino wine to be true enough to type. This wine presents a textbook hue and makes a big impact on the nose with aromas of fruit, tobacco, medicinal herbs, floral hints and refreshing balsam. The palate is elegant in style and exceedingly well balanced, with everything in place and no flaws or forcing. The tannins are already resolved and perfectly complement the acidity, taking the wine through to a very stylish finish.

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.
