The history of the farm “Il Poggio” is nearly as ancient as its land, which has always rewarded men´s hard work with quality fruit. The fame of Il Poggio’s wines has been testified since 845 when it was acclaimed in the archiepiscopal archives of Lucca. At that time the estate belonged to the ancient farm of “San Piero in Campo”. Today the farm, owned by lord Gualtiero Rossi, has been completely renewed and production of the wine and olive-oil is now open to visitors with traditional Tuscan hospitality – Guests coming from all over the world are welcomed by ancient and delicious Tuscan recipes in a space-less and time-less atmosphere. During the winter season the old wine cellar becomes a warm and welcoming dining-room.

In summer the ancient trees of the large park offer a cool shelter from the heat and in the evenings torches and lamps create a magical setting Read more »

  • Sangiovese is one of my favorite grapes. A very food friendly profile that combines high acid, small but grippy tannins and a touch of astringency makes for wine that are perfect for pairing at the table. Brunello, Chianti, Vino Nobile, Morellino, ton's of Rossos and varietal wines from the west coast will make this a great GTi.I'll kick off the... Read More
