Podere La Vigna

Generations of the Rubegni family have farmed the area around Montalcino, well-known for its production of exceptional red wines. Podere La Vigna lies in an excellent position within this area and has belonged to the family since 1958. Today, Adriano Rubegni and his wife supervise production personally and commercialise the products themselves. The farm takes its name from the surrounding hills, which had originally been entered in the land register as Podere la Vigna, and which are well-known for the high quality of grapes they produce At the time of purchase, the vines on the farm had been grown according to a very old method: "trained" to the mulberry tree, locally known as "Testucchio". The vine, therefore, used the Testucchio as a stake. Their knowledge of the area and long experience in cultivating vineyards led the Rubegni family to plant their first specialised vineyard according to modern technical criteria in 1973. The 4 hectares of well-exposed, specialised vineyards with various clones of Read more »

Podere La Vigna on Snooth

  • Following on JD's adventures in Bordeaux, we had burgers on Monday with ... lots of garlic, with '07 Podere La Vigna Brunello.  For $26, a good early drinking Brunello--perversely, I'm drinking Brunello because my Chiantis are all too young, '09 and later! At that price, I can almost call it a daily drinker until tomorrow when I pick up a half... Read More

  • While updating the wine notes I wrote during this year’s Nebbiolo Prima, in this case for the 2007 Barolo of the village of La Morra, I was struck again by the variability of this year’s crop of wines.La Morra is known as a region to produce a softer style of Barolo, one that plays into the hands of the many modernist producers there. The modern... Read More

  • Podere Rocche Dei Manzoni Barolo Vigna d'La Roul 1995

    Snoothrank:

    Deep and savory on the nose with fresh notes of black cherry and rose petals. Rich, bright and juicy on the palate with silky tannins and wonderful spice and earth framed red fruits on the mid-palate. Chalky soil tones drive the long, deft finish, which shows real richness to the fruit and excellent persistence. 92pts Read More

  • A friend and I had a regions-of-the-world tasting, and we had a Brunello that we loved (Nardi 2003).  I paid about $37 for it, but it was on sale and is more like $60-$80.  My friend has been learning more about wine recently, and was really ecstatic about this bottle.  I told her that she has expensive taste and she's going to have to spend abo...

  • If one looks to Castiglione, as I did last week, for indications regarding the overall quality of a vintage, then one can look to Monforte for signs of the cracks in that vintage. In Monforte, one finds a very broad spectrum of producers experimenting with virtually every style of Barolo known. While some producers are consistently finding their... Read More
