The Poggio Antico estate is located three miles south of Montalcino, Tuscany and dates back to the early 19th century. The 50 acre property was purchased in 1984 by Giancarlo and Nuccia Gloder and is currently managed by their youngest daughter Paola and her husband, the winemaker Alberto Montefiori. The estate vineyards were planted in the 1970s and are amongst the highest in Montalcino. The high altitude approximately 1,500 feet means a constant presence of cool maritime breezes. These cleansing winds not only prevent fog, frost and mildew, but also eliminate the need for sulfides or pesticides. The vineyards face south/southwest and are planted on a mix of Galestro and calcareous rock. The wines of Poggio Antico are made in a traditional manner to express the full characteristics of vintage, varietal and terroir.

Dark and brooding, offering black cherry, plum, licorice and leather flavors allied to a dense texture. Solid, yet fluid enough to allow the tobacco and spice flavors to linger in the aftertaste. Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon. Best from 2016 through 2024.B.S.

The estate?s 2010 Madre, equal parts Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon, emerges from the glass with scents of pipe tobacco, cedar, grilled herbs and black cherries. The Sangiovese comes through most in the aromas and flavors, while the Cabernet seems to add body and structure. Cabernet notes of cassis and bell pepper linger on the finish. Overall, this is a very pretty wine from Poggio Antico, a venerable estate that seems to be on a roll these days. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2030.
