The 2015 Brunello is aged for 30 months in 40hl traditional Slavonian oak casks, followed by 18 months of bottle refinement. This wine has great cellaring potential. Intensely mineral, with lots of red fruit flavors, garigue, and geranium notes, this wine makes a wonderful accompaniment to duck, herb encrusted lamb, pasta with a ragu sauce and steak.

Poggio Antico brings us a classic expression of Sangiovese in its 2015 Brunello di Montalcino. The warm vintage has shaped more density and volume in the fruit, but fundamentally this wine holds tight to the bright and fresh taste profile that is characteristic of Brunello. The key is the acidity that remains an integral and important element in the fundamental architecture of this wine. That natural crispness serves to underline lively fruit flavors of wild cherry and pressed violets. Background tones of earth and black licorice also appear. The team at Poggio Antico, located at one of the highest altitudes in the appellation (from 500 to 550 meters above sea level), has worked well to preserve the cool climate characteristics in this very warm and sunny vintage. Some 36,000 bottles were made. This wine went into bottle in August 2018 and hit the market in January 2020.

Cherry, plum, earth, wild scrub and salty flavors are the hallmarks of this dense, hefty red. An iron note becomes more prominent as this evolves on the palate. Well-balanced, with the ripe fruit and saline elements lingering on the finish. Best from 2023 through 2043. 3,000 cases made, 1,200 cases imported.

Bright red with a pale rim. Captivating aromas of ripe red fruits, blueberry nectar, marzipan and Oriental spices. Boasts outstanding inner-mouth perfume and precise flavors of ripe red cherry, redcurrant jelly, potpourri and minerals. Finishes long and seamless. This is one of the best non-single vineyard Brunellos of the vintage and one of the better wines from Poggio Antico in some time.

Forest floor, mature red berry, dried tobacco leaf and balsamic whiffs of camphor come together on this. It's firm and concentrated, delivering dried black cherry, licorice and coffee bean framed in velvety tannins. Drink 2022-2027.
