Poggio di Sotto Description

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 32 hectares, 10 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. 

Wine Advocate: 97 Points

The 2013 Brunello di Montalcino is downright gorgeous. The wine is inward-looking at the very beginning, but it quickly revs up to deliver soaring intensity and profound elegance. It goes from first to sixth gear in seconds and grabs all your attention and admiration in the process. The bouquet reads like a textbook Sangiovese, with wild berry, rose hip, pressed violets, cola, balsam herb, licorice and cigar ash. The bouquet underlines the wine's enormous finesse and pedigree, but the mouthfeel is all about frankness, directness and power. This is a naked and pure Brunello that glows bright with confidence and pride.

Vinous: 95 Points

Dark bright red. Crushed red cherry, blueberry, perfumed violet and sweet spices on the knockout nose, accompanied by hints of super-ripe fruit nectar. Then very ripe but fresh and lively in the mouth, offering red cherry, plum jelly, mocha and mineral flavors. Outstandingly pure, juicy red cherry fruit nuances carry through on the long, laser-precision finish. Another knockout Brunello from Poggio di Sotto.

Wine Spectator: 94 Points

A streak of cherry runs through the center of this red, surrounded by plum, leather, tobacco and saline notes. This is dense and long, with echoes of tobacco and mineral extending on the lively finish. Best from 2022 through 2037. 1,250 cases made, 60 cases imported. — BS
