The Wine
Rich and suave, featuring cherry, raspberry, floral and spice flavors. Juicy and harmonious, with a long, flavorful aftertaste of fruit, tobacco and spice. Drink now through 2022.

As a D.O.C. appellation (Denominazione di Origine Controllata - controlled from the origin) wine Rosso di Montalcino has its own regulations that are - to some extent - similar to those of Brunello. However, the appellation of Rosso di Montalcino permits higher yields per hectare than those allowed for the production of Brunello, without a mandatory period of aging in wood. Also, the minimum alcohol content for this wine is 12.0% by volume, instead of the 12.5% that is necessary for Brunello.

At Poggio Antico we make no distinction during the harvest between grapes destined for various wines (except for Riserva) so that the yield and therefore the quality of the fruit used for Rosso di Montalcino is identical to those of Brunello and Altero.

Therefore our Rosso di Montalcino is made by bottling a small quantity of Brunello early. The wine spends an entire year in 500-liter French oak tonneaux and is then "bottle-aged" for at least four months before release.
