Notes on the Poggio Antico Rosso di Montalcino 750ML 2008

Tasting Notes Intense ruby red color, a pleasant and rich aromas that is fresh, with hints of raspberry. Firm, generous andwell balanced, with sour black cherry flavors and very good tannins.

Wine Maker Notes 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.

Technical Notes Poggio Antico has no Sangiovese vineyards registered and certified to produce Rosso di Montalcino, but has many certified forthe higher category of Brunello. For this reason Rosso di Montalcino can be produced only by choosing to sacrifice the right tomake some Brunello, making Poggio Antico Rosso in effect a younger Brunello. Aged 16 months in total, 10 in new 500 literFrench tonneaux.
