Poggio di Sotto doesn't mess around; they make 3 (THREE) wines, total, all from Montalcino: Rosso, Brunello and Brunello Riserva.

Poggio di Sotto

Piero Palmucci founded the estate in 1989 just outside of Castelnuovo dell'Abate, which is in the southern part of the region. While so many vignerons and estate owners try to accomplish their dreams by planting a myriad of clones, varietals and really just throwing the Spaghett' at the wall and seeing what sticks, Piero performed a study along with the nearby University to identify the perfect Sangiovese clone for his estate. The entirety of his estate is this one, single grape.

The vines are located within three different plots on varying altitudes of the high hills (200-450m altitude) overlooking the valley of the Orcia River. Here you find the classic seashell-encrusted soils so similar to much of Burgundy, and it contributes to the otherworldly lift and elegance of the wines. Unlike many other estates throughout Tuscany, the Rosso here is the same clone (Sangiovese Grosso) as is used in the big boy, the Brunello. That means the only difference between the three wines is the length of time spent within oak - all of which is Slavonian "botti".

Bright red. Amazingly perfumed, very floral, on the nose, then offers very long and clean cinnamon almond paste, rose, violet and sweet spice flavors. Really noteworthy Rosso di Montalcino.
