Wine Details







Wine Description

(2010 Vintage) Brunello must be produced with 100% Sangiovese grapes and a minimum of 12.5% alcohol by volume is required. Total acidity cannot be lower than five parts per thousand. At Poggio Antico the alcohol content, total acidity, and dry extract always reach optimum levels, thanks to low yields and the favorable geographical position of its vineyards.

  • Wine & Spirits
    (2003 Vintage) Good bright, dark red. Reticent nose hints at red fruits and oak, with nuances of fresh mint and sage coming up with air. Quite tight, even austere, in the mouth, without the flesh or sweetness often shown by this wine in the early going. Very inexpressive today. The tannins build and coat the front teeth, leaving a distinctly dry impression. This may yet repay cellaring, but today it's tough going.

    (1990 Vintage) Rating: 4/5 - As reviewed by Decanter. Ruby centre moving to orange on the rim. Ripe, port-like nose with yeast and confection aromas. Lively, cherry fruit, that falls a bit short of the tartaric, and some tannins on the palate. A mouth-watering and well-structured wine.
