Wine Brunello di Montalcino DOCG
Vintage 2007
Format 750 ml

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 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.

The estate is run according to the criteria of organic farming, guaranteed and certified by ICEA.

Varietal: 100% Sangiovese

Zone: A wine produced from vineyards at 200, 300 and 450 m asl and of varying expositions, where the soil is poor and rocky, mainly composed of marl. The production area is close to Castelnuovo dell’Abate, in the river Orcia valley

Aging: 48 months in 30 hl Slavonian oak casks and 8 months in bottle. There is no filtering before bottling.

Characteristics: Ruby red tending towards garnet red, typical for Sangiovese. Subtle and fruity with pleasant ethereal notes, complex and spicy. Rich and elegant taste, structured with strong tannins pleasantly smooth and velvety.

Goes well with roast and braised red meats, game and aged cheese.
