Tips for attending a wine tasting

Here are four tips from wine pros for looking sharp and staying comfy at a wine event. To sum up: dress in dark colors, don’t wear fragrance, avoid dangling sleeves, and consider the venue to suss out the appropriate dress code. Women should consider wearing flats for comfort. If you have long hair, tie it back so you can spit easily (see tip 4) or keep a hand free to hold it back. And if you’re going to take notes in a notebook or carry anything, bring a purse or have deep pockets to stash your writing materials. Carrying a wineglass around means you’ll only have one hand free for holding a plate of food, shaking hands with winemakers and taking notes.

Poggio di Sotto

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 property extends over some 32 hectares, 10 of which are planted with Sangiovese vines all registered in the Brunello di Montalcino appellation, 4 ha. with olive groves (1.400 trees) and the residual surface with forest.

The vineyards gradually vary from 200 mt to 400 mt above sea level with steep slopes.

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.

In the steep vineyards, with an average ten percent slope the vines are cordon trained with a very low yield of about 3 to 3.5 tons per hectare due to a series of very strict cluster selections and thinning during the growing season.

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