Poggio Antico 2016 Brunello di Montalcino 'Altero' - In Bond Per Case of 6x75cl
Poggio Antico is amongst the highest altitude vineyards in Montalcino with an average of 480 metres. We have been long admirers of these wines, winemaker Paola Gloder has been at the top of her game for several decades. We have seen they style evolve over a number of years, with less emphasis on oak, particularly this wine, which is now only aged in 500L barrels rather than the barriques of previous vintages, and the wine is all the more expressive for it. This year this wine really stood out in our tastings for its depth and concentration, one of the more hedonistic examples of Brunello in 2016, but still true to its identity. Drink from 2026, with an expectation that it will go much longer.
Available for delivery from end of March 2021.
