    • "Lo Sbrancato" Rosato di Toscana IGT 2019

      “Lo Sbrancato” Rosato di Toscana IGT 2019

      Pure Sangiovese Rosato, in the nose fine floral nuances, strawberry and violet hints. On the palate fresh, structured and with clear, red-berry aromas until the finish. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Ripe strawberry and cherry with complementing notes of mint leaf, crushed stone, and sweet white smoke forms a remarkably pretty bouquet in Il Poggione’s 2019 Brancato Rosato. It floods the palate with silky textures, coasting across the senses with ripe red fruits, cooling minerals, and acids, as sweet inner florals develop, contrasted by a savory umami note. The finish is long and soothing to the senses, as its textural richness slowly tapers off. Wow, there is so much to like here, showing both sweet and savory, full of energy, and an amazing value."

      “Soralisa” Bianco Sant’Antimo DOC 2019

      Filippo Fanti has been producing white wine since the 80's using Trebbiano Toscano and Malvasia Toscana, which are also used for the Vin Santo. At the beginning of 2000 Filippo decided to plant Viognier and Vermentino as well, to mix them with the local grape varieties. The composition of the four varieties varies each year depending on the climatic conditions of the vintage. The name Soralisa recalls the name of Filippo's aunt Elisa, whom he adores very much.

      Light yellow, clean, tropical fruit scent, fine spice. In the taste yellow peach, juicy, discreet extract sweetness, neatly structured. A fresh pleasure! SUPERIORE.DE

Boasts outstanding acid-fruit-tannin balance and a silky-sweet mouthfeel; I tasted two different bottles just to be sure, and based at least on what I tasted, this Rosso is a real knockout, in fact one of the very best from the 2018 vintage."

    About the region
    Tuscany | Montalcino
     

    The Brunello di Montalcino is one of the most legendary success stories in viticulture in Italy. If not worldwide. Although a wine known as Brunello appears in old documents as early as the 14th century, it was born in 1888, when Clemente Santi first described a wine from his own Sangiovese clones, selected for years, as Brunello on the estate of his family Biondi-Santi, Il Greppo. He allowed the wine to mature for several years in large Slavonian oak barrels. Since until 1945 only four vintages were produced (1888, 1891, 1925 and 1945), the wine was in conversation because of its quality and became known beyond the borders. Today one would probably say cult wine to it. Because it was so rare, but at the same time of legendary quality, it also fetched an incredibly high price - for Italian wine until then. For a long time, Biondi-Santi was practically the only manufacturer, at least until the 1970s it was still the largest. Biondi-Santi is still one of the showpiece wineries today. And one of the most expensive.

    In 1966 Brunello di Montalcino became DOC, in 1980 the first DOCG in Italy, both simultaneously with the "little brother" Vino Nobile di Montepulciano. There were just 63,583 bottles of Brunello di Montalcino from the 1980 vintage and today there are over 10 million bottles. The then 700 hectares of cultivated land became 24,000 hectares, but only 3,500 for Brunello. The number of producers increased tenfold, among them many investors, also from abroad, who already leaf out half a million euros for one hectare that allows Brunello cultivation.

    Brunello di Montalcino is subject to strict production guidelines that are monitored by the Consorzio del Vino Brunello di Montalcino. Each bottle carries a band with a number with which the wine can be traced back to the producer. All producers are represented in the Consorzio. By the way, this is the only Consorzio in Italy where this is the case. The yield is regulated, as are the grape varieties used for wines from Montalcino - Brunello, Rosso, Sant'Antimo and Moscadello di Montalcino - may be used.

    For Brunello di Montalcino this is 100% Sangiovese. Even today, the majority of clones can be traced back to the selection of Biondi-Santi. In recent years, clone selection has also been carried out at Castello Banfi under scientific direction. Here the Sangiovese grape is also simply called Brunello grape. Experts also call it Sangiovese Grosso because it is a clone with slightly larger berries than in Chianti, for example.

    Rosso di Montalcino also requires 100% Sangiovese, although the yield may be slightly higher and the wine marketed earlier. At Rosso Sant'Antimo other grape varieties are also allowed, but the main variety must always dominate at least 70%. Other red wines, mostly cuvées, are labelled as Rosso Toscana IGT.

    Montalcino is a small mountain town about 40 kilometers south of Siena. The vineyards are located in the surrounding hills at altitudes between 120 and 650m above sea level. The climate here is hot and dry, but is tempered by the altitude and the steady winds. The Sangiovese matures particularly well here. The soils are stony and barren throughout, the vines must have deep roots, which promotes minerality.

    Brunello may not be put on sale until after 1 January of the fifth year following the harvest. Before that, at least two years in the barrel (usually four) and subsequent bottle storage are required. In the case of Riserva, the ripening period is extended by one year. Names such as Altesino, Biondi Santi - Il Greppo, Casanova di Neri, Castello Banfi, Ciacci Piccolomini, Donna Olga, Il Poggione, Lisini, Mastrojanni, Poggio Antico, Siro Pacenti, Tenuta Fanti, Uccelleria or Valdicava have made the wine-growing region great. International awards are given year after year, the success: most of the top wines are exported and achieved considerable prizes. SUPERIORE.DE
