Poggio di Sotto’s medium-red 2001 Brunello di Montalcino presents an intensely expressive nose of smoke and scorched earth along with layers of sweet dark red fruit that unfold onto the palate with outstanding length, complexity and polish on the finish. It is a deceptively medium-bodied, yet structured Brunello made in a somewhat quirky style. Some readers might find the relatively high levels of volatile acidity off-putting, but I found this wine’s overall balance to be outstanding. Revisited often during the course of several days, it proved to be a very satisfying glass of Brunello. It will require a few years of cellaring and should drink splendidly until at least age 20 Wine Advocate 93

Fattoria Poggio di Sotto was founded in 1989 on thesouth-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.

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

Producer
The sister and brother Maria Iris and Claudio Tipa, who have always shared their passion for nature and great wines, fulfilled their dream creating a “Domaine in Tuscany.The ColleMassari Domaine comprises today three estates: from 1998 Castello di ColleMassari, Grattamacco since 2002 and the Poggio di Sotto Estate since 2011. Castello ColleMassari Was founded in 1998 and is part of the Montecucco DOC area in Upper Maremma, a territory which is ideal for the growing of Sangiovese, and situated between the DOCG areas of Brunello di Montalcino and Morellino di Scansano.The first vintage produced was 2000. Grattamacco Was founded at the end of the 70s in the DOC area of Bolgheri where the growing of Cabernet Sauvignon in this particular region gained great popularity.The first vintage produced was 1982 as a result of blending Cabernet Sauvignon with Merlot and Sangiovese. Poggio di Sotto Founded at the end of the 80s and situated in the territory of Montalcino, first DOCG in Italy, and home of the famous Brunello.The first vintage produced was the 1991 harvest and within a short time the winery distinguished itself for its wines of great elegance and complexity. Alinghi ColleMassari as Official Supplier accompanied Alinghi during the victorious conquest of the Americas Cup in the two editions of Auckland 2003 and Valencia 2007, promoting Italian wine worldwide with the products from its Tuscan Estates.
