Poggio Antico
Brunello di Montalcino D.O.C.G. 2000

Organoleptic Characteristics


Color


Dark-ruby red, very concentrated, with hints of purple, which show the great vitality of this vintage.

Bouquet

Evolved and austere, with beautiful aromas of wild ripe red berries, leather and spices.

Taste 

Powerful, big, round, yet extremely elegant. Great balance, and velvety sweet tannins. Silky and very persistent in the finish. Wonderful aging potential.

Technical Characteristics

Grape Variety

Sangiovese 100%

Alcohol by volume

13.55%

Net Dry Extract

32.90 g/liter

Total Acidity (in Tartaric Acid)

5.72 g/liter

Volatile Acidity (in Acetic Acid)

Soil Characteristics

With Eocene origins, rich in clay, which ensures a perfect drainage.

Vinification

In 80-hectoliter stain-less steel tanks, truncated-cone shaped, at controlled temperature, which never exceeds 32C. First fermentation lasted 16 days. Thanks to the particular technical characteristics of these tanks, which also have a completely removable lid, the punch-down system is used, instead of the pump-over procedure, in order to achieve a better and gentler extraction, avoiding the use of pumps.

Aging

48 months in total, 36 of which in traditional Slavonian oak barrels (capacity 37-55.00 hl.)

Bottle-aging

Minimum 12 months of bottle aging before its release (end of January 2005). The wine was bottled in January 2004.
