Montalcino - Tuscany - Italy
Fattoria Poggio di Sotto was founded in 1989 on the south-east side of Montalcino, first DOCG in Italy, and home of the famous Brunello. Considered one of the best areas for the growing of Sangiovese. 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.
The property extends over some 44 hectares, 16 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 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.
The estate is run according to the criteria of organic farming, guaranteed and certified by ICEA.
