The Brunello di Montalcino DOCG Poggio Landi rises from a mono-varietal selection of top-choice Sangiovese grapes picked from the Poggio Landi vines growing at an altitude of 180-500 meters above sea level.

Aged for 38 months in French oak barrels and 6 months in bottles, the Brunello di Montalcino Poggio Landi speaks of vigor and elegance, sounding out the very characteristics that have won this wine variety worldwide fame and acclaim.

#12 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2021
Complex on the nose, with distinctive nuances of ripe red fruit and spices such as black pepper and licorice. The same ripe red fruits continue on the palate, accompanied by vanilla notes. Very long finish. 

97 points Wine Spectator
Broad and mouthfilling, exuding floral, black cherry, blackberry, graphite and stony mineral flavors. Powerful, yet reined in by the vivid acidity, with tannins that are refined and well-integrated. Shows terrific balance and length.
