Poggio Antico Madre 2014
Connoisseurs will appreciate Madre's variety of fruit flavors, as well as its deep ruby color and distinctive, silky texture. Madre's complexity is enhanced by aging eighteen months in 500-liter French oak tonneaux and a further eight months in the bottle.
Poggio Antico is located in Montalcino, a small town in Tuscany about fifty kilometers south of Siena. The earliest written records of the estate date from the beginning of the 19th century, when the present boundaries were marked. At that time, the estate consisted of woodland, grassland, and three stone houses. The development of Poggio Antico started in the late 1970s, when electricity was brought in, vineyards were planted, and construction of the wine cellar began.
