The Brunello di Montalcino is still a flagship of Italian viticulture, this red wine, classified as DOCG, consists of 100% Sangiovese Grosso grape variety and is bottled after a long barrel storage period in order to then be aged in the Bottle slowly approaching its peak of maturity. It is one of the longest-lived Italian red wines.

At Poggio Landi, the vines are grown at different altitudes in order to obtain strength on the one hand and cool finesse on the other. The aging in large wooden barrels takes a total of 38 months, after bottling the wine is then stored another six months in the bottle before the wine is sent to customers all over the world.

2016 is one of the greatest vintages in Tuscany ever.

Unfortunately, there are not too many press reviews of this young winery, the 2012 vintage of Brunello di Montalcino from Poggio Landi received a very positive rating from Decanter magazine, which awarded it an incredible 97/100 points . The 2015 vintage was rated 93/100 by Parker's Wine Advocate. Quote: "Poggio Landi falls under the greater Dievole wine group that operates in some of the best appellations of Tuscany. Their 2015 Brunello di Montalcino leaves no doubt as to its warm-vintage origins. Compared to the estate's Rosso di Montalcino, fruit is harvested at slightly lower elevations (at 200 to 300 meters above sea level, compared to the Rosso that comes from a site that rises as high as 400 meters in altitude). That range of elevations will no doubt come in handy as Montalcino faces climate change. This wine maintains a tight, polished and traditional personality. It plays perfectly into the house style that favors an elegant and less extracted approach. Yet you also sense the extra sunshine and warmth of the vintage in those aromas of wild cherry, plum and crushed flowers."
