Comprised of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon and 50% Sangiovese, from 12-16 year old vines in their prime, this wine is absolutely alluring in 2013, moving Galloni to call it terrific. The flavors are bold, rich and racy throughout. This is another wine that speaks more to a house style than anything else, yet all the elements come together effortlessly. There is plenty to like here, including the wine's exuberant personality. Succulent red plum, mocha, spice and rose petal notes wrap around the juicy finish." You're going to be looking a long time for a comparable value anywhere else in Tuscany! "

A first glance at their sleek, modern label says it all: Poggio Antico is anything but “old-School” Brunello di Montalcino. Founded in 1984 by Giancarlo and Nuccia Gloder, it is today run with expertise by their daughter Paola Gloder Montefior This is a domaine firing on all cylinders, with extremely low yields, (2 metric tons per acre—so critical to the quality of Sangiovese) exacting fruit sorting procedures, and enviable technical acumen in the cellar. Combine all of this with beautiful packaging, and a 30 year track record for quality, and you certainly have the Bounty Hunter’s full attention!
