Poggio Landi is located in one of the most distinctive terroirs in the wine world. The grapes originate from vineyards in Montalcino's most prestigious and different zones, at altitudes varying between 175 and 500 meters above sea level. This biodiversity, a product of the differences in soil and aspect, is essential to making a wine that is at once expansive, harmonious and complex.
Every year, the Consorzio del Vino Brunello di Montalcino classifies the new wine production - using a 1-5 star system - in order to communicate the information regarding the Montalcino harvest. The 2012 vintage was classified as a 5-star vintage. As with all Brunello, 100% Sangiovese and traditionally vinified. After two weeks of natural, spontaneous fermentation, the wine was transferred into 30hl and 54hl untoasted French oak casks, where it aged for 38 months. A minimum further bottle ageing of 6 months before release was also carried out. The 2012 has ideal characteristics for long aging.
