Poggio Sotto

Antonio Galloni calls Fattoria Poggio di Sotto a “cult producer” in Tuscany:

Over the last decade or so, Poggio di Sotto has established itself as one of the cult producers in Montalcino” - Antonio Galloni 

Proprietor Piero Palmucci is now making what Galloni calls “some of the most brilliant wines in Montalcino”.   And he is also inspiring a whole new generation of young growers with his non-interventionalist philosophy to viticulture.

Fattoria Poggio di Sotto was founded in 1989, and the estate today comprises just 16 ha of steep, hillside Sangiovese vineyards.

The vineyards rise up to 400 metres on the Montalcino hill. The rocky soils are characterized by gravel and clay in the lower parcels and sandy clay in the upper levels, which is an excellent terroir for Sangiovese. Poggio di Sotto produces three Sangiovese-based wines: a Brunello di Montalcino DOCG Riserva, a Brunello di Montalcino DOCGand a Rosso di Montalcino DOC.

Poggio di Sotto Brunello di Montalcino 2011 (1x150cl)

Wine Advocate (93)

The 2011 Brunello di Montalcino offers an immediate sense of generosity and openness that makes it attractive on first impact. In this regard, 2011 is very different from the slow-to-reveal-itself 2010 vintage that proceeds it. Bold tones of dark cherry, plum, spice and resin rise to the top with enthusiasm and intensity. The wine holds back nothing. It shows a velvety texture that is rich and enduring. All the while, this Brunello remains faithful to its time honored traditions and its territorial roots.

Poggio di Sotto Brunello di Montalcino 2013 (1x150cl)

Wine Advocate (97)

The 2013 Brunello di Montalcino is downright gorgeous. The wine is inward-looking at the very beginning, but it quickly revs up to deliver soaring intensity and profound elegance. It goes from first to sixth gear in seconds and grabs all your attention and admiration in the process. The bouquet reads like a textbook Sangiovese, with wild berry, rose hip, pressed violets, cola, balsam herb, licorice and cigar ash. The bouquet underlines the wine's enormous finesse and pedigree, but the mouthfeel is all about frankness, directness and power. This is a naked and pure Brunello that glows bright with confidence and pride.

Poggio di Sotto Brunello di Montalcino 2015 (6x75cl)

Vinous (96)

Luminous red. Delicately smoky and ripe on the nose, with deep raspberry and red cherry aromas complicated by notes of sandalwood, licorice, graphite and sweet pipe tobacco. Full and rich but also very bright, with red and dark berry flavors given life by juicy, harmonious acidity and very nicely framed by supple tannins. Closes long, fresh, and expansive, deeper and less sweet than the estate’s 2018 Rosso di Montalcino also released this year. Utterly delicious and already accessible, this boasts noteworthy elegance and freshness for such a big ripe wine.

Alluring aromas of macerated cherry, strawberry and rose give way to a core of red fruit framed by iron, earth and tobacco in this elegant red, which is silky, but also well-structured, balanced and intense in a stylish profile. Very complex and promising. 1,600 cases made. - BS

Poggio di Sotto Brunello di Montalcino Riserva 2013 (6x75cl)

Wine Advocate (97)

Poggio di Sotto reaches lofty new heights with the 2013 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva. I spent a lot of time studying this wine and I tasted it at different intervals and from different bottles. Fruit ripened slowly over a long period of time over the course of this cool vintage, resulting in bright acidity and a firm tannic backbone. This wine follows the classic promise of traditional Brunello that, above all, softens and improves with age. This wine will meet those important goals. The bouquet offers evolved tones of dried cherry and crème de cassis with lovely spice, tar, licorice and balsam herb that culminate in increased complexity and persistence. I also taste some of the sharpness of the vintage, although it should subside with time. That point of tannic thorniness (that I associate with 2013) is the only thing preventing this wine from scoring even higher. Only 2,700 bottles were produced.

Poggio di Sotto Rosso di Montalcino 2016 (6x75cl)

Wine Advocate (94)

The 2016 Rosso di Montalcino (with 18,000 bottles made) is a beautiful wine that could certainly rival full-fledged Brunello from some of the best estates in the appellation. This is especially true in the case of this vintage that over performs from all points of view. Poggio di Sotto makes a concerted effort to promote its Rosso as a stand-alone wine, and not as a little sister or Brunello inferior. Specific investments have been made to differentiate the Rosso program, and well, you might notice the expensive price point. Is the wine worth it? You can purchase some of Montalcino’s best Brunellos for less than this. However, there is a unique level of primary fruit intensity here with bold fruit aromas of cassis and wild raspberry that you would never get in a wine that ages as long as Brunello does. This is a fresh and forward wine that delivers impressive complexity and depth. The context is young fruit, not evolved fruit. In a sense, this wine embodies the true philosophy of Rosso di Montalcino more than any of its peers. The wine is not less important than Brunello, but it does strive to display Sangiovese at a different moment in its lifeline.
