The estate Poggio Nardone is partially situated in the both the southwest of Montalcino as well as in the area of Montiano near the coast of the Maremma Toscana.
Date Founded: 1996
Owner: Tiziano and Alessandra Ciacci
Winery Philosophy: Tiziano Ciacci has been producing wines that are approchable and drinkable even right after release as he believe the wines should have a lot of expression, without having to wait years and years of cellaring. It is only possible thanks to the vineyards sites, strict prunning, long maturation and low yield.
Wine has been produced here for over 500 years.
Winery Acreage: 10 hectares (24.70 acres)
Varietals Produced: Sangiovese Grosso
Winemaker: Tiziano Ciacci
The 5 hectares of specialized vineyards in Montalcino are at an altitude of 350 meters above sea level and are surrounded by woodlands of ilex, oak and arbutus which are characteristic of Montalcino's hillside habitat. The soil is predominantly composed of marl and limestone which renders this terrain particularly rich in mineral salts. The 3 hectares in the Maremma are situated at an altitude of 220 meters above sea level on a plot of land formed primarily of sandstone and quartz reefs. These vineyards are west facing, and are therefore well ventilated by Mediterranean sea breezes. Poggio Nardone's modest size is such that the producer, with care and expertise, can thoroughly dedicate attention to every detail of the estate's production.
Intense ruby red color with garnet tints. Intense and delicate aromas of fresh fruits with notes of cherry. Dry red wine with a good strength and freshness, along with a nice aromatic persistence.
100% Sangiovese Grosso
10 months in oak barrels
