Italy – La Poderina
La Poderina is located just south of Montalcino near the village of Castelnuovo dell’Abate that is well known for the elegance and balance of its grapes. Thanks to the feeling that innovation serves tradition, wines by La Poderina mature in a mixture of French oak barriques and large wooden barrels. Vineyards are geared to produce 6 tonnes of grapes per hectare, that is significantly lower than the 8 tonnes allowed by law. Brunello is produced in two versions: the regular wine Brunello di Montalcino DOCG and the single vineyard selection Brunello di Montalcino Poggio Banale DOCG. In addition to that, La Poderina produces: Rosso di Montalcino DOC, Virgùlto Rosso di Toscana IGT, Grappa di Brunello and Moscadello di Montalcino DOC.
