Description

Poggio al Granchio is a magical place for environmental and landscape value; it is a narrow valley on the south-eastern ridge of Montalcino which descends towards Sant’Antimo. It is the area that reaches the highest altitudes for the vineyards of the hill of the Ionian. It is a sun-kissed vineyard that climatically undergoes the strong influence of Monte Amiata (a former volcano and sacred mountain for the Etruscans) that stands right in front of it. This area of ​​Montalcino is characterized by soils rich in galestro, particularly valuable for Brunello. On the galestro the Sangiovese becomes mineral, sapid, with silky tannins; on the nose it is expressed with notes of ripe fruit from the undergrowth, combined with that unmistakable scent of flint which can also be perceived by smelling these shales. The wines in the mouth have a subtle entrance, elegant but firm, resulting in sapid and mineral. Here Brunello is dark in color and has great potential for aging. Its name "Poggio al Granchio" derives from a very small pond in the center of the property, under an imposing holm oak, where nice and lively freshwater crabs are found inside.
