Poggio Antico is a boutique winery located in Montalcino, a small town in Tuscany, about 50 kilometers South of Siena. The estate includes about 200 hectares of beautiful woods, fields, vineyards and olive groves. The first wines of Poggio Antico were produced in 1976. Poggio Antico was bought in 1984 by Giancarlo and Nuccia Gloder. Since the beginning, they have made many improvements both in the vineyards and in the cellar, thanks to great investments. Poggio Antico has been managed by their youngest daughter, Paola, since 1987. In September 1997 she was joined in this task by her husband Alberto.
About 32.5 hectares (80 acres) of the estate are under vine. Of these, 15.5 hectares (38 acres) date from the ’70s, while another 17 hectares (42 acres) were planted in May 1997 and May 2001.
Of the total surface of the vineyards, 30 hectares (74 acres) are planted with Sangiovese (also called “Brunello” when planted within the territory of Montalcino) and 2.5 hectares (6.00 acres) are dedicated to Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot, which were planted in 1997 and 2003 respectively, to be blended with Sangiovese for our two “Supertuscan” wines: Madre (born with the 2001 vintage)and Lemartine (born with the 2010 vintage).
