About The Winery:
Poggio Nardone is situated in the both the southwest of Montalcino as well as the area of Montiano, near the coast of the Maremma Toscana. Wine has been produced in this area for over 500 years. They have almost 10 hectares of vineyards planted to Sangiovese: half in Montalcino, at an altitude of 350 meters above sea level with marl and limestone soil (rich in mineral salts); half in the Maremma area, at an altitude of 220 meters above sea level, on a plot of land formed primarily of sandstone and quartz reefs.

Tasting Notes:
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.

Food Pairing:
Pairs well with pasta prepared with meat sauces, mushrooms or truffles; complex rice, main courses of pork or veal with sauces.

Ratings & Reviews

91 Points - James Suckling:
"A red with attractive fruit and walnut undertones, delivering plenty of character and enjoyment as a simple rosso. It’s medium-bodied with firm yet creamy-textured tannins and a delicious finish. Drink now." (8/2020)

89 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"This wine pours from the bottle with ruby intensity and bright luminosity. The Poggio Nardone 2018 Rosso di Montalcino offers ripe berry notes with cherry and blackberry up at the front. The rest of the bouquet is very simple, following a steady Sangiovese playlist of crushed flower, spice and forest floor. You get that characteristic sour cherry note on the close, to enjoy with a serving of tagliatelle and ragù. Some 10,000 bottles were made." - Monica Larner (Oct 2020)
