In the north-western corner of the Chianti region, resting on the hills between the Montalbano and Arno valley, 123 acres of vines are joined by some 2,000 olive trees on the Poggiotondo estate which was founded in 1968. Regarded as one of the pioneers of modern Italian winemaking, Alberto Antonini combines a global perspective with a unique vineyard location to craft modern Tuscan wines that gain elegance and minerally complexity as they age.
Proprietor Alberto Antonini has decided to pursue a more ambitious approach with the wines from his family’s estate…and the resulting wine is quite striking for this appellation.
