Poggio Landi, a world within a world
A world within a world. This is one way of describing Poggio Landi, an estate at one with the Montalcino terroir, a winemaking region hailed as paradise by international enthusiasts and connoisseurs. A spellbinding, deeply evocative place sets the scene for Poggio Landi, a winery focused on delivering the utmost quality with quantities capable of meeting the market desires of millions of Brunello lovers worldwide.
After all, it’s superfluous to dwell on the power that Montalcino holds over wine lovers at every latitude. Finding a symbiosis this strong between the land and its wine is a rarity. Here the concept of terroir takes on significance inaccessible to others.
“A glass of Brunello di Montalcino is not simply a wine of extraordinary quality; instead it is a way of experiencing a lingering portrayal of the landscape, the centuries-old labours of man and his ability to reap from the land, through passion and dedication, the finest fruit that the earth is capable of cultivating. More than that, it is a sip of history.”
Brunello di Montalcino DOCG, the Italian’s most renowned wine appellations
An history imbued with remembrance of when Brunello took centre stage in the 17th century, served at the noblest of tables,including the British Royal Family. It is no coincidence that Brunello di Montalcino was the first Italian wine to obtain DOCG status in 1980. Poggio Landi plays an illustrious part in this context.
