Vinoble is proud to be the importer of Fattoria Poggio di Sotto Hong Kong. The iconic winery was founded in 1989 on the south-east side of Montalcino, the first DOCG in Italy, and home of the famous Brunello. Considered one of the best areas for the growing of Sangiovese. The first vintage produced was in 1991, and within a short time the winery distinguished itself for wines of great elegance and complexity. The property extends over some 44 hectares, 16 of which are planted with Sangiovese and all registered in the Brunello di Montalcino appellation, 4 ha. with olive groves (1,400 trees) and the remaining area with forest. The altitude, along with the protection of the ancient volcano Monte Amiata on one side, and the Orcia river with sea breezes from the other, result in a unique microclimate. This allows for beneficial thermal conditions between day and night, even in very hot summers. In the steep vineyards with an average 10% incline, the vines are cordon trained with a very low yield of about 3 to 3.5 tons per hectare. This is due to a series of very strict cluster selections and thinning during the growing season. The estate is run according to the criteria of organic farming, guaranteed and certified by ICEA.
