92 rating Wine Advocate November 2017

“Beautifully polished and bright, the 2013 Montecucco Sangiovese Riserva Poggio Lombrone is a pure expression of Sangiovese from the wild and rustic hills of the Montecucco appellation along the Tuscan coast. This wine is fermented in open cone-shaped oak vats with gentle, manual punch-downs and longer maceration times. Fruit is sourced from 50-year-old vines planted in tufaceous clay and calcareous marl soils on a breezy perch located 300 meters above sea level. This is a beautiful creation with an impressive sense of cherry brightness and purity of fruit. Drink 2018-2028” Monia Larner

This wine is fermented in open oak fermenters, goes through full malolactic it is aged in large (40Hl) barrels for 30 months then aged 24 additional months in bottle before release. It’s  a really nice wine.

Description

ColleMassari is the most important and largest estate of the Montecucco appellation. The vineyards are located on the Montecucco hill that gives name to the appellation. The vines on the Montecucco hill are the oldest Sangiovese vines of the DOCG (more than 60 years old). This botting comes from the estate’s oldest Sangiovese vineyard, Poggio Lombrone.

Although it is a “new” DOCG, wine has been made in Montecucco since the time of the Etruscans in the 8th century. The wine making tradition is now continued by Maria Iris Bertarelli and Claudio Tipa, who purchased the vineyard in 1998 to be the heart of the Montecucco DOC that it was their vision to create. Montecucco is located between Montalcino, and Scansano, and benefits from microclimates similar to both of those regions. ColleMassari produced its first vintage in 2000.
