Poggio Antico is a 50 acre estate that lies three miles south of Montalcino, Tuscany and dates back to
the early 19th century. Purchased in 1984 by Giancarlo and Nuccia Gloder, their youngest daughter,
Paola and her husband, Alberto Montefiori currently manage the family estate.

region. At this altitude, constant maritime breezes prevent fog, frost and mildew all but eliminate the
need for sulfides or pesticides. The vineyards face south/southwest and are planted on mixed
galestro and calcareous rock soils.
The wines of Poggio Antico are made in a traditional manner to express the full characteristics of
vintage, varietal and quality terroir.
