♦ Tasting Note
This is a blend of equal parts Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon. The 2016 Madre most definitely benefits from extra oxygen (I tasted the wine at different intervals after I had first opened the bottle). It's still a bit tight and nervous at this young stage of its life, and this of course bodes well for the aging future of the wine. In fact, I recommend you wait a year or two before pulling the cork. This is a cool and elegant vintage that delivers sharp lines of blue and blackberry fruit with subtle tones of spice and underbrush. The acidity is noticeable, and the wine offers tart fruit nuances on the close. Give it time to unwind in the glass. Some 5,000 bottles were made, and this vintage was released in August 2019.

Plenty of tar, earth, dried red plums, redcurrants, dried cedar, tobacco, vanilla and dark chocolate. Full body, ripe and round tannins and a chewy, drying finish. A blend of sangiovese and cabernet sauvignon. Drink from 2022.

Nestled in the natural forest which surrounds the grounds of Poggio Antico lies the Madre house, after which our first Super Tuscan was named. Poggio Antico Madre is a blend of 50% Sangiovese and 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, this Italian wine is the perfect balance between power and sophistication.
