The Poggio Antico estate is located three miles south of Montalcino, Tuscany and dates back to the early 19th century. The 50 acre property was purchased in 1984 by Giancarlo and Nuccia Gloder and is currently managed by their youngest daughter Paola and her husband, the winemaker Alberto Montefiori. The estate vineyards were planted in the 1970s and are amongst the highest in Montalcino. The high altitude approximately 1,500 feet means a constant presence of cool maritime breezes. These cleansing winds not only prevent fog, frost and mildew, but also eliminate the need for sulfides or pesticides. The vineyards face south/southwest and are planted on a mix of Galestro and calcareous rock. The wines of Poggio Antico are made in a traditional manner to express the full characteristics of vintage, varietal and terroir.

This beautiful estate, which lies 3 miles south of Montalcino, dates from the early 19th century. Its 50 acres of vineyards were planted in the early 1970s. It was purchased in 1984 by Giancarlo and Nuccia Gloder, originally from Milan, who had fallen in love with the wines of Montalcino and the unique geographical position of Poggio Antico. Their youngest daughter, Paola, has managed the estate since 1987 and was joined by her husband, Alberto Montefiori, in 1998. Together they have elevated Poggio Antico to worldwide recognition as a star of its appellation whose wines stand out for their elegance and charm. Located at an average altitude of 1500 feet, Poggio Antico boasts some of the highest vineyards in Montalcino. The elevation brings constant maritime breezes which prevent fog, frost and mildew, allowing the grapes to be grown in the most environmentally-friendly way possible. The south and southwest exposures exploit the sunlight and enhance ripeness, while the cool nights bring refinement and elegance to the wines. The vines are planted on a perfectly drained terroir with a mix of galestro and calcareous rocks. The traditional Brunello is aged in large Slavonian oak for 3 years. The more modern-styled Altero is aged for 2 years in French tonneaux and is more approachable in its youth. A Brunello Riserva is produced from the oldest vineyards reaching their peak of expression only in the greatest vintages. It spends one year in new French tonneaux before being racked into the Slavonian uprights for another 2 years. In addition, Poggio Antico produces a very fine Rosso di Montalcino and Madre an IGT blend of equal parts Sangiovese Grosso and Cabernet Sauvignon. Both are refined in French tonneaux.
