Wine Advocate 92 points - Poggio Antico’s 2011 Lemartine is a Sangiovese/Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot blend. A striking, beautifully delineated bouquet leads to layers of dark fruit in this drop-dead gorgeous red. Expressive aromatics give lift to expressive rose petals, pomegranate and cinnamon notes. The 2011 needs time to drop some its baby fat. There is a lot to like in this super-racy, refined wine. The opulent style is pure 2011. Lemartine is 50% Sangiovese, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Petit Verdot. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2021.  (Jun 2013)

Wine Spectator 91 points - Vanilla and Bourbon aromas from the new oak meet up with black cherry and blackberry fruit in this international-style red. Exuberant, showing plenty of sweet fruit, but traditionalists may want to sit this one out. Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot. Best from 2015 through 2023. 200 cases imported. –BS  (Aug 31 2013)

Producer
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.
