2015 Poggetto di Sopra - Nobile Alliance | D.O.C.G.
Poggetto di Sopra – Nobile Alliance, Vino Nobile di Montepulciano D.O.C.G.
The Alliance is a group of six Nobile producers – Salcheto, Poliziano, La Braccesca, Dei, Boscarelli, and Avignonesi – all sharing the dedication to Nobile’s rediscovery. The six winemakers have coordinated their respective work and each crafted a cru 100% Sangiovese Nobile specifically for this project. The Poggetto di Sopra brings out the characteristics of its environment, recalling the clay soil it lays upon.
The wine shows grace and elegance, the bouquet is complex with tones of raspberry tart, indian spices, especially clove and cardamom. The tannins are silky with a long lingering finish.
A sedimentation from the Pliocene (3-5 million years ago) of marine origin, the Poggetti di sopra vineyard is permeated by a vein of deep, blue sodic clay. Rich in silt and limestone, but with little or no stones in the underground, the soil is alkaline and does not present much organic matter.
The plants are 37 years old. The vines are guyot-trained at an altitude of 300 metres a.s.l. / 984 feet a.s.l. and grow at a density of 2,564 plants / hectare (1,025 plants / acre).
