Lemartine has a distinctive richness combined with a classic elegance. It is a hearty, rich and elegant wine. The black and red berry fruits integrate to enhance a beautiful structure and firm, yet never aggressive tannins. Its generosity delivers minerality, intense fruit flavors and hints of leather, spices and black licorice.
In Lemartine, the Brunello grape still plays the lead role, as it does in all Poggio Antico wines, but here it is blended with Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot (planted back in 1997 and 2003 respectively). These three varietals, rigorously and exclusively estate grown at 420 meters altitude, refine separately in small French oak barrels of varied toasts. On the day they are blended together, they become Lemartine. Prior to release, the wine enjoys a further refinement in the bottle for at least four months.
Focused and dynamic with aromas and flavors of blackberries, light chocolate, walnuts, meat and currants. Medium to full body, tight and silky tannins and a long, flavorful finish. A blend of sangiovese, cabernet sauvignon and petit verdot.
