Poggio Leone, Wine, Place & Culture

Wine Exclusive to Carpa Vino

The Poggio Leone farm is located in the Montecucco region and is not only renowned for its breathtaking landscapes but also for its exceptional wines. Nestled amidst the picturesque landscapes of Tuscany, Italy, lies a hidden gem waiting to be explored by wine enthusiasts and nature lovers alike – the Montecucco wine region.

With its rolling hills, charming vineyards, and a rich winemaking heritage, this lesser-known destination offers an unforgettable experience for those seeking to savor exceptional wines, immerse themselves in the beauty of the Italian countryside, and indulge in the warmth of the local culture.

The history of winemaking in Montecucco can be traced back centuries, with ancient Etruscan settlements being evidence of its viticultural heritage. However, it was in the late 20th century that the region began to gain recognition for its exceptional wines. In 1998, Montecucco obtained the prestigious Denominazione di Origine Controllata (DOC) status, solidifying its place among the esteemed wine regions of Italy.

The region experiences a Mediterranean climate, characterized by hot, dry summers and mild winters. The region’s unique terroir, characterized by its clay and limestone soils, produces wines with depth, complexity, and a distinctive Tuscan character

The Poggio Leone collection is manually harvested in 20 Kg boxes, selecting only the best grapes from the vine. After harvest, the grapes are separated from the stems and lightly pressed and fermented from 15 – 30 days for maximum extraction of colours and flavours. The Monteccuco Sangiovese goes on to mature in oak for one year before release.

This wine is a true testament to the region’s terroir, soil, and climate. Each bottle tells a story of a land steeped in tradition, where the art of winemaking is nurtured with passion and dedication. From the varied soils to the warm Mediterranean climate, every element contributes to the creation of a wine that captivates the senses. This wine will transport you to a place of pure vinous delight.

Raise a glass and savor the flavors of this exceptional red elixir crafted by the hands of nature itself.
