Poggio al Lupo

Located in Toscano · Italy

Poggio al Lupo (‘Wolf’s Hill’) is one of the three wineries owned by Antonio Moretti, a man who has been dedicating himself to top-class viticulture since 1996.

At this 45-hectare farm in southern Tuscany, Moretti is assisted by a team of renowned experts headed by innovative oenologist Carlo Ferrini and his assistant Gioia Cresti. Attention to detail is paramount here, so the team limit themselves to the absolute perfection of just three varietals – Vermentino, Morellino di Scansano and the single-varietal Cabernet Sauvignon Poggio al Lupo.

The terroir here lends itself exceptionally well to vine cultivation, with rich soils that allow grapes to be grown at a density of around 6,700 vines per hectare. Characteristic features of Ferrini’s vinification process include hand harvesting, long maceration periods and biological acid reduction methods. Since the vineyard first presented its wines at Vinitaly in 2001, it has gone from strength to strength, winning widespread praise from critics and consumers alike.
