Poggio La Noce was established in 2000 by husband-and-wife team Enzo Schiano and Claire Beliard. Enzo is originally from Campania (which is why Falanghina is planted on the estate) and Claire from France. After living and working in the United States, they decided to move to the Italian countryside in 1999. The twenty-hectare estate resides in the hills of Fiesole outside Florence, though only eleven are planted to two vineyards: I Tulipani (named for the wild tulips which grow there in the spring) and Le Civette (named after a family of small owls who live above the vineyard). The Sangiovese, Colorino, Canaiolo and Falanghina vines are planted on rocky soils with south/southwest orientation at elevations between 800-1,000 feet, and have been farmed organically since they were first planted, certified in 2006.  Meticulous attention to detail is paid in the vineyard and only the best fruit is kept for their wines. All wines are fermented with native yeasts in their eco-sustainable constructed cellar which is built into the hillside to maintain cool temperature and constant humidity.

Poggio la Noce’s Vin Santo displays an enticing golden caramel color with entrancing aromas of honeyed tropical and dried stone fruits accented with notes of hazelnut and spice. On the palate, …ejià, shows delicious concentration. This Vin Santo is rich, velvety and complex, perfectly composing flavors of candied apricots, dried pineapple and honeycomb with a delicate acidity and an intensely long finish. An absolute treat on its own, but you won’t be disappointed with the traditional pairing of assorted biscotti.
