“It’s Lucina, the goddess of childbirth and protector of women at work, which inspired the name and the wines of this Poggio Ilcinese”
Love their origins and their land
When we talk about the origins of wine something mythological always comes to our minds. So, Poggio Lucina created its name being inspired by the orgins of the name Montalcino: some suppose that it come from Mons Lucinus (as told in a document from 814 B.C.) in the honour the goddess Lucina ( goddess of childbirth and protector of women at work), or from the latin word lucus (‘holy forest’ or ‘small forest’).
So it wasn’t by chance that for Poggio Lucina, a family conduction winery from Montalcino owned by the Di Donato‘s brothers, it’s a woman of the family, Evelise Di Donato, which represents the new generation of local winemakers
The one of the Di Donato’s family it’s an ancient farming tradition that sublimates the historical identity of a Brunello that is bond its territory together with the innovation that was introduced by a new generation, which bases its winemaking art on a genuine passion for this corner of Tuscany.
Poggio Lucina spreads through 10 hectares of vineyards, of which 7 are located in Montalcino and 3 in Valdorcia. Two distinct areas that donate different characteristics to grapes and wine. a handmade harvest, a grapes selection in vineyard and then in the cellar, an aging in traditional big oak barrels and just some tonneaux and barriques which perfectly melts aromatic shades to obtain a nich, prestigious product. Then, what do you expect from from Brunello di Montalcino D.o.c.g. and Rosso di Montalcino D.o.c produced by Poggio Lucina? Other than the quality of these wines, which are produced by wise hands, you can also expect respect, honesty, family values and simplicity of people who love their origins and land.
