90 Points - Decanter (2021)

"Michael Schmelzer crafts two annata. Sangió comes from a vineyard purchased in 2018 which he is converting to organic. It sits above Panzano – between 400 and 550 metres – on shale and calcareous sandstone. While dense and compact, it expresses cool tones of red fruit and pleasantly bitter blood orange as it opens up. The tannins are chalky in texture and firm, amplified by citrussy acidity. It takes its time to unfold, so give it a few more months in the bottle."

About the Producer

From the high hills of Panzano, above Dario, Michael Schmelzer had been visiting the owner of this vineyard since 2014 and trying to convince the owner to rent the vineyard to him. In 2018…the owner finally relented and offered to sell the plot to Schmelzer.

The estate name, Monte Bernardi, dates back to 1085. The vineyards are comprised of a third of which is over 40 years old, a third over 13 years and a third under 10 years, with the first wine produced in 1992. Previously the grapes were sold to neighbouring farms. The Schmelzer family purchased Monte Bernardi in 2003 and has since invested great amounts of time, love and money in the vineyards, the winery and villa.
