An ever-stronger bond between the product, the territory and its history. THE ART OF BRUNELLO
Alessandra’s idea brought life to “The Art of Brunello” line by Poggio Rubino using exclusively designed labels that have been completely and individually painted and created by hand. As a work of art, every bottle is different from all the others showing distinct craftsmanship.
The label is covered with special meaning, and the product of the land is connected to its bottle, a union that is made possible through the packaging of absolute appeal. It features an original hand-made covering by Alessandra, who also studied design and art and who unites tradition, artistic journeys from the past, modernity and innovation in each studied stroke.
The innovation that characterizes the “Art of Brunello” line is the image that transforms the Poggio Rubino Brunello di Montalcino into a unique and prestigious collector’s piece that exalts the high quality of our wine.
The labels from the Art of Brunello line are made with techniques and materials that are a result of our accurate creative research and are entirely worked and painted by hand with 23 karat gold leaf finishing.
They are painted directly on the glass by brush using only selected colours and a fine gold leaf finish applied by hand on all the painted details with a natural glue.
The painting happens in three phases in which time is needed in order for the colour to dry and for the final application of the 23 karat gold used to define the golden details of the label.
The idea of hand-painted bottles with refined labels aims to establish the affinity between the packaging and its contents, between art and wine, making them one entity and rendering the Poggio Rubino Brunello di Montalcino a unique artisan product of great value reflecting the prestigious charm of the winery.
With ‘Arte del Brunello’ I create more than wine, I produce distinctive pieces of art that have Poggio Rubino’s signature.
I find inspiration in the land around me, the breathtaking Tuscan and Montalcino territory, this is where my creativity comes to life.
As work of art every bottle is different from all the others, showing distinctive craftsmanship.
The bottles are painted directly on the glass by brush and they’re dominated by hues of black and shades of burgundy with 23 karat gold leaf finishing applied entirely by hand.
I hand paint Brunello that let you drink a piece of art…
Painted bottles were produced in limited quantities on request and you can decide to write an inscription to make this bottle an unforgettable memory.

Climate: typically Mediterranean with precipitation concentrated in spring and autumn months. The location of our vineyards, the ventilation and the lack of fog guarantee the best conditions for vine vegetation and for the health of the grapes
Soil Composition: Particularly rocky soil made up of marl and alberese (clay, lime and rock) Shales
Variety: 100% Sangiovese select
Training System and Pruning: Horizontal cordon training with short pruning, 4 to 5 spurs with maximum of2 buds per plant which allows for a low yield per hectare, 50 to 60 quintals of grapes
Cultivation Techniques: are entirely done by hand with particular care and attention to the winter pruning, the selection of shoots and the thinning out of the grapes
Harvest: end of September - first days of October
Vinification: the grapes are vinified separately in steel vats.
The fermentation is temperature controlled between 24° and 26° with a long maceration of the grapes, which, with frequent pumping over of the cap and délestage, allow for the extraction of polyphenols from the skins which has an important function in the longevity and quality of the wine.
Drawing off: soft pressing to separate the skins from the wine
Ageing: three years, instead of only two required by the disciplinary, in 25 to 32 hl oak barrels and at least one year in the bottle.
