"I absolutely enjoyed the 2015 Poggio Valente. This pure expression of Sangiovese really hits all the right buttons. The wine is rich and long-lasting with ripe fruit intensity followed by bold aromas of cherry, blackberry, grilled herb and moist earth. The bouquet is exuberant and bright. The wine shows a medium build that builds steadily in length, power and volume." (WA)

Winery Notes:
Wine Description:
The Poggio Valente vineyard-planted with four different clones of Sangiovese-represents Elisabetta Geppetti’s commitment to the Sangiovese grape. A small amount of Merlot is blended to add body and a lush character to this cru wine.

Tasting Notes:
Deep ruby red in color with purple hues. The nose has concentrated aromas of red and black cherries, blackberries, licorice, vanilla, and hints of sage and violets. The palate is rich and plush with delicious dark berry and vanilla flavors with ripe tannins and a pleasantly savory finish.

Food pairing:
This wine is the perfect match for a local specialty-cinghiale alla maremmana in umido or wild boar stew.
