Wine Profile

Ratings Rated 92 Points Wine Advocate - "The 2008 Poggio Valente is without question one of the successes of the vintage. Dark cherries, leather, licorice and tobacco are some of the notes that take shape in the glass as this cool, vibrant wine reveals its impeccable, refined personality. This mid-weight Poggio Valente reflects the cool nature of the year in a beautifully balanced, harmonious style. The 2008 Poggio Valente is 97% Sangiovese and 3% Merlot that spent 15 months in French oak barrels, 40% new and 60% 2 year-old. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2020."
Production Notes Composed of mostly Sangiovese with some Merlot for balance. Fermentation occurs in stainless steel where the malolactic takes place. The wine then matures in large oak barrels for 15 months before being released the following January 5th.
Winemaker Notes Of an intense ruby red colour with orange reflections which denote the evolution of Sangiovese throughout the years. The perfumes vary from fragrances of violet, redcurrant and cherry, to then open up to notes of liquorice, tobacco and nutmeg. The wine’s taste has an elegant structure, the tannins are well complex and the wine has an embracing body. Long persistence and elevated pleasantness which are accompanied by an aftertaste of red fruits and aromas.
Food Pairing Notes Excellent with any meal, it finds its best expression combined with exquisite meats or with elaborately cooked wild fowl.
