Winemaker's Notes

Poggio al Lupo is deep, opaque purple in color suggesting its considerable intensity and extraction. The heady aromas deliver jammy black berry fruit and cassis impressions wiht notes of balsam wood and cedar which are confirmed on a palate of great silky voluptuousness. The finish is long, penetrating and seductive.

Critical Acclaim

"Fascinating aromas of blackberry, cedar, tea and red licorice lead to a full body, with firm, polished tannins and a fresh finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Alicante and Petit Verdot. Best after 2012"
93 Points

"Poggio Al Lupo is a super Tuscan blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Alicante and Petit Verdot that delivers loads of chocolate fudge, spice, mature fruit and sweet tobacco. The wine is soft, smoot and makes a perfect companion to succulent meat dishes."
92 Points

"Antonio Moretti purchased this property in the Morellino di Scansano zone in 1999. The wine is predominantly cabernet sauvignon (70 percent) blended with equal parts alicante and petit verdot, which together seem to capture the lean, aristocratic, tannic profile of the more traditional varieties of Tuscany. It's delicate and perfumed, melding sweet red fruit with savory tannin. The layers of flavor will develop with bottle age, though it would drink well now with pappardelle and rabbit ragù."
91 Points

"The 2007 Poggio al Lupo, from the estate’s vineyards in Maremma, shows the typical warmth and generosity of the wines from the Tuscan coast. Dark red fruit, espresso, mocha and spices come together nicely in this rich, textured offering. Only the slightly drying tannins and a slight sense of heaviness prevent the score from moving higher. Poggio al Lupo is Cabernet Sauvignon, Alicante and Petit Verdot. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2017."

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon

(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes. Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity. Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...
