"Poggio Abate" is a special Brunello di Montalcino with some unique characteristics; it is made from the best vineyards located near the famous Sant'Antimo Abbey. With a deep ruby red color, with a bouquet of black cherries and red berries, it has a more complex level for the balance of vanilla and tabacco notes, through the use of barriques.
It is excellent with roast and stewed red meats, roasted game and aged cheese.
"This is a wine with beautiful clarity of fruit with plum, blackberry and dark chocolate character. Full body, with velvety tannins and a long finish. So great now. But will improve with age."
"There’s a sassy, spicy quality here, with clove and spice, cola, root beer and black licorice. Smooth, dark extraction with bold structure."
"The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Poggio Abate is endowed with serious depth in its dark berries, smoke, licorice and tobacco. It is a decidedly muscular wine gifted with serious concentration and firm, tight tannins. Savory herbs, licorice and tar wrap around the powerful finish. It will be interesting to see how the 2006 Riserva ages, but it is likely to always be somewhat of a brute. 92+"

"A ripe style, offering floral, cherry, balsamic and underbrush notes. Slightly pruny, yet complex and firm, turning tight on the finish. Best from 2015 through 2025."

Tuscany is also home to the indigenous Italian grape variety, Sangiovese. Most of the wine coming from Tuscany is made from some clone of this...Read More About Tuscany
Sangiovese (SAHN-gee-oh-VAY-zee) Blood of Jove (literally translated) The principal grape of Chianti - in fact, the principle grape of all of Tuscany - has had its ups and downs. For a stint in the 70s and 80s, wines labeled Chianti contained cheap red wine packaged in a straw casked bottle, most popular for the candle holder it would become. But no more. Sangiovese re...Read More About Sangiovese
