Poggio Scalette Il Carbonaione 1999
Other Red Blends from Tuscany, Italy
Intense Ruby red in color. The wine has an ample bouquet dominated by the scent of blackberries and currant. This is a full bodied, warm, rich wine loaded with character. The tannins are balanced, soft yet full of vitality supporting a persistent and lingering finish. Recommended with red meats such as Bistecca alla Fiorentina (grilled T-bone). Also a great match for venison and aged cheeses.
Poggio Scalette Winery
The vineyards of Podere Poggio Scalette take their name from the landscape, which is characterized by drystone walls that support the terraces on which the vineyards and olive groves are planted. From a distance the impression is of a series of stairs climbing the slopes of Greve. After the death of the previous owner, Podere Poggio Scalette remained abandoned for years until Vittorio Fiore (one of Italy's most famed winemakers) and his wife Adriana discovered the property in 1991.
