(90% Sangiovese, 10% Colorino) The IGT Toscana "Rosso di Sera" is the ace of the Poggiopiano team. Made with the best selections of Sangiovese and Colorino. The family uses restored cement tanks from the early twentieth century for the winemaking process. A persistent ruby red, full-bodied, with masses of super-ripe dark fruit layered with scents of new leather, graphite, and French oak. Also offers tastes ranging from vanilla beautifully structured, with blackberry, chocolate, and black pepper.
"I was quite taken with Poggiopiano’s 2006 Rosso di Sera, (90% Sangiovese, 10% Colorino). This opaque, full-bodied red flows with masses of super-ripe dark fruit layered with scents of new leather, graphite and French oak. The wine possesses superb density and richness in a full-bodied, intense style. The tannins from the oak remain rather firm and unyielding at this stage, but in a few years’ time the 2006 Rosso di Sera should begin strutting its stuff. The long, polished finish is that of a first-class wine. This is a remarkable effort from Poggiopiano."
The Wine Advocate
"Very ripe and rich, with coffee, berry and raspberry pie aromas. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins and lots of fruit. This is long and mouthpuckering, Very extracted. Slightly overdone. Needs some bottle to mellow. Sangiovese and Colorino. Best after 2010."
