Poggio alle Sughere 2008 Morellino di Scansano, $14.44-$18.99, 91 points appeared in the glass as burgundy red to ruby in color with a broad clear wine ring at the glass.
Bright and profuse aromas of red cherry, cedar, coffee, floral notes, earth, and anise blossomed and wafted from the glass.
This near full bodied Sangiovese wine (90% with 10% Cabernet Sauvignon) exceled in the acid category with smooth to silky tannin.
Floral flavors dominated, but the palate followed the nose faithfully.
Finishes long on menthol and spice.
