IL Poggione 2013 Rosso di Montalcino (DOC), $22.09-$25.99, 91 points, poured a crystalline cranberry red with a broad clear wine ring at the leggy glass bowl.
Aromatic red raspberry, violets, and red cherry with hints of strawberry were excellent.
Medium-bodied with bright acidity, a firm underlayment of tannin, and juicy red fruit were appropriately structured and flavorful.
Finished long on the trailing palate, red licorice, soft expressions of warm spices, and a well-integrated 14% alcohol.
Not nearly as tannic, complex, or as dry as the recently reviewed IL Poggione 2011 Brunello Di Montalcino, but delicious it was.
Paired perfectly with our cheese pizza and chef salad.
