2011 FATTORIA RODANO POGGIALUPI
Leather, smoke, minerals and earth compose this vivid Rosso Toscano that unlike most, relies on power, instead of finesse. Grainy tannins and hints of chocolatey oak, lilac and dry black cherries, aim towards a medium-to-full palate that emerges from this blend of Sangiovese and Merlot. Perfect with braised red meats, robust, or spicy Italian dishes, this red will hold up well for those who demand rusticity in their wine. Rated 90 Points by Wine Director.
