TASTING NOTES

A dark and rich expression of earth and black fruits, laced with crushed stone minerality and hints of sour citrus. There are depths of silky textures here yet also a lifted and cooling feel to the expression, giving way to zesty wild berries, savory spice, mint and inner florals. It’s classically structured and showing only a glimpse of what’s to come after time in the cellar, leaving an impression of poise and purity. The Poggio al Granchio is a gorgeous expression of the vintage,

Eric Guido, Vinous.

A dusty and mineral start to this, followed by dried lavender, smoke and truffle. It's full-bodied and juicy with a wealth of ripe cherries, wild strawberries and lemon peel. Ripe tannins. Tight and polished. 

James Suckling, jamessuckling.com

Aromas of roasted coffee bean, licorice and menthol form the nose along with hints of rose petal. Full bodied and elegantly structured, the smooth, enveloping palate features sour cherry, blood orange, espresso, star anise and toasted hazelnut set against tightly knit, fine-grained tannins. 

Kerin O'Keefe, Wine Enthusiast.
