Organic, hand-picked, low-yield Super-Tuscan - 100% Cabernet Franc. This is Castello Poggiarello's flagship wine.
The wine has great dark fruit and offers leather, tobacco, juniper, liquorice and cocoa - quite a mouthful!
Super-Tuscan wines like Sassicaia are selling at £100 plus per bottle! With this small grower (only 8 hectares), you get similar wine for £75.00 less! Are the likes of Tignanello so much better wines? - they're certainly well-branded!
Iron rich, rocky soil and great exposition to the sun make for the perfect conditions for the ripest grapes.
Drink now or in 10 or more years. Goes beautifully with meat dishes, ripe or aged cheese. Equally great with simple Mediterrannean food or the finest cuts - the choice is yours!
