K&L Notes

There were many highlights during our recent spring travels in Italy, and our visit to Poggio Salvi remains among the fondest. The winery is nestled in a picturesque forested area on the south side of Montalcino where the combination of clay soils and Tyrrhenian Sea breezes create ideal terroir for their outstanding Sangiovese. The estate has been owned and operated by Pierluigi Tagliabue since 1979, with a very simple philosophy: “traditional wines produced with modern methods.” Through judicious farming, minimal intervention in the winery and aging in large Slavonian oak casks, Poggio Salvi is producing wines of exceptional character and purity. What truly impressed us is that, no matter the vintage, their wines remained excellent across the board. Much credit goes to Tagliabue’s grandson, Luca Belingardi, who is currently in charge of winemaking. We had the privilege of tasting through their current releases and are pleased to offer the latest arrivals from this storied winery. (John Downing, K&L)

    Old school, classic Sangiovese from Montalcino! Red cherry, hints of rose, iron, warm leather, wet gravel, baking spices, with medium plus acidity and medium tannin. I want to drink this with a Pork Ragu, Cinghale risotto or a big fat steak. I love this wine!

    The 2014 vintage was one of the more difficult for vintners in Italy of late, and many in the wine world have been quick to write it off in favor of others. However, after having tasted so many successful wines from this year, we’re looking forward to offering a number of outstanding 2014s. Due to the cool weather, Poggio Salvi took extra steps in the vineyards to ensure that only the best grapes were harvested for their wines, which is why this Rosso is so good. We expected to find a least a touch of herbal or green aromas, but instead were treated to a fragrant bouquet of bright strawberries with a pleasant hint of earthiness. The wine is bright, vibrant and lively, with a nice zip of acidity and plenty of delicious red fruit on the finish. Pair this with pastas, meats and cheeses.
