    Wow! Possibly the best Rosso that staff and customer favorite Poggiarellino has ever made, and that's saying a lot of this classic producer. And what a value! Showing an earthy elegance, this has lovely herbal aromas plus cranberry fruit, followed by more rustic leather notes. It's bright and firmly structured, yet easygoing enough to drink now. A crowd pleaser with pedigree, Poggiarellino's 2016 shows concentrated fruit balanced by lifted acid, and will be great with food. Try it tonight, and buy a case for later - you won't regret it.​

    For lovers of Brunnello di Montalcino ,or even Chianti, the Rosso di Montalcino wines are a good value. Ready to drink now, this 2016 Poggiarellino has bright dark cherry flavors and a subtle hint of black pepper. This medium bodied wine is all packaged with a nice balance between the fruit and acid components . It is delicious, a pleasure to drink and opens up after about 30 minutes . Best with food, it will go well with pasta, pizza, pork and even beef.

    This light bodied Rosso from Poggiarellino is a dream, Dried cherry and white peppercorn dominate the refreshing palette and it’s always a struggle to figure out where the rest of the bottle went after, “just a glass or two.” Perfect for the late afternoon glass before dinner or with a ton of different meals, The Poggiarellino is great for a party or anytime you want a group of people to walk away pleased. I don’t say this lightly, but this is my favorite bottle in the store right now and I’m sure you’ll be in to buy a second or third after you first try it!

    When it comes to our Italian direct imports, Poggiarellino tends to be my favorite. Their 2016 Rosso di Montalcino is definitely a solid every dayer and quite possibly my new favorite pizza wine... The fruit is super concentrated and the acidity is vibrant and lovely. Definitely worth a whirl.

    Classic Sangiovese from Montalcino, the 2016 Poggiarellino exhibits stunning minerality and bright bing cherry notes, possesses energetic breadth on the palate, and finishes very clean with soft, but present tannins. This Rosso is the perfect wine to accompany any meal and suit your social needs.

    Woohooo !!2016 !! O.K., I LOVE this wine, I think the best they ever made ( I say that every year and every year it gets better). This is old world Rosso, leather, spice, cranberry and lots of minerals and Tuscan dust and soft tannins on the very long finish.At fifteen bucks this will go fast, you are fairly warned!!!

    This is one of the earlier 2016 Rossos to arrive on our sales floor and if it's any indication of things to come, this vintage shows great promise. Poggiarellino's 2016 is pleasantly aromatic, concentrated and a bit lower in alcohol than most of late. It's definitely an excellent wine to pair with food as it trades a bit more acidity for slightly less forward fruit and offers plenty of length as well. Great to open today with ample aeration yet wil cellar nicely for a couple of years.
