ColleMassari Montecucco Sangiovese Riserva "Poggio Lombrone" DOCG 2013
Having a BBQ? Fancy impressing your friends with a smooth and multi-faceted wine originating from the best Sangiovese vineyard in southern Tuscany? Look no further. Poggio Lombrone is the one.
Delicate and savoury, this is a complex and elegant Sangiovese. Dark ruby red. Opens with an enveloping and clean cherry bouquet, with violet and a sweet spiciness. Notes of liquorice, tobacco and oak spices layer pure fruit flavours for yummy drinking. Rich and juicy on the palate with the perfect integration of velvety tannins and acidity. Closes in a long, persistent finish with a pleasant mineral sensation.
Fun Fact: The name of the wine refers to single vineyard "Poggio Lombrone" and is produced from old vines of Sangiovese (20–50 years old) located on a ridge overlooking the Ombrone river valley.
A wine originating from the best Sangiovese vineyard at 300 metres above sea level. The vineyards are organic and rigorously cultivated, resulting in small yields of only 60 quintals per hectare. Grapes are hand-picked and alcoholic fermentation takes place in open conical wooden vats. Long period of malolactic fermentation in 40 hl-oak barrels for 18 months, before 12 months of refinement in bottle.
