Poggio Bonelli 'Poggiassai' Toscana IGT Red Blend 2016

Overview: The 2016 Poggio Bonelli 'Poggiassai' emerges from the picturesque landscapes of Tuscany, a region renowned for its innovative spirit within the Italian wine panorama. As a Toscana IGT, this red blend embodies the freedom and creativity that have come to define the prestigious 'Super Tuscan' category. Crafted in an area unbound by the stringent rules of more traditional appellations, 'Poggiassai' is a testament to the artistic expression of its makers, marrying local and international varietals to produce a wine of exceptional depth and complexity.

Sensory Description: The 2016 'Poggiassai' dazzles the senses with a vibrant ruby-red hue. It offers a rich bouquet of warm, penetrating aromas, including ripe red fruits, blueberries, and a subtle hint of leather. These initial impressions gracefully lead to more complex layers of medicinal and Mediterranean herbs, notably characteristics of the Cabernet Sauvignon grown in this region. The palate is graced with a balanced and elegant tannic structure, evolving complexity as it matures, promising further unfolding of flavors with age.

The Winemaker's Background: Poggio Bonelli holds a prestigious position in the Chianti Classico zone, with vineyards sprawling across the sand and tufa-clay soils of the Tuscan hills. With a deep commitment to tradition and innovation, the winery excels in expressing the unique terroir of its estate while embracing modern techniques to enhance the intrinsic qualities of each varietal.

Serving Suggestions: This rich Tuscan blend is ideally served at approximately 64°F, making it a perfect complement to hearty dishes such as Bistecca alla Fiorentina, steamed pork spare ribs with black beans, or a comforting confit duck with sweet potato mash. Its robust profile and sophisticated depth make it an excellent choice for savoring alongside aged cheeses during a contemplative evening.
