Colle Santa Mustiola Poggio ai Chiari Sangiovese Toscana IGT 2011
Stunningly complex, perfumed, and structured, the 2011 Poggio al Chiari is elegance captured in a bottle. Pure, transparent Sangiovese fruits are framed with new saddle leather, pressed wild herbs, black licorice, violet petals, baking spices, and fistfuls of crushed minerals. Tannins are firm but silky, while vibrant acidity, compact dry extract, and abundant minerals provide the structure that will make this wine age gorgeously over the long haul. This is top-tier Sangiovese!
