2016 Tenuta Il Poggione Rosso di Montalcino 

2016 Tenuta Il Poggione Rosso di Montalcino 

Keepin’ it classy today with a nice lil’ Rosso. Red currants, cherries, plums, spices, and nutmeg on the nose. Similar yummy notes on the palate. What else could you possibly want from a Rosso? Stay thirsty, friends!

This rose-gold beauty is truly the stuff of which dreams are made. Oh boy – so much loveliness and juiciness on the nose – light red fruit jam on toasted brioche bread, Ispahan (my humom’s favorite dessert of all time), hint of framboise cordial, whiff of Paris-Ginza tea, and marzipan. Juicy red fruit initially on the palate bursting with raspberries and forest berries. Mid-palate, it gets even better as the fruit is now layered on brioche. Oh my dog, this is good stuff. Yum. Happy New Year, everybody! May 2018 be a lot better than 2017…
