Poderi dal Nespoli
91 points, Book of the Best Italian Wines
The name of this wine celebrates the historical village of Nespoli where the winery was founded in 1929 and where the production of its wines, from the vineyards to the glass, still continues today.
This Sangiovese has an intense red ruby color and demonstrates a well-structured and ripe character. It is a wine of great complexity combining typical marasca cherry, blackberry and plum notes of the Sangiovese variety together with notes of licorice and roasted coffee beans which come from the aging in French barrique, following by stainless steel tanks. A touch of vanilla is coming from the wise but modest use of American oak. Soft and warm, with well-balanced tannins, it has an excellent potential for ageing.
Venison, game, beef cheek braised with Nespoli wine, grilled T-bone steak, seasoned hard cheese. Serve at 18° C
