Il Pogio Sangiovese (2009)
Sangiovese originally achieved fame inside straw covered Chianti fiasci that later graced countless college students’ tables as candle holders.
Il Poggio is considered by many to produce some of the best wines of Emilia Romagna. They all come from Cesari family vineyards.
The wine never touches oak either. That would only cover up the strawberry and cherry flavors, which would be a shame! Il Poggio is just the thing to go with pizza, spaghetti in marinara sauce or even baked ziti.
That doesn’t mean you can’t serve it with fancier dishes though. Sangiovese’s natural acidity makes it an ideal wine for the table.
Sangiovese makes quaffable wines that are bright and fruity and Il Poggio is no exception. The aromatic bouquet is highlighted with strawberry and red cherry. Vivid flavors of red fruit fuse with darker, earthy, smoky, tobacco notes when you taste it. Il Poggio is drier on the finish than the St. George Cabernet with more verve and zippy acidity characteristic of Sangiovese.
