Podere Le Poggiarelle 2005 Carmignano Italy

A classic Italian gem from the Carmignano Hills of Tuscany, the Podere Le Poggiarelle 2005 Carmignano is classified as one of the most prestigious and sought-after DOCG red wines in Italy today. Made with the finest selection of grapes, this is a traditional, classic style Carmignano blend of Sangiovese (70%), Cabernet Sauvignon (15%), Canaiolo (10%), and Merlot (5%). Deep ruby red in color with a full, rich body, this Carmignano’s bouquet is well structured with great intensity and persistence. The aging in French oak barriques brings a perfect marriage of red ripe fruit flavors, wild berries, vanilla and spice and there is a nice presence of tannins that linger on the long, pleasant finish. Try pairing with roasted or gilled meats and savory pasta dishes. [+]
