50/50 Barbera and Bonarda. 1 year in large barrel. 18 months in SS and then a leisurely 5+ years in bottle before release. Again for Poggio, expressive, dusty tannin. Good lick of acid to lift the earthiness. Still plenty of fruit considering the good age on her. Beautiful wine.
Andrea is part of the talented new-wave winemaking community in Emilia-Romagna and their fame partly eminates from the international success of wineries such as La Stoppa. They are of the same breed, ethos and 'familia' of winemakers and have built a strong community of natural winemakers who share experience, knowlege and I'm sure a few good bottles too.
Made from just 4 hectares, the wines of Vino del Poggio are known for their passion, character and patience. They are wines that are full of character but have been given time to become their best selves before release.
