Wine Region: Tuscany, Italy
Sangiovese is the principal grape of Poggio al Leone, which reflects ripe, fleshy fruit. The vines, at an altitude of 150 meters above sea level, enjoy in this zone an ideal climate, with perfect exposure to the sun balanced by moderating sea breezes. Vinification begins with a cold pre-fermentation maceration followed by fermentation in stainless steel. This is followed by a minimum of 12 months of aging in barriques. Poggio al Leone is intense ruby red in color; a bouquet of ripe dark fruits and warm violets
Suggested food and wine pairing: Cured meats, pasta with ragout.
