    August 15, 2020 - Sadly more than half of the bottles I purchased had issues. Would not buy again due to this inconsistency.

    May 2, 2020 - Bit of a last minute decision to open it but worth it.

    Classic Tuscan flavours (morello cherries and all that) but with hints of sloes and even rich fruit cake in there too. Nose was slightly closed (and stayed that way) but there were some tobacco notes in there, maybe even some cinnamon. Perhaps getting towards the end of its life but still a lot of fruit, even if in the dried fruit end of the spectrum. Excellent length

    September 12, 2017 - Tart cherry and tobacco with soft tannins. No burn from the alcohol. This wine is on the dryer side and was very good alongside lasagna

    March 17, 2017 - Wow. This is FULLY mature. This is the second poggione that has made a sudden lurch towards maturity, the Rosso '10 showing earthy cherries, mushrooms, broken down flavours and forest floor. This is VERY soft, though the nose doesn't show it with a sharpness that doesn't come through on the palate. It is interesting that this is so at the end of its life; it still had plenty of acidity and tart fruit a year ago but this has practically collapsed. Not to say it isn't lovely - it is. But clearly, this is in its last throws and further cellaring would be a waste. 91

    September 3, 2016 - beautiful rosso, soft tannins and still some decent acids. The red fruit and a little garrigue are well integrated. At the background floral notes, cedar wood a little balsamico and minerality. Hold max two years.
