Poggioanima belial

Sangiovese, "Belial" 2016

Poggio Anima

High toned aromas. Lovely floral, laurel and sage nuances add to the bright cherry and raspberry aromas. Bright and fresh, with flavors of red cherry and flinty red berries with a touch of sweet pipe tobacco. There are no bells and whistles here, just pure Sangiovese fruit. This is 100% Sangiovese sourced from a single vineyard near Siena, in the Chianti Colli Senesi zone. The 'Belial' puts the 'super' in Supertuscan and certainly at this price. Winemaker, Riccardo Campinoti is a firm believer that the wine is made in the vineyard and when he found this one with mature vines (25-45 years of age) he knew he had something special.
