Poggiotondo Rosso Toscana 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Lots of sandalwood and a little cedar greet the nose followed by floral notes and small black fruits. This seems quite sweet from the wood, though it does show some nice talc notes balancing out the vanilla. Fairly rich on entry, this has good acidity and nice ripe tannins in the mouth, though the back end here seems a bit weighty and extracted. Some cut peach tones add detail to the black cherry fruited mid-palate, but the tannins clamp down on the back end and render the finish rather short and bitter. There is some nice fruit here, accented with herb and bitter almond, but the extraction makes this a bit matte. 83pts

A more full-bodied style with rich, tart fruit and underlying layers of bitter espresso. The blend definitely adds some heft to the Sangiovese.
