Azienda Agricola Eugenio Rosi Poiema 2007

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

2007 Poiema Marzemino Barrel Sample -Slavonian Oak – This is made in the governo style with Marzemino wine refermented with grapes that had been dried for 4 weeks. Approximately 40% of the grapes are dried- A bit too woody at this point with smoky notes of mace, but there seems to be very jewel-like fruit lying at the core. The tannins on the palate are a bit woody and drying but the fine acids support lovely dark berry fruits. Still very early for this wine and tough to judge but if the wood is absorbed there is good promise here. (86-90pts) 2007 Poiema Marzemino Barrel Sample– Ageing in Cherry wood that had been used to store Cabernet for 2 months, to soak up some of the youthful wood character. The fruit for this bottling comes from the Zeresi Vineyard just outside the village of Volano. A great source for Marzemino but as is so often the case, a vineyard whose boundaries have recently been expanded to include a large parcel of vines outside the traditional area. A very fine and intense nose of beeswax, incense and earth frames sweet and spicy red currant fruit that offers great purity. In the mouth the tannins are very, very fine and the acidity offers great cut yielding a jewel-like, faceted mouthfeel. The flavors mimic the nose with rather assertive wood tones that are in the earthy, balsamic, dried baking spice register and serve to show off the rich core of fruit well though there is just a hint of oxidation creeping in here. None-the-less very complex and layered if too youthful to give a complete picture. (90-94pts)

Here is a bottle that has had the time to integrates and the nose speaks intensely of Marzemino with a huge, fragrant floral note over the slightly astringent red fruits which recall pomegranate seeds. In the mouth it is big and layered with a sweet core of wild berry fruit gentle edged with a touch of shaved bakers chocolate and a very sharp mineral note. There is a touch of oxidation here that adds complexity to the wine and a bit of aromatic spice that recalls poppy seeds in the mouth with a fine finish that is perhaps just a but short. Excellent and pure Marzemino with power and grave. Very well done 90pts
