Poggio Argentiera Morellino di Scasano Bellamarsilia 2003

Winemaker's Notes:

"A selection of the best Sangiovese (c. 95%) and Alicante (5%), mostly from 25-year-old vines, a minor percentage from the newer plantations. Maceration lasts approximately 3 weeks, with frequent pumpovers and délestages, and temperature-controlled fermentation. Malolactic takes place in 1st and 2nd-use barriques (almost exclusively French Allier), where the wine sojourns about 13 months. A full-bodied, gorgeously extracted, elegant blockbuster that carries its unusual name very well… for ”capatosta” is southern Italian slang for ”stubborn” (Gianpaolo’s whimsical tribute to his father) "

Fruit-forward with a good tannic backbone and some Italian earth to balance it out. Dark ruby color in the glass dominated by red fruit. Short finish. OK wine, but could do better for the price.
