About the Wine Maker
We have grown to love these great wines as they are so well made. The challenge with some Italian producers (and most others) is the variance in quality between wines, brands and labels, but with this producer they are all consistently good. The range is produced by Le Ragnaie situated in Montalcino in Tuscany, and is a joint venture with Vine Street Imports in the USA and other premium producers in Italy.
Owned by Riccardo and Jennifer Campinoti who are the custodians of farm land dating back to 1700, their three vineyards are now all organically grown and are now famous for their Brunello wine made with Sangiovese. But thats another story.
About the Wine
This is 100% Montepulciano, sourced from a steep (for Abruzzi standards) vineyard facing southeast toward the sea.
Poggio Anima Montepulciano is bright ruby red, with aromas of strawberry and raspberry. In the mouth it is juicy, spicy, and meaty with an amazing floral lift flavour on the palate.
Drink with good friends, hide it from bad friends and be selfish. Food doesn’t matter, does it?
