Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Riserva D.O.C.G.
La Poiana was born in March 2013 when we realized the great quality of the wine we were producing out of our 2012 grape harvest. We decided to buy a new 25HL cask of French oak Allier and we have left the wine there to age till mid January 2016. La Poiana 2015 is our second vintage. The full bouquet of flavors and perfumes of our land is very well represented in our wine, which has 13,5% alcoholic strength. We have produced 3030 0,75lt bottles and 127 Mangum 1,5lt . The name comes from a couple of buzzards (Poiana in Italian) that have a nest on the trees nearby and love to fly over our vineyard.
Produced only in the best years, the Reserve is like the animal that represents: a rapacious wine, able to surprise you with the true essence of our Sangiovese. Like any good predator knows how to wait for the right moment, rests in casks of French Oak Allier for more than two years before being bottled.
Wearing a red robe, intense and full-bodied, at the nose arrive elegant aromas of plum and purple, and if you have patience for a while, you may feel spicy licorice and cloves.
Tasting is exciting, glides gently up to take us by surprise with an explosion of fruit in the center of our mouth, rich and persistent.
