Press and Tasting Notes

This Super Tuscan field blend is the perfect overachiever in quality with a grossly understated price. Made of mostly Sangiovese with a bit of Merlot (for plum and silky finish) Poggialupi is sourced from vineyards around the Chianti Classico region.

THE REVIEW

There is nothing like a little rain (not to mention an impending hurricane and random acts of Mother Nature) to make us want to reach for some comfort food. Whether it's tomato based pasta or pizza, we have the perfect little rainy day red for your enjoyment.
    We recently tried Rodano's Poggialupi, a beautiful Super Tuscan field blend that is a huge overachiever in quality with a grossly understated price.
    Like all great traditional Sangiovese-based wines, Rodano's Poggialupi offers up lovely, bright acidity that adds freshness and focus on the palate. Given its balance, it makes an outstanding partner to tomato based cuisine.
    While waiting for your Brunellos and Riserva Chiantis to age, grace your table with Rodano's Poggialupi. A blend of 90% Sangiovese and 10% Merlot, the wine offers classic Chianti acidity, cracked peppercorn, hints of mocha, a deep cherry and red berry core, and a wonderfully silky finish of plum - clearly a byproduct of the Merlot.
    Enjoy with your next pasta or pizza dish. Don't forget to add a few wedges of Parmigiano-Reggiano to start.Read More »
