Poggio La Noce

The Art of Tuscany
October 29, 2018

Friendly Dog  

Poggio La Noce is a property just outside of Florence on very rocky hills. It was founded by Enzo Schiari and Claire Beliard with the idea of featuring wines showing the best elegant qualities of Sangiovese.  The 2016 Poggio La Noce Giginohas just arrived. This is 100% old vine Sangiovese and is a remarkably beautiful expression.

            Gigino is from a small single vineyard called Vigna I Tulipani named after the hundreds of wild tulips that grow there. The total production of this wine is just 250 cases. Ours will be arriving in two shipments. One just arrived and the other will also have some of their amazing estate bottled olive oil.

            Everything produced on the estate is natural and organic including the dog Marcellino. It is worth a visit to Poggio La Noce just to meet him.

 

2016 Poggio La Noce Gigino:  Bright ruby. Notes of violets, cherries, blackberry, licorice and graphite in a frame of  youthful broad tannins. Everything is beautifully integrated and promises to age well.  Excellent  37/bottle

 

Special 6 pack: Six bottles of the above for a special price of $199

Special case: Twelve bottles of the above for a special price of $378
