2020 Poggio San Polo Rubio Toscana IGT
Brilliant ruby red in color, with purplish glints. The bouquet is intense and persistent with fresh aromas of red cherries, violets and blackcurrants, followed by subtle spicy notes. Well-structured and balanced with satisfying tannins and aromatic persistence. The nuances of forest fruits and cherries which are typical of the grape variety make it easy to drink, yet still intense and elegant.
2020 vintage began with mild temperatures and a rather dry winter, leading to early budding. Snowfall episodes during spring, especially at the end of April, slowed the growth of the shoots, restoring temporal equilibrium for the subsequent phenological phases. In May, during flowering, the plants had well-developed leaf walls. The dry summer triggered a conservative development of the vines thanks to which they did not show symptoms of water and thermal stress. The harvest began at the end of August, with a sunny and dry climate.
James Suckling, 90 points
Vibrant cherries, thyme and roasted herbs on the nose are followed by a medium-bodied palate full of juicy red cherries. Firm and fine-grained on the palate with lots of plums and berries. Pure and fruit-expressive.
