Poggio all Guardia

Rocca di Frasinello 'Poggio alla Guardia' 2005 Maremma, Toscana $30/btl.

A brilliant new discovery from Southern Tuscany: Rocca di Frasinello has partnered with Bordeaux monolith Chateau Lafite-Rothschild to craft a 'super-tuscan' of depth and intensity that rivals other wines costing four times as much. Blended from Cabernet, Merlot and Sangioveto, Poggio Guardia shows loads of ripe black fruit (cassis, blackberry) and refined texture that drinks immediately and will continue to improve in your cellar for the next 5-7yrs. As a testament to the impeccable quality of fruit derived from these vineyards, the wine was never aged in oak and exhibits a natural structural harmony that is most seductive (and unusual).
