Poggioargentiera Poggioraso Cabernet Franc 2018, Tuscany, Italy
We are going to keep writing about heavy strong tasting wines in July, but this time we are going to Italy to the famous Tuscany area. Though the tuscany area is best known for it´s Chianti, Brunello and „Super Tuscany“ wines, some producers like to make wines that are a little different. The wine of the month is different in that it uses 100% Cabernet Franc, which is very rare to do, not only in Tuscany but all over the world!
The aroma is open and has a strong oak, coffee and black cherries. The palate is dry and rich with tannins giving a ripe black cherry, vanilla, coffee and dark chocolate taste first and foremost. Back peppers and alcohol dominate the heavy and long after taste. It´s possible to drink the wine now, but I would suggest decanting it and let it breath for at least an hour before drinking. Definetly a wine for heavy and filling meat courses with beef or lamb. This price is 4.989 kr.
