Il Poggiolo Rodolfo Cosimi Oltre Terra Rosa 2015
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Brunello di Montalcino|
|Brand||Il Poggiolo Rodolfo Cosimi|
Body of this wine comes from the Brunello clone of Sangiovese, while the Merlot adds a bit of "sweetness" to the nose and finish.
The “Il Poggiolo” estate was established in Montalcino in 1971 by Roberto Cosimi; Roberto’s son, Rodolfo (Rudy), along with wife Cecilia, now own and operate the estate since Roberto’s death in 1989. In 1994 Rudy purchased the six-acre Terra Rossa vineyard to contrast the traditional-style wines made at Il Poggiolo. Terra Rossa Brunellos were designed, beginning from the first vintage, with a more modern interpretation of Brunello di Montalcino. The Terra Rossa wines are made at the same facility as the Il Poggiolo wines, just in a different fashion. The Terra Rossa Oltre is a Montalcino super Tuscan, an 80/20 blend of Sangiovese Grosso and Merlot; it is smooth, inky, and rich, with a palate of black currants, huckleberries, brown spices, minerals, and black cherries.
