James Suckling - Jamessuckling.com:

"Rich cherry, stone, bitter chocolate and lavender. Modern-style, polished winemaking. Chewy tannins and a full body, but needs time. A little chewy. Wonderful structure. Pure cabernet sauvignon. Best ever. Better in 2016."

Antonio Galloni - Vinous:

"A gorgeous entry-level wine, the 2012 Poggio Al Lupo jumps from the glass, showing terrific energy throughout. Dark red and black cherries, grilled rosemary, smoke, tobacco, incense, cedar and saddle leather meld into the super-expressive finish. What a pretty and nuanced wine this is."

Product Description:

"Located in the Maremma region of Tuscany, Poggio al Lupo is a great estate that spans 115 acres (35 which are planted). In 1999, Antonio Moretti purchased the property for its beautiful coastal terroir that features pockets of soil rich in clay and others rich in gravel and fine stones. The principal Poggio al Lupo vineyard is a southerly hillside vineyard rising 330 feet above sea level. Grapes were hand harvested and during fermentation, the wine macerated for 25 days, followed by malolactic fermentation. The wine aged 18 months in 100% new French Allier barriques and 6 months in the bottle before release." -Importer
