About

94

"Bright medium ruby garnet color. Lively, fruity, herbal toasty nutty aromas of morello cherries, toasted chestnuts, dried herbs - straw, and gravel with a lively, dry full body and a warming, complex, medium-length finish with well-integrated, earthy, fine tannins and light oak. A classic example of Vino Nobile with great earthiness and balance."

92 Wine Spectator

"Rich and dense, with black cherry fruit and firm tannins, this red remains fresh and balanced. Ends with elements of tobacco, spice, licorice and leather. Can handle a grilled steak now, or braised meats with some bottle age. Best from 2016 through 2024. 2,500 cases made. -BS"

91 Monica Larner - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"The 2011 Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Poggio Stella opens to a deep ruby color and pretty aromas of black cherry, red currant and even a touch of candied apricot. The wine is smooth and clean with dark spice, tar and light brushes of licorice that wrap around the finish. The tannins are dry but they give a solid structural framework to the wine."

Product Description:

"Poggio Stella perfectly mirrors the evolution of the winery.

It is the line that has the characteristics of balance over time, tied to the principles of innovation, to combine quality with the demands of the market.

Ruby red with violet hues, with a bouquet that is full and persistent with notes of red berry and hints of brushwood. The flavour is harmonious, full-bodied and intense with a pleasing, tannic finish." - Winery
