About

91

"A red with dark fruit and spicy undertones. Some dried lavender. Medium body, chewy tannins. Flavorful finish. Drink now."

91 International Wine Report

"...begins with fresh aromatics of cherries and dried berries, spices, leather and walnut along with hints of tobacco and fresh cut florals. On the palate this is medium-full and beautifully textured, with silky tannins and a lovely core of red fruits and spices, as it shows excellent balance through the finish. This is drinking remarkably well right now."

90 Tastings.com (Beverage Testing Institute)

"Brown brick red color. Vegetal aromas of minestrone, roasted beets, dried oregano and savory, black garlic, and black fig with a supple, vibrant, dryish light-to-medium body and an even, stimulating, medium-length basalt, black tea, and ground pepper finish with chewy, crunchy tannins and light oak flavor. A light-bodied, savory red with a big pop of food-friendly acidity."

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
