The first review of our Il Poggione Brancato 2014 came out yesterday on the wine blog, Bigger Than Your Head. Blogger Fredric Koeppel compared some of his favorite rosés this year and Il Poggione's Brancato came out very well!
Here is some of what he wrote:
"Il Poggione Brancato 2014, Rosato di Toscana, Italy. Vivid smoky topaz hue; strawberries, raspberries and peaches; a dusty, dusky minerality, like paving stones warmed by the sun; hints of cloves and dried thyme; beautiful balance between bright acidity and a moderately lush texture, but altogether spare and elegant. A gorgeous rosé, very much a presence on the palate."
We are happy to see our Brancato well-received in its first appearance in the United States. I hope you have the opportunity to find some near you and taste it!
