On his popular blog, “Reverse Wine Snob,” Jon Thorsen declares Il Poggione Brancato Rosé, “my new favorite rosé” after doing a comparative tasting with a few of the other popular new rosés. In his words:
“In fact, when we tasted this wine we made the mistake of putting it first in a sampling of a few different bottles and frankly nothing else could even come close to the bar set by this wine.”
“Swirling and sniffing the 2014 Il Poggione Brancato Rosato di Toscana reveals a very fresh and enticing aroma of cherry, raspberry, strawberry, some floral notes and hints of watermelon and tangerine.
