“Rich and full, this is not a delicate flower but rather an assertive gem” – The Drunken Cyclist

2016 Il Poggione Brancato Rosato Montalcino: Retail $18. 100% Sangiovese. True Rosé. So this is my kind of rosé (OK, I say that concerning just about every rosé)—it is not a blend, it is a “true” rosé, and it is delicious. Rich and full, this is not a delicate flower but rather an assertive gem. Sure, it is a lovely strawberry pink in the glass, but it has plenty of verve and spunk. Not as tart as some rosés on the market, but those other rosés don’t share this wine’s heft. Honestly? I would not drink this on its own. Rather, I would pair it with some robust barbecue, grilled fish, or even your mother-in-law’s dry pot roast–can’t really go wrong here. Outstanding. 90-92 Points.”  For Full Article
