Poggio gli Angeli Sangiovese IGT

2018

La Gerla rents and fully farms this vineyard in Castelnuovo dell'Abate in the southern part of the appellation. The vines are 15 years old, so they prefer to make a younger, fresher wine from it. Fermented in stainless steel, aged in used Slavonian oak botti for 4 months.  15,000 bottles produced.

"The 2018 La Gerla Poggio gli Angeli Sangiovese shows depths of black cherry and spicy cedar, sweeter than the 2017 that stands next to it, with haunting dark florals that pull me closer to the glass. On the palate, silky textures give way to an intense mix of dark red berry fruits, both savory and sweet spices and wild herbal tones. The finish is long, as saturating spice coats the senses, offset by juicy acids, with hints of cedar and red wile berries lingering on."
