2006 Capatosta Poggio Argentiera Morellino di Scansano DOC Elisabetta Tosi November 22, 2010 Tasting Notes 2 Comments This is not a wine: this is an icon of Maremma Toscana! The grapes are mainly from old Sangiovese clones, with high density planting and extremely limited production, which give the wine ruby coloration in the glass, and a bouquet of dark flowers (violet) and spice (pepper, cinnamon, cloves) but also with a nuance of chocolate. In the mouth it is fresh, with good acidity, still fruity, with smooth tannins. A very elegant and drinkable wine, perfect with grilled red meals. WHO: Poggio Argentiera WHAT: Sangiovese blend WHERE: Maremma, Tuscany, Italy WHEN: 2006 HOW MUCH: $34.00 (Media sample) http://poggioargentiera.com gianpaolo thank you for the tasting note Elisabetta, we are now changing the way that Capatosta used to be, making it in a much lighter and more drinkable style. Let’s see if you like the 2009 better. Ciao Gianpaolo Lizzy @Gianpaolo, now I’m really curious to taste it!
