NOME VINO: Morellino di Scansano Poggio Cavalli 2011
PRODUTTORE: Cantine Baroncini
ZONA: Toscana - Italia
VALUTAZIONE: @ @ @ @ @
Baroncini in the "Manhattan of Tuscany" (San Gimignano) has been wine-makers since 1489, when a man with the name Antonio di Bastiano, started with making the Vernaccia wine. Nowadays the Baroncini family has a vast portfolio of wines, beyond the Vernaccai they have an Orvieto Classico, different varieties of Chianti, Nobile di Montepulciano, Brunello and Morellin di Scansano.

This Morellino di Scansano is their basic Morellino, called "Poggio Cavallo". It's made at their vineyard "Le Mandorlae" in the Maremma National Park, a very rough and rocky terrain, west of Siena, close to the Mediterranean Sea.

Poggio Cavalli has a classic ruby red limpid colour, a discrete and relative complex nose, with a persistent and relative intensive impact on the palette. Quite a lot of red fruit, humus and mint in the nose. My palette felt a lot of mature red and dark fruit, some black pepper, mint, roasted nuts, caramel and slightly of oak.

Spaghetti carbonara was my favourite dish with this Morellino, and quite delicious with pasta mixed with zucchini, parmesan, garlic and onions. It went suprisingly well with pasta, tuna, dill and garlic (I love garlic by the way).

To summarize my impressions of Poggio Cavalli I would like to say that it had less intensity, heat, spiciness and tannins than I expected. But it's dryness, freshness, roundness and richness in the tastes saved it up to good rating, a nice everyday-wine.
