Badiola

The 2014 Poggio Badiola is an attractive, fruity Sangiovese/Merlot blend to drink young, while the flavors remain vibrant. This is beautifully done at its level and for the year.

Refined and silky with juicy fruit. Plenty of ripe plum and berry character. Hints of almond and nut undertones. Full body, soft tannins and a flavorful finish. Excellent value. Real Tuscan wine at a wonderful price.

Fresh and balanced, this blend of sangiovese with 30 percent merlot shows the cooling effects of high-altitude vineyards, with tangy acidity and bright cranberry flavors. It makes a versatile partner for weeknight pasta or pizza.

Black cherry and currant flavors are accented by violet notes in this structured, muscular red. This shows density and grip, as the spice- and mineral-accented finish lingers.

The 2010 Poggio alla Badiola is a hugely delicious wine for the money. This Sangiovese/Merlot blend boasts gorgeous delineation in its fruit to match its harmonious personality.

This well-priced blend of Sangiovese (70%) and Merlot offers friendly and approachable aromas of ripe berry fruit, blackberry jam, spice and light touches of leather and tobacco. The fresh finish makes it a perfect Tuscan red to pair with ravioli stuffed with minced meat or cheese.
