Poderi Sanguineto I & II, Rosso di Montepulciano, Italy 2022

Poderi Sanguineto I & II is Dora Forsoni’s 50-hectare family estate in Montepulciano. Dora started working in the vineyard alongside her father back in 1968. He taught her how to tend their old vines of Prugnolo Gentile (the Montepulciano variant of Sangiovese), Mammolo, Canaiolo and Nero Toscano—organically farmed always—and how to make very traditional wines. But he sold off most of the fruit in bulk; Dora scrapped that practice in 1997 and began bottling Sanguineto wines for the first time.

Dora walks and works in the vines all day every day and has a very keen eye and confident touch. There are zero chemicals used here and the soils are worked up to 3 times per year. Treatments are entirely organic and relatively few in application compared to those of her neighbors. Organic olive trees (harvested for the pressing of oil) and wildlife (harvested for the dinner table) abound in the vineyard. 

A beautifully balanced wine with bright cherry fruit, flowers and tar; medium bodied with a nervy energy. The aromatics and integrated tannins make this wine great for right now but also for a little time in a bottle. This bottle reaches far beyond its price.
