Il Poggio Sangiovese Rubicone 2012 is a delicious red from Castel S. Pietro Italy. It begins its ascent with pomegranate, cranberries, and savory herbs. It leaps with red velvety raspberries, and beautiful rubies of open fruit. This wine is much less of a tannic bomb than most Italian wines, and is certainly no Super Tuscan. However, with pepper roasted chicken on polenta, it is a perfect pairing. This sangiovese is deliciously acidic, and brilliantly refreshing.
