Martoccia 2022 Poggio Apricale Toscana Rosso
Clean, bright, and pretty, Poggio Apricale is the everyday offering from high altitude Brunello producer Brunelli. The Brunelli's produce this young and jovial Sangiovese from the Martoccia Farm located about 500 meters from the center of Montalcino in southern Tuscany blended with fruit from his Montecucco vineyard. Built on a foundation of Sangiovese Grosso, this ripe, unoaked rosso supplies terrific “grip” for such a freshly-styled wine. Classic Tuscan aromas of morello cherry, sage, blackberry, and warm terra cotta fill the glass, along with a supple, approachable mid-palate. A small production wine from a very small estate, this is artisanal wine at its charming, low yield best.
