Taking its name from this wild spot which for years was the home to the fearsome wild boar and other beasts, this is Agostino's Bordeaux blend. Perched on the steep hill right by the sea here in this beautiful corner of southern Tuscany. The vineyard is now a beautifully tamed part of the landscape. All the Bordeaux varieties are grown here and produce this classic Super-Tuscan. It completely over-delivers on joy. There is such a lovely, sophisticated feel to it. The delicious glossy fruit is perfectly mature and there is no sappy richness at all. A bright and crisp backbone keep this just so drinkable it is a brilliant wine at this price, effortlessly impressive and stylish.
roduced from a single vineyard whose name references the steep slopes that are considered a “beast” to cultivate by the vineyard workers, the label artistically reflects this characteristic. Full in body and well-structured, Poggio Bestiale bursts from the glass with blackberries and licorice aromas, and hints of smoke and graphite. Its elegance is marked by the sweet tannins that linger on the palate along with aromas of leather and spices. New, medium-toasted French oak barrels are used for aging the wine for 14-18 months. The wine is cellared in bottle for 6 months for further refinement.
The Fattoria di Magliano lies in the middle of a vast agricultural estate deep in the famous Maremma region. The heart and soul of the farm are its vineyard and winery.
