Giovanni Poggiali has slowly restructured Pagliarese's 20 hectares of vineyards replanting with a massal selection from old vines dating back to 1966. The Riserva is a selection of choice bunches in the vineyard. Aged in large Slavonian oak, it has a slightly wild, untamed character marrying Mediterranean herbs with dark forest undergrowth. Succulent fleshy plum fills the mouth which is packed with personality and chewy tannins.
