Fanti Poggio Torto appears an intense purple red color in the glass. The nose is complex with notes of fruits such as black cherry, plum and blackberry accompanied by sweet spices as vanilla, cloves and anise. Structured and well balanced on the palate with the same notes perceived at the nose, alongside freshness and medium-high acidity. The finish is persistent.
"Poggio Torto" red wine was born from the encounter of the Tuscan Sangiovese with the international varieties of Merlot, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon. The name of this wine is inspired by the irregular shape of the hill "Poggio d'Arna" in front of the winery; Indeed “Poggio” means hill while “Torto” indicates the leaning part of the hill. This wine with its intense color is full bodied and well balanced.
