"A pure expression of Cabernet Franc, the 2010 Poveriano is a dense and thickly concentrated wine that underlines how easily this French grape has adapted to Central Italy. The bouquet is dense and rich with black fruit aroma, pencil shaving and cured meat or leather. The mouthfeel is surprisingly soft and supple. -ML" –Mar 2016
“Poveriano” gets its name from a vineyard on the Selvagrossa estate which historically was an old road named Poveriano.
The wine is made from a strict selection of Cabernet Franc grapes. The grapes were destemmed, pressed, and vinified using methods that ensure a very gentle processing. The fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks. After fermentation, the wine aged in new barriques (Allier and Troncasse) for 14 months, and then in bottle for 6 months before release.
