Fattoria di Magliano Poggio Bestiale 2012
We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.
Produced 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. 25% Cabernet Franc, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot.
We have had the pleasure of meeting both father and son from Fattoria di Magliano; Agostino Lenci was a prestigious shoemaker before fulfilling his dream of owning a vineyard. Today, his winemaker son Nicola is crafting gorgeous, organic, authentic Maremma Toscana wines.

James SucklingA fresh, clean red with strawberry, cherry and lemon-rind aromas and flavors. Medium to full body, firm tannins and a crisp finish. Lots of bright acidity gives this backbone. Better in 2016.
VinousA dark, sumptuous wine,…offer[ing] tons of depth in a forward, voluptuous style that is best enjoyed on the young side, while the flavors remain bright. Mint, lavender and sweet spices add nuance throughout. The 2012 is an attractive wine, although it does not appear to have the delineation, energy or intensity of the very best years.
Wine EnthusiastThis savory blend of 40% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Cabernet Franc and 5% Syrah opens with aromas of roasted coffee bean, leather, tobacco and dark woodland berry. The chewy palate offers juicy plum, cassis and clove alongside polished tannins. Drink through 2019.
