What We're Drinking Now - Poggio Verrano Dromos 2006

Sunday dinner calls for Rachel's "Pot Pie", a family recipe stew made with venison and egg noodles.  In search of a Bordeaux blend with an Italian twist, we pulled a bottle of red from the Maremma from the cellar.  The Poggio Verrano Dromos 2006 (39.95 - LCBO #107383)

This wine shows the perfect balance of poise and power so typical in Maremma and Bolgheri in 2006.  It displays perfumed black berry fruit, mint, tar, and a hint of black olive on the nose.  More of the same on the palate, joined by black currants and grilled savory.  Can't take my nose out of the glass.  Drink now through 2019.  92 Points.  -Andy
