Tasting notes
Intense, bold aromas of cherry and raspberry abound. Full-bodied and persistent with smoky, spicy, and earthy flavors. Ripe, sweet tannins and ample acidity finish off this wine.

Rating
 Wine Spectator 90 points (Oct 15 2013)
Well-toned, yet shows ample flesh to its juicy cherry, currant and tobacco flavors. The tannins are dense, leaving a tactile sensation on the gums. Shows fine length, with an aftertaste of spice and tobacco. Drink now through 2023. 3,000 cases made.-BS
 OTH 93 points (Sep7 2012)
Very aromatic with currants and flowers. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a beautiful fruit intensity on the finish. Bright finish. Drink now or hold.
 OTH 91 points (Dec15 5/20)
Deep, bright red. Superripe aromas of red fruits, truffle and mocha. Sweeter and mellower than the 2011 on entry, showing good lift and freshness to the flavors of red cherry, menthol and licorice. Then more closed and austere on the energetic back end, which shows serious tannins and good flinty lift. -- Ian D’Agata

Wine maker notes
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.

Technical notes
40% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Cabernet Franc, 5% Petit Verdot

Food pairing
Pairs well with steak and game dishes.
