Vibrant notes of cherry, plum, and blackberry mark a brisk entry, after which the wine rolls out copious amounts of juicy, chewy, supple fruit, seasoned with a deft touch of vanilla and spice from partial aging in new oak barrels. The palate impression is succulent and graceful, with plenty of verve and lift. Ready to drink now, but has the potential for short-term aging of 18 months to 2 years.
Poggio Verrano's flagship wine, Dromos, opens with an expressive bouquet of dark raspberries, grilled herbs, and vanilla oak. On the palate, it shows formidable density and richness, with a warmth that captures the best qualities of Maremma. Clearly intended for the cellar, this impressive wine will continue to evolve gracefully for an additional 5-7 years.
