Friday Tasting: Producer Spotlight: Poggio Anima

  • Mom & Pop Wine Shop 6908 NE Sandy Blvd Portland (map)

This week we will taste a line-up of wines from various regions of Italy produced under the label Poggio Animaโ€” a joint venture between one of Tuscany's rising stars, Riccardo Campinoti of Le Ragnaie in Montalcino and his U.S.A. importer Ronnie Sanders of Vine Street Imports. The idea is straightforward: to source great vineyards from existing relationships and produce a real wine that conveys a place and a grape. These wines are not bulk wines or leftover juice from a winery; instead, they are the result of long-standing relationships with reputable and respected growers throughout Italy. These wines, which are brand new to the Portland area are perfect for everyday meals in terms of both style and pricing. As usual, $5 for wine tasting and snacks.
