Overview

The Fattoria di Magliano cellar was completed in 2001, the year the first wine was made. The company currently produces a DOC wine - Morellino di Scansano - and two IGT Maremma Toscana wines – a white from Vermentino grapes, and a red from Cabernet and Merlot grapes. The cellar covers an area of 1,500 square metres and is fitted with baths and air-conditioned and heat-controlled rooms for storage and aging. Production is supervised by oenologist, Graziana Grassini. Fattoria di Magliano products can be bought at the company’s premises and through its own sales network.

Wine Advocate - Score: 94

A heady array of smoke, tar, scorched earth, rosemary and wild cherries emerges as the 2007 Poggio Bestiale makes its first impression. An exotic core of black fruit follows, struggling to emerge from a wall of powerful tannins. There is a hypnotic quality to the wine that is hard to fully capture. A last blast of dark fruit informs the powerful, brooding finish. Today the oak is a bit overwhelming but all that is needed is another few years in the cellar. This is another fine effort from Fattoria di Magliano. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2019.

2009 POGGIO BESTIALE Fattoria di Magliano Rosso Maremma The flagship 2009 Poggio Bestiale is 40% Merlot, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot aged in French oak barrels. It bursts from the glass with blackberries, smoke, graphite and licorice. I especially like the way the wine fleshes out on the mid-palate and finish. Hints of new leather, spices and licorice linger on the close. This is a great showing from the Poggio Bestiale.
