Poggio Anima is 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 Poggio Anima concept is straightforward: to source great vineyards from existing relationships and produce real wines which convey the ‘soul’ (anima) of each site and each grape variety. The wines are not ‘bulk’ wines or leftover juice, but rather they are the result of long-standing relationships with respected growers throughout Italy. 

Poggio Anima are real wines, from real places, made by real people.

The Grillo vineyard is located in Western Sicily, in the area of Chirchiaro, between Salemi and Vita, roughly 25 miles from Marsala. At an altitude of around 1,600 feet above sea level and with a proximity to the sea there is a definitive freshness to the wine. 

The aromas creep from the glass with white peaches and white plums combined with scents of wildflowers and a hint of mango.   Like the 2016, there is a breadth to the weight on the palate retaining freshness though and not showing the wear & tear of the vintage.  It is well-balanced and medium-bodied with a soft palate, fresh mineral notes and tropical fruit characters and a very high-toned, fresh finish.
