Poggio al Tesoro Mediterra Toscana IGT

2013

In a Nutshell

Fantastic Syrah-led red from an exciting Bolgheri producer.

Tasting Notes

A fragrant and intensely fruity red wine, where the aromas of blackberries, plums and cherries are interwoven with more incisive peppery notes. The result of a winning blend of Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, Mediterra succeeds in the difficult task of expressing the rich complexity of Bolgheri with an easy-drinking, exceedingly pleasurable style.

Production Notes

After de-stemming and soft pressing with partial rupture of the berries, fermentation and a 12 day maceration took place in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks at 26-28°C. After fermentation, the wine was aged for eight months in second use oak barriques where malolactic fermentation was allowed to take place.
