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.

Gorgeous aroma of rich dark fruit, intense and almost exotic in its richness. Chewy, dark and full-bodied but so velvety. Long, too. There's oak spice finely integrated. Bags of pleasure with just enough freshness for balance. 17 points
