Poggio al Tesoro Mediterra Toscana IGT

2014

In a Nutshell

Fantastic Syrah-led red from an exciting Bolgheri producer.

Tasting Notes

A fragrant and intensely fruity red wine, with aromas of blackberries, plums and cherries interwoven with more incisive peppery notes. The blend of Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot results in an easy-drinking wine whose characters expresses the rich complexity of Bolgheri.

Production Notes

After destemming 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 French oak barriques where malolactic fermentation was allowed to take place.
