Poggio alle Nane 2020 is an intense ruby red color. The nose presents aromas of ripe dark fruit, black currants and plums accompanied by spicy and balsamic notes of licorice, coffee and sweet paprika. Its bouquet is completed by delicate hints of Mediterranean herbs and lavender. A rich and enveloping palate is mouth filling with elegant tannins. The finish is long and harmonious defined by undertones of tobacco and blueberry chocolate.

Production Notes

Grape clusters were carefully selected, and hand harvested into crates. The berries underwent a second selection on sorting tables before destemming and gentle crushing. The must was transferred by gravity flow into truncated stainless-steel tanks where fermentation took place at a controlled temperature of 28 °C (82 °F) and maceration on the skins for a period of approximately 20 days. The wine then went into barriques where malolactic fermentation took place, followed by aging in French oak for 16 months.

Producer Information

Located in the Maremma, Tuscany’s rising star of a region, the eye-wateringly beautiful Le Mortelle estate has belonged to the Antinori family since 1999. It is named after the wild myrrh – mortella – found in this part of the Tuscan coast, and indeed the fostering of local flora and fauna is a central aim of the estate, which includes fifteen hectares of organic orchards in addition to the vineyards.

Cabernet Franc has found a home from home in the warm, sea-breeze-tempered climate, bringing wonderful aroma and freshness to the red wine.
