Poggio al Tesoro Il Seggio Bolgheri DOC

2015

In a Nutshell

A fantastic addition featuring a touch of Petit Verdot.

Tasting Notes

This wine is intense ruby red in colour with aromas of fresh crunchy red berries enriched with mineral and spicy notes. The red fruit follows onto the palate which is medium bodied with elegant silky tannins and a lively clean finish.

Production Notes

Following destemming and gentle pressing to partially rupture the berries, fermentation took place over 12 days in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks at 28-30°C. The wine was then aged for 15 months in 225 litre French oak barrique from Allier (30% new, 70% second fill) during which time malolactic fermentation occurred naturally.

Press Quotes & Awards

Beautiful plump and plush fruit; silky and smooth and full. Highly Commended

The Wine Merchant Top 100 2019

Plum, blackberry jam, chocolate, spice and new leather give this fleshy, pliant Bolgheri red much of its considerable appeal. This is very nicely done. 91 points

Antonio Galloni, “Central Tuscany: Maremma, Montepulciano and Beyond”, vinous.com, 8 March 2019

A pretty and balanced red from this appellation with currant, walnut and fresh-tobacco character. Medium body, fine tannins and a clean, fresh finish. 92 points.
