Poggio al Tesoro Il Seggio Bolgheri DOC

2018

In a Nutshell

A dash of Petit Verdot gives this wine more structure.

Tasting Notes

This wine is intense ruby red in colour with aromas of fresh crunchy red berries and dark fruit nuances enriched with layers of tobacco and spice. The fruit follows onto the complex palate that combines 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 barriques from Allier (30% new, 70% second fill) during which time malolactic fermentation occurred naturally.
