Poggio al Tesoro Mediterra Toscana IGT

2018

In a Nutshell

Fantastic Syrah-led red from an exciting Bolgheri producer.

Tasting Notes

This is a fragrant and intensely fruity red wine, with aromas of blackberries, plums and cherries interwoven with white pepper and elegant herbaceous notes. This blend of Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot is a fresh, easy-drinking wine that nevertheless expresses the rich complexity of Bolgheri.

Production Notes

After destemming and soft pressing, fermentation took place in stainless-steel tanks at temperatures of 26-28°C for 12 days. Following malolactic fermentation, the wine was transferred to second-use French oak barriques where it was aged for eight months.
