Tasting Notes and Description

Poggio al Tesoro Toscana Mediterra is a captivating expression of the innovative spirit and excellence of the Poggio al Tesoro estate, nestled in the prestigious Bolgheri region of Tuscany. Unlike the traditional Chianti, Mediterra ventures into the realm of Super Tuscan wines, a category that has garnered international acclaim for its quality and creativity. This wine showcases a blend of Syrah, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon, offering a modern interpretation of Tuscan terroir that respects the region's winemaking heritage while embracing the potential of international grape varieties. The Poggio al Tesoro estate is renowned for its meticulous vineyard management and state-of-the-art winemaking techniques, which ensure that each variety contributes its best qualities to the final blend. The Mediterra undergoes careful aging in oak barrels, which enriches the wine's complexity and texture without overshadowing the vibrant fruit flavors.

The Poggio al Tesoro Toscana Mediterra presents an alluring deep ruby color, with a bouquet rich in dark fruits, such as blackberries and plums, elegantly intertwined with notes of spices, herbs, and a touch of vanilla from its time in oak. On the palate, it reveals a full-bodied yet refined structure, with a generous layering of ripe fruit flavors balanced by silky tannins and a lively acidity that leads to a harmonious and enduring finish. This wine's sophistication and depth make it an excellent pairing with a variety of cuisines, from traditional Tuscan dishes like wild boar ragù and Florentine steak to international fare that calls for a bold, expressive wine. Mediterra's versatility also extends to cheese boards and savory vegetarian dishes, making it a favorite among those seeking to explore the innovative side of Tuscan winemaking. Poggio al Tesoro Toscana Mediterra stands as a testament to the region's ability to innovate within the framework of its storied winemaking tradition, offering a modern classic that appeals to both traditionalists and adventurous wine enthusiasts alike.
