POGGIO AL TESORO
Mediterra IGT Toscana 2011 IDR. 550/btl (IDR. 6,600/dozen)
Tasting notes: Ruby red in colour with purple tints, this is a fragrant and intensely fruity wine, in which blackberry, plum and cherry are underpinned by spicy notes of white pepper and elegant herbaceous aromas. On the palate, it is fresh, intense, and surprisingly persistent.
SOLOSOLE: FROM SAUVIGNON BLANC TO RIESLING...
BUT 100% VERMENTINO!
We are often told that our young Solosole is reminiscent of the typical nuances of Sauvignon Blanc. This is due to Vermentino’s thiols that resemble some of the traits of Sauvignon. With ageing, however, everything changes: the tertiary aromas that are produced during ageing give us an entirely different set of aromatic properties, making Solosole resemble a Riesling.
This is a prerogative of great wines, because being endowed with a large set of varietal aromas, with the development of secondary aromas during fermentation, they have the ability to evolve in a very elegant way, ageing and refining to develop a composite and elegant bouquet and pleasant mineral nuances, elements that can only be achieved after a few years of ageing in the bottle.
