The ruby red Rosso di Toscana IGT by Tenuta il Poggione is a classic Tuscan with an intense scent of red fruits, black cherries and sweet spices such as vanilla and liquorice. Delicate approaches of violets, brought in by Sangiovese, as well as some blackcurrant and plums from Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot refine the bouquet.
The strong, fruity taste of the Toscana Rosso from Il Poggione convinces with beautifully integrated and invigorating fruit acid, light melting on the palate and fine tannins.
Vinification of Tuscany Rosso by Tenuta Il Poggione
This red wine is vinified from Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, which grow in the vineyards of Tenuta Il Poggione between 150 and 450 metres abovesea level. After manual harvesting, the grapes are ground and fermented in stainless steel under temperature control for two weeks. The pomace is repeatedly submerged, so that the grape skins are particularly deprived of many aromas. The must is then aged in large oak barrels of 30 and 50 hl and in 350-l French oak barriques and finally pulled onto the bottle, where the wine matures for some time. The vinification and the combination of the three grape varieties result in a soft, fragrant wine, ideal for every day.
