Available for:
Category Red Wine
Region Italy, Tuscany, Bolgheri
Brand Poggio al Tesoro
Alcohol/vol 14%
A fragrant and intensely fruity red wine, where the aromas of blackberries, plums and cherries are interwoven with more incisive peppery notes. The result of a winning blend of Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, Mediterra succeeds in the difficult task of expressing the rich complexity of Bolgheri's terroir with an easy- drinking, exceedingly enjoyable style. An ideal pairing with various meat dishes, cold cuts and medium- matured cheeses, including Italian pecorino. It should be enjoyed slightly chilled, with seafood dishes such as mullet in tomato sauce, poached fish and Livorno-style salt cod.

The 2018 Mediterra, Poggio al Tesoro's entry-level wine, is terrific. Fruit, floral and enticing, this mid-weight offering has plenty to give. I would prefer to drink it over the next few years, while the flavors remain vibrant. A burst of red berry fruit, blood orange and spice lingers on the mid-weight finish.

Blackberry, black currant, tamarind paste and black pepper flavors are the highlights of this dark, meaty red. There is plenty of fruit to match the dense tannins. Syrah, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now through 2024. 7,916 cases made, 2,500 cases imported.
