Poggio al Tesoro Mediterra 2018
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Bolgheri|
|Brand||Poggio al Tesoro|
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.
