POGGIO AL TUFO

Alicante

Toscana

This Alicante comes from from vines planted in a single-vineyard site called Bottinello, which benefits from a Southern exposure and a volcanic soil rich in tufo rock. After a 10-day fermentation period in stainless-steel tanks, it sees 12 months of aging in large Slavonian oak casks.  Very intense ruby red, the Alicante is deep and dark purple to the core.  The wine has a nose of vanilla, nuts and dark fruit, followed by a lush palate filled with cherry, blackberries, cut grass and dark chocolate.  Wonderful with Italian pasta with meat sauce, white and red meats, and cheeses.
