Poggio Al Tesoro Bolgheri Il Seggio 2017
The Seggio river is the largest watercourse in the municipality of Castagneto Carducci. This Bolgheri Rosso is produced with typical grape varieties, carefully harvested and vinified to ensure density and concentration but also to create a very fresh and easy-drinking style of wine.
Intense ruby red in colour. The nose exhibits lovely fresh, crunchy fruit, enriched with mineral and spicy notes. The palate is medium bodied with hints of red berries. The elegant, silky tannins are wholly enveloping and velvety-soft. The finish is pristine, clean, and vivacious.
It pairs effortlessly with a wide range of dishes such as grilled meats – especially Chianina beef – spit-roasts, ossobuco, charcuterie of wild boar, medium-matured and fully-matured pecorino cheese, and smoked ricotta. It is enhanced with pasta prepared with white meat ragout, pappardelle with hare. Serve at 16-18°C and uncork an hour before drinking.
