POGGIO ALLE NANE 2017 DOC Maremma Toscana
Vintage Assessments Tasting Note Producer LE MORTELLE
This remarkable 2017 release highlight is a blend of 80% Cabernet Franc and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon is now starting to open up and show all its beauty. Extremely intense ruby purple in colour,. The expansive, rich, ripe, concentrated, still-fresh, cassis-black-cherry-Damson-plum fruit is in perfect harmony with the mineral-tinged, elegantly cedary notes. Dry, medium-full to full bodied, dense, surprisingly harmonious, well structured, intense, ripe, well balanced, Damson plum, black cherry and cassis fruit flavours with a lingering, bright, cedary finish. Has lovely mouthfeel and is truly a joy to drink now, although it will still evolve nicely over the next decade. When it is showing like this - don’t hesitate. It has 14% alcohol and 2 g/L residual sugar. NEW in Vintages. CSPC 556589

TASTING NOTE: The 2017 Maremma Toscana Poggio alle Nane is a blend of mostly Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon with some Carmenère from a decidedly hot and dry vintage. I visited the estate in the summer of 2017, and how could I forget those scorching temperatures? This wine shows an uncanny sense of confidence. It sets out its goals, and it accomplishes them with flying colors. The goal is to harness the natural heat and sunshine of Castiglione della Pescaia with dark fruit, extraction and soft tannins. Those are precisely the qualities you get here. Le Mortelle is owned by Marchesi Antinori of Florence, so you can count on rock-solid precision and consistency across the line of wines.
