SERIOUS, DRY REDS
2015 IL SEGGIO, Poggio Al Tesoro. Bolgheri, Tuscany, Italy
The temperate coastal climate seems to produce Bordeaux-style wines with more ripeness and charm than one would expect elsewhere in Italy. This is a clear example of that style, but at a very sensible price by the standards of the area.
"Deep black-red in color, with earth, complex aromas in which notes of copse and warm stone mingle with fine leather and sun-warmed plums: classy and refined. It's deep, dark, vivid and long on the palate, with supple yet ample tannins; the bright fruits shade into laurel and thyme, and that warm-stone finesse is there on the finish. Beautifully crafted Bolgheri. 2018-2030."
