POGGIO AL CASONE - Toscana, Italy

POGGIO AL CASONE "SUPER TUSCAN" - Tuscany, ITALY 

Intense deep ruby red colour with notes of strawberry, blackberry, cherry and white pepper, laying on a texture of balsamic eucalyptus and mint. A smooth yet crisp, fruity palate compliment the big and bold aromas, giving a smooth, rich and balanced taste with a final touch of sea sprayed wood and leather on the long finish.

The Poggio al Casone vineyard is located on the first hills overlooking the Tyrrhenian Sea in the municipality of Crespina, an ancient castle in the province of Pisa. In the heart of the vineyards are located the main villa and the old houses built during the Leopoldina era (circa 1800) and recently restored respecting their history, now set of the wine experimentation centre of the Castellani Family and of a renowned resort farmhouse. The vineyards cover about 32 hectares of alluvial soils consisting of tufaceous sands alternating with layers of gravel from river result of repeated flooding of the mouth of Arno river.
