External Reviews for Poggio Al Tesoro Mediterra Toscana IGT
The Poggio al Tesoro is an incredible Tuscan estate located in Bolgheri with vineyards right next to Sassicaia, a stone's throw from Ornellaia and down the road from Ca'Marcanda- Quite a neighborhood! What's even more remarkable is that they can produce a marvelous Super Tuscan wine like this 2007 Mediterra for such an incredibly affordable price. The Wine Advocate recently scored it 91 points saying "The estate’s 2007 Mediterra is 40% Syrah, 30% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon. This positively sparkles on the palate with the essence of crushed rocks, violets, cinnamon and jammy blueberries in a totally seductive expression of Bolgheri. In the last two vintages Mediterra has emerged as one of the finest values in Maremma, a part of Tuscany not exactly known for inexpensive wines. The Syrah in Mediterra comes from young vines that will one day be used for a separate Syrah bottling once the plants have acquired sufficient age. That will be a fascinating wine to follow. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2017." Very Limited!!
