Food Pairings for Poggio Antico Supertuscan Blend Toscana IGT Madre
Color Intense ruby red, with purple reflections. Bouquet Concentrated, with hints of black ripe wild fruit, mocha, cocoa and spices. Taste Warm, intense, with hints of black fruit, leather and black pepper. On the palate it is concentrated, round and youthful. Very good aging potential. Technical Characteristics Grape Variety Sangiovese 50% - Cabernet Sauvignon 50% Alcohol by volume 13,45% Net Dry Extract 35,33 g/liter Total Acidity (in Tartaric Acid) 5,70 g/liter Volatile Acidity (in Acetic Acid) 0,52 g/liter Soil Characteristics With Eocene origins, rich in clay, which ensures a perfect drainage. Vinification In 80-hectoliter stain-less steel tanks, truncated-cone shaped, at controlled temperature, which never exceeds 32°C. First fermentation lasted 14 days. Thanks to the particular technical characteristics of these tanks, which also have a completely removable lid, the punch-down system is used, instead of the pump-over procedure, in order to achieve a better and gentler extraction, avoiding the use of pumps. Aging 30 months in total, 18 of which in 500-liter French oak tonneaux. The two varietals are blended together at the end of the aging in wood.
